DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
More of a decent American lager than a pilsner. Not so bad as such but just not as clean or defined as say Neustadt Lager. Certainly lacks hoppy detail for a pilsner, there is some bitterness but it lacks the floral dimensions. Not a go-back beer for me.

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.

Clear gold. White head. Light, mildly biscuity aroma. Light, grainy feel. Sweet, biscuity flavour w/ notes of wet cardboard & grassy hops.

slightly tart. crisp, nicely hopped. pleasing lager compared to what some ontario micros do.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - JUL 10, 2007
draft at bow and arrow in toronto. clear golden with white head, it has sour dough aroma with hint of grapefruit. it is a bit yeasty, but has a unique accent of blended olive and malt. pleasant to drink.

Cartoonkhaki (1252) - 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.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
Old rate. Bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy blonde with a thin white head. Aroma is honey, light cardboard. Flavour features a chalky malt with notes of honey, crisp german hops, and medium body. Reasonable for the style.

bottle. Poured slightly hazy and straw coloured with a thin white head. Lightly citrus, grassy hop aroma.Light, crisp, tight bubbled carbonation, dry mouthfeel. Kinda flat grassy flavour with a peppery dryness.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 Not bad, nothing spectacular, but enjoyable. Nice hops, with a decent pils malt backbone. It’s nice on a warm summer evening. Actually quite crisp and delicious when fresh as in keeping with the style. Nice cereal grain quality to it on tap, though this at times almost comes off like cherrio’s. Still, in another world compared to anything macro. A very well-done semi-local brew that I could drink boat-loads of over the summer, and is never a bad choice on tap, especially at places with nothing better.
