Tasty and refreshing. On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Sparkling gold body accompanied by a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Flavour is sweet and more lagery than pilsnery. (Am I allowed to say lagery and pilserny?) Decent.

This is a very ordinary beer in all respects. Very middle of the road aroma, some bits of sweetness. Palate is a little dry. Not exactly a good buy for me.

CapFlu (4916) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2003
(Bottle) Medium, foamy, white head and a pale yellow body. Tiny sediment. Little carbonation. Nose of citrus, banana and spice. Nice texture, sweet corn and grassy flavour with bitter finish. Good.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2003
A yellow, headless brew with sweet pilsner aromas of cereal, cut grass and malt. The thin and almost flavourless front and middle leads to a woody, bitter finish, and boasts refreshing qualities that bring to mind a mixed greens salad sans dressing. Light carbonation, coupled with a humid, hazy afternoon helps get this beer down in a hurry. The finish would turn off the swill-swilling masses, so you could haul a six-pack to the pool and feel confident in finishing what you’ve started.

Better than most of Canadian lagers. It looked decent with rich gold color. Tasted nice, medium body. Some good aftertaste

Thin head, deep gold / copper twinge. Malty, aromatic hops nose (sweet-spicy). Sweet malty start, drying out with the same hops as the nose. Great mouthfeel. Citrus notes, banana (???). My favourite with Indian Curry.

It took me several tastings to really begin enjoying this pilsener. On tap, it often seemed a little too thin, of course, a pint glass is no vessel for a pilsener. Fresh samples from the bottle however made me appreciate the straight-forward single-malt character with cmoplementary bittering hops. The aroma seems to be mostly from the malts, but is pleasant - a little sweet and warm. The light golden colour, dense white head and medium carbonation are all right on for a traditional German pilsener.

Gold with white head. Light malt nose. Dry malt flavor, almost astringent

Cartoonkhaki (1223) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2002
Excellent pilsener. It’s great when someone local makes something good. Very golden in colour. Had a quickly dissipating head to it. Nothing major. A nice balanced beer that I would recomend.

Pale gold colour. Very small head. Sweet candy aroma. Sour, tart, hoppy bitter, dry finish.
