fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Draught at Volo, Toronto
Deep blond color, with compact head. The aroma is anonymous, a bit papery and yeasty. Dry mouthfeel, with the same profile. The bitterness is stronger than the average
Simple.

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2000
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.

Lubiere (10788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2006
Hazy blonde with a thin white head. Maderized honey aroma with light cardboard. In mouth, chalky malt with notes of honey, crisp german hops, and medium body.

Bov (10204) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2000
light golden colour, well-hopped, crispy, dry - really not bad

Sammy (9280) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - 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.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2006
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.

jercraigs (8294) - 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

mabel (7060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 [449-20070726] Tap @ Rebel House (Toronto, ON). Medium malty aroma with a hint of fruity apple. Clear, golden orange body with a quick white creamy head. Medium hoppy flavour has toasted malt. Medium body. Nice blend if a little boring. (6/2/7/3/11) 2.9

[620B-20070916] Sample @ Feast of Fields (Hillsburgh, ON). Floral yeast aroma, like sweet mango. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity yeast continues in flavour. Light body. Still quite nice. (6/2/7/3/12) 3.0

[3383B-20100924] Cask. Mild ginger spice aroma has some odd plastic chinese noodles. Slightly hazy, light orange yellow body with a long-lasting bubbly white head. Kind of bland noodles. Medium body. Despite the odd notes, it does have balance and is fairly drinkable. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2
(FFOB 2010 @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 22, 2003
Better than most of Canadian lagers. It looked decent with rich gold color. Tasted nice, medium body. Some good aftertaste
