manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
Old rate. Bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy blonde with a thin white head. Aroma is honey, light cardboard. Flavour features a chalky malt with notes of honey, crisp german hops, and medium body. Reasonable for the style.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale golden-straw pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit straw-like. Sort of crackery with a touch of light chewiness. Bready with crackery pils malt. Very clean and fairly tasty.

disappointing, tastes almost exactly like blue, pours light color and tastes pretty cheap

Earlier Rating: 4/5/2008 Total Score: 2.4
Bottle - light orange with some good carbonation, light white head. Grassy hay aroma, some hops too. Fairly grass and hop flavour, some dryness there too, I had it at a friends party, handy and enjoyable for such occasions

Sammy (11060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
A very pale colour, on cask at C’est What Fall Fetval. Some cask bubbles. Hits the style, medum mouthfeel, but not too drinkable.
Earlier Rating: 5/6/2004 Total Score: 2.5
quality of beer which was a nicer than expected Dry and decent with a meal. Pleasant gold color.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2010 2010-09-24. Hazy pastel pale yellow, small frothy white head. 3+ Aroma of floral hops, dry straw. 5+ Flavour is mild, muted pale malts, floral, allusions to corn on the cob (but in a good way), light bitterness, odd finish. Average to light palate. Okay, inoffensive but pretty mildly flavoured. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0 Tap at Cest What as Chachi Pilsener, Toronto
Earlier Rating: 3/31/2004 Total Score: 2.5
2004-03-XX. Pale crisp yellow body. Grassy grainy aroma creeps forth from a fast disappearing white head. Pleasant bitterness is too young to come out to play. Overall impression of a thin bodied bland lager. At first I thought it was just too cold but letting it warm up a bit didn’t help much. Not unpleasant, but doesn’t make me want to run to the store for another either. 5/3/5/2/10 - 2.5

Spab (3334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear, bright yellow/gold with small white head. Mild aroma of grass, honey and bread. Flavour is a plesant mix of grains and grass with a nice honey sweetness. Fairly light body. Nothing spectacular but pleasant.

Frothmeister (717) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
341ml bottle. Pours a very light yellow, minimal head. Aromas of honey, white grape, peach. The taste is white grape too, slightly grassy. Sweet finish, a little pencil lead, with faint bitter hops. I’m not a lager guy, but this is pretty decent. Would buy again when the weather turns warm.

matt7215 (2278) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2008
on tap at the castle on king. pale yellow with some white head. some lacings. i neither paid for or enjoyed to majority of this half pint. aroma of grainy malt and floral noble hops. minimal. served in optimal condition and very fresh. this is a micro beer trying to go macro, ala wellington trail head. not in any way bad but still far from good. THX FOR THE FRESH SAMPLE CASTLE ON KING!! YOU WILL BE MISSED!!!!!!!

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 On tap at the Woolwich Arms in Guelph The aroma was funky honey pours a pale ambernot much head or lacing The taste was fairly mild and i am unsure whether the keg was old or not so this one will need to be revisited at some point Ok tasting number two wow what a difference 330ml bottle from the brewery courtesy of Lisa Pours a orangey amber with a small white head The aroma is awesome for pilsner Honey and malts The taste has that familiarity of F & M about it Honey and I don’t know but wow is it good one of the best pilsners I have ever had
