Crockett (1067) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pale straw and hazy. Tiny head. Minimal lemony wheat aroma. Mild yeasts and apricot. Minerals. Doesn’t look lagered. Some caramel in the finish. Bland.

Tessic (1027) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2006
This pilsner poured a really light yellow colour with a short lived bright white head. To the nose at first came a citrusy wine scent with a little cider thrown in. First sip was hoppy with a imediate bite of hops then a little corn syrup and citrus towards the end. I could also taste a little smoke thrown in. The palate was a lingering hoppyness that lasted quite a while.

I’m always chasing rainbows. In this case, the rainbow is a locally made pilsner that doesn’t suck. Yes, pilsner, that oh so unhip beer style that moustache waxers sneer at. I like ’em when I can find a good one -- which is rare. This one is better than expected, especially considering some of the dismissive reviews below. Pretty decent arc of the pilsner experience here: crisp, somewhat flowery hops, with that swishy absorbic acid like flush in the finish. Better than Creemore & King offerings. Still, doesn’t come close to the Victory Prima Pils that I was able to enjoy in the States. Still chasing rainbows.

Hammy78 (953) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
Draught at "The Winking Judge" Hamilton Ontario. Pours a colden yellow colour, white head. Pretty basic aroma as well as taste. Didn’t mind it, but not really my cup of tea.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 20, 2001
Decent pilsner. Very light and cloudy colored. Sharply crisp and dry. An earthy/floral hop mix with some lemony rind hints as well. Overall a good drinking brew.

MarkoR (869) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at The Loop, in Toronto. Hazy golden colour with medium white head. Aroma is fruity, with decent hops. A refreshing beer without being the best out there.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Golden wheat yellow, thick head with heavy lacing. Slightly skunky scent. Very heavy carbonation. Mellow citrus/fuit tastes with a warm aftertaste. A great Session beer.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 29, 2003
This is a very ordinary beer in all respects. Very middle of the road aroma, some bits of sweetness. Palate is a little dry. Not exactly a good buy for me.
