Clear golden. Grassy and floral hop aroma with some straw and light malt. Dry with grassy, straw taste, some decent bitterness. Overall a pretty good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some floral notes and grass. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a sharp grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some good carbonation. A full flavored lager that is recommended for a good tasting experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a crystal clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma of grassy hops and biscuity malts - not a whole lot on the nose. Flavour of dry grassy hops and straw-like biscuity malts to back, though the hops shine more. Unobtrusive on the palate, but with a pleasantly hoppy bite on the finish. Solid pils.

Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a smallish white head that slowly dissipates but leaves some spotty lace on the way down. Smells of earthy with a hint of fruit, floral with a hint of wet dog. It honestly smells a bit too fruity. The flavor is bready and malty up front but soon cut with spicy floral and fruity hops. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost sticky mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, but the sample I had was either older or this beer is a bit too sweet for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours a chill haze deep golden with a towering, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Mega lacing. Nose is sharp lemon, orange pulp, honeydew, small vanilla. Taste is grassy, mega drying, quite bitter, nutty. Palate is clean, thicker, ending so dry that it is a bit astringent/wooly. Big Brasil nut bitterness with small copper/metallic. Very good. Loses the richer, oil palate of the world’s best pilsners, but this is quite a nice attempt.

Holy moly spaghetteroni. VERY flavorful pils. "Green" & dry, yeasty aroma. Tart, lemony citrus and dry finish.

Great Bohemian Pilsener. A little more hop flavor than you’ll normally find in this style, and perhaps a little more bitter, but it works very well. There are enough step by step ratings I thought I’d just give my two cents ... Anyone who calls this beer disappointing or "worst from DDC" is simply not a fan of the style. Not every beer is supposed to be a Tripel or an Imperial Stout. I had this one on the Terrasse on Laurier street and thouroughly enjoyed it.
