Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow in glass, very little head. Slight hops and sweetness in aroma. Well carbonated, light tingly mouthfeel. Buttery taste - the dominant flavour in my mind, which I rarely can pick out. Hops come in at he end. In between there is a lot of attempted flavour going on, but I find it unbalanced and overly sweet. This made it not quenching or refreshing or even enjoyable on a flavour level. I thought it was a pretty interesting interpretation of a pils, certainly unique o Ontario, and I will try it again as I like this brewery and their efforts and this is getting some very positive reviews. Just not from me I guess.

GregClow (2901) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle - thanks to tupalev. Clear, bright light gold colour with a small, fluffy white head. Fresh aroma of bready malt, citrus and grassy hops. Crisp mouthfeel. Perfectly balanced flavour of sweet (but not too sweet) malt, fruit notes, and herbal/grassy hops. Dry, refreshing finish. Really nice stuff!

Earlier Rating: 4/5/2008 Total Score: 2.4
Bottle - light orange with some good carbonation, light white head. Grassy hay aroma, some hops too. Fairly grass and hop flavour, some dryness there too, I had it at a friends party, handy and enjoyable for such occasions

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.

pintbypint (2646) - 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.

Spab (2452) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear, bright yellow/gold with small white head. Mild aroma of grass, honey and bread. Flavour is a plesant mix of grains and grass with a nice honey sweetness. Fairly light body. Nothing spectacular but pleasant.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Thanks to Joey Capps. Not much of an aroma - some sweet cereal. Overy sweet and herbal. Reminds 40’s purchased from the corner store.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
disappointing, tastes almost exactly like blue, pours light color and tastes pretty cheap

radiomgb (2262) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Pale gold colour. Very small head. Sweet candy aroma. Sour, tart, hoppy bitter, dry finish.

mds (2221) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2005
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.
