COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first pilsner was brewed in 1842, over a hundred years ago, in the Bohemian town of Plzen. Revolutionary at the time, it was a fired-brewed beer characterized by a rich golden colour, sweet malty flavour and an abundance of hops. Our brewmaster visited the Czech Republic to study their methods and in honour of our 20th anniversary we are proud to share his interpretation of this classic beer style. Similar to original pilsners, our direct fire brewing process and combination of specialty malts yield a beer with a deep golden colour and delicious malt flavours. Natural spring water creates a soft pure background on which Czech hops impart a fresh fragrant aroma and bitter finish.

355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light cereal grains and spicy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a sharp spicy hop bitterness that finishes clean. Light to mediun body and adequate carbonation leave a pleasing sensation on the palate. Fits in nicely with the best of this style and highly recommended to sample.

Frothmeister (547) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
473ml can. Pours pale yellow with an off-white head. Aroma is malt heavy, dusty, with some citrusy hops peeking through. Malt base, with faint caramel taste and sweetness with a good amount of hops. It’s great for a pilsner, but doesn’t quite live up to it’s price.

Golden straw colour. Head disappears quickly . Light malt and slightly fruity in the nose.Crisp clean pilsner taste with a nice Saaz snap in the finish. Very Czech pils like. Maybe the best Canadian made Czech pils I’ve had. A very good example taste-wise of pilsner

Pours a clear golden colour with a thin head. Aroma is straw barn funk. The taste is nice straw and malty sweetness very light on the hops. Good pilsner

Indeed, this is a light-bodied pilsner with minimal taste. Unoffensive, unintruding, not a great example of the style yet you won’t be offended by its taste. It’s one of those proof-of-concept beers you often get from a micro - sure you can do it, but what do you intend to do with it?

Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée-jaune et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de houblon herbeux (foin et notes de gazon) et de pain avec de faibles traces métalliques. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et aux petites notes croustillantes ainsi qu’une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain avec des traces de céréales fraîches puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon herbeux (foin et gazon mouillé) avec de très faibles traces métalliques. Post-goût moyen et sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

can poured into weizen glass. Golden colour. Aroma of breads, grains, malts, a little metallic. Taste is malty with a back of the tongue bitter touch. Agree with others who would prefer more hop profile, however this is still quite refreshing and a pretty good pils.
