3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ C’est What. Supposedly a new formulation? Scent is yeasty, some apple cider vinegar. Overly sweet up front, but a very long hoppy finish. Excellent lacing. A fine local example.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This pilsner poured a really light yellow colour with a short lived bright white head. To the nose at first came a citrusy wine scent with a little cider thrown in. First sip was hoppy with a imediate bite of hops then a little corn syrup and citrus towards the end. I could also taste a little smoke thrown in. The palate was a lingering hoppyness that lasted quite a while.

Golden wheat yellow, thick head with heavy lacing. Slightly skunky scent. Very heavy carbonation. Mellow citrus/fuit tastes with a warm aftertaste. A great Session beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
draught. very light, golden (almost white) body with a small white head. light subtle grass aroma...nothing else. this is really bland and uninteresting - seems to be a trend this evening. light grassy hops also some astringent sweet grains. slight sour notes in the finish. sub-par.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark yellow color pils with a nice bug bubbly white head with pretty good retention. Aroma of crisp hops and nice floral malt are very enjoyable. Taste is quite refreshing with some lightly sweet floral malt and a nice crisp hops finish. Body is a bit too thin and I would have appreciated more carbonation but this is still a very enjoyable pils.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a spare white head. Mild aroma and flavour has a nice blend of sweet malt, grain and light hops. I found it tasted better cold and got a little harsh as it warmed up. For a Canadian Pilsener this was a nice surprise, it’s refreshing and quite enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Any first impressions?
-A very pale, translucid, metallic yellow sports a thin film of head.
-Honeyed malt sweetness comprises most of the nose at first.
-Sweet grain envelops the palate along with prickly but scant bubbling.
-The silky malt structure produces a comfortable mouthfeel.
What if you dig deeper?
-A pleasant, gentle wooden hop bitterness rises in the back.
-Some sulphur notes build and take too much room in the flavor spectrum.
-Lactic notes accompany the sulphur in the nose as well, disproportionately.
-All in all, a decent pilsner which could sway the macro drinker towards a label change.
Bottle; no date.
