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.

Bottle (341ml). Thank you, tupalev!. Poured a clear bright gold with some post-pour bubbling and a decent foamy white head. Aroma mildly vegetal, some light sweet malt, very mildly fruity, a hint of fresh-mown timothy. Taste very mild - delicately hopped, cereal grainy without being coarse, still a hint of wheat or hay - very dry, starts slightly flowery sweet and finishes quickly and slightly bitter. Quite surprised - a great pale lager to have on hand for non-obsessive guests and still pleasant enough to enjoy on your patio.

Actually has a slightly fruity smell to it. A little raw wheat and a little apple sweetness. Taste is crisp, even a little bitter. Pours blond. No head. High carbonation. Aftertaste pretty much zilch but for a little bitterness. Really not bad for style. Tap at volos.

Boutip (5351) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2006
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.

typical grassy grainy nose. Flavour is much of the same. the finish is also grassy. the grassiness takes ovver, meh, not a fan.

probstblueribbon (3397) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a thin white head. Aroma: Starts odd with a sweet nutty note, then some pleasant cereals, decent grassy hops, toasted rice, a sort of wet ash note, a hint of fruitiness. Palate: Medium body and carbonation with a bit of the characteristic Pils smoothness. Flav.: Grainy, cereals, cooked cereal, a bit of grassy hops, a little straw, a little cardboard, a touch of vague fruitiness; dry with a little bitterness and a pleasant biscuit malt finish that is a hint metallic.

Drinkable but misses the mark stylistically and comes off a bit bland.

Caramel aroma, golden, a small head. Sweet candied flavour, fairly smooth. A pleasant beer, didn’t seem like a pilsner though?

pintbypint (3070) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
On tap at Phog Lounge, Windsor On. Golden pour. Creamy head, 1cm thick. Nice lacing. Light grain aroma, slight note of lemons. Citrus accented hops stand out in the flavour, grainy malts behind it. Light hop finish.
