GregClow (3187) - 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!

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

Metalchopz (3076) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
First of two Ontario Pilsner tonight (the other being the Perth one). Pours a light golden colour with a white cap, almost creamy, long lasting and with some creamy lacing. Sweet malty nose with some bread notes and honey. A little hops, but more apparent in the taste. Decent bitterness and Saaz notes. This calms down the sweetness in the mouth. Good cereal malts overall. Refreshing, crisp and quite drinkable. Maybe a little too rich for a pilsner.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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.

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

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

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.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
341 mL bottle. I want to like this, but it’s not fermented properly or something. It’s too sweet, and has that corny kinda smell that some poorly made beers have. It’s no tun drinkable, but it’s not worth buying again.

disappointing, tastes almost exactly like blue, pours light color and tastes pretty cheap
