Cartoonkhaki (1231) - 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.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Pale gold colour. Very small head. Sweet candy aroma. Sour, tart, hoppy bitter, dry finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2002
Caramel aroma, golden, a small head. Sweet candied flavour, fairly smooth. A pleasant beer, didn’t seem like a pilsner though?

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2002
slightly tart. crisp, nicely hopped. pleasing lager compared to what some ontario micros do.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2002
I thought that this beer was mediocre at best. Obviously mainstream oriented. Faint hop bite to the body, but not a lot in the way of aroma or any kind of distinguishing characters. On par with something like Molson Export.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 20, 2001
Decent pilsner. Very light and cloudy colored. Sharply crisp and dry. An earthy/floral hop mix with some lemony rind hints as well. Overall a good drinking brew.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Ligh gold in color, white head and fine lace. Some malts noted at the start, some what sweet at the top and a bit of hops noticed at the fairly dry finish. Clean and fresh as a pilner should be, not bad for a non-dark beer, quite drinkable.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2000
light golden colour, well-hopped, crispy, dry - really not bad

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Stonehammer has suffered a lot lately. At one time a credible German pils, this now has a lighter body, a lot less hop and less malt. All round, it is no longer a pilsner, let alone a good one.
