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.

Tallboy can from 8-pack, no bottles yet? Deep bronze-yellow with minimal foam. Very grainy aroma, taste and feel, with just enough tang and bitterness for my liking.

A decent, solid Pilsner from a home brewery. Taste is clean and bread-y and a bit bitter on the finish. Pretty refreshing overall and decent- not particularly hoppy. OK.

Like Hippy Hop -- the review below mine -- I’m always on the look out for a decent pilsner & am usually underwhelmed by what I find. This beer offers little hope on improving this sense of lost hope. Has that vitamin C absorbic acid flush that a good pils has but then it just falls flat. Meh.

Was pretty sure this wasn’t going to be the holy grail in my quest for a great pilsner, and it isn’t. Pour is dark gold with a small, quick-fading cap. Nose is virtually non-existent. Pale grain and....pale grain? Taste is clean, light cereal with a slightly bitter/spicy finish. Passable pils.

Pilsners have never excited me. Preferable to a Pale Lager but not by much. There just doesn’t seem to be a depth of flavour. some of the better ones from Europe or NA micros are okay, but really only okay. This is a clean yellowish gold, a frothing white head makes for a pretty appearance. The looks soon fade away and give rise to a mediocre beer that tastes and smells of fairly tame cereal graininess, corn and very mild spiciness. The texture seems a but "meh" as this just sort of vanishes down the throat without notice.

Can. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Nothing too special but a decent cereal aroma and taste. Easy on any hops. Fairly light and refreshing if not overly flavorful.

A decent Canadian take on a pilsner. Doesn't have nearly enough bitterness or crispness on the palate.

473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a blond colour with medium white head. Aroma is cereal, wheat. Clear and crisp. Pretty good pils.

Poured from can. Cereal and hay aroma. Clear and golden with white head. Very light bitter taste. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation, with an abrupt finish. Pretty average overall.

Big can from the State store in Charlottetown. Pours a brilliantly clear deep golden color with a good sized bubbly white head that lasts forever. Sweet grainy bready pilsner and faint spicy floral hops. Flavor follows the aroma quite well. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. A bit sweet but easy enough to drink, I enjoyed this.

473ml can from an LCBO in Toronto. Amber with a loose white head; aroma of farmyard straw; crisp, sweet, malty taste; and hardly any finish. As bland and indifferent as many European pilsners.
