JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2003
A yellow, headless brew with sweet pilsner aromas of cereal, cut grass and malt. The thin and almost flavourless front and middle leads to a woody, bitter finish, and boasts refreshing qualities that bring to mind a mixed greens salad sans dressing. Light carbonation, coupled with a humid, hazy afternoon helps get this beer down in a hurry. The finish would turn off the swill-swilling masses, so you could haul a six-pack to the pool and feel confident in finishing what you’ve started.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2008
341ml bottle, 5% a/v From the bottle, pours a very light, almost champagne/straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malty, with hints at wheat, spice, and straw. The taste of the beer is a nice clean pils, a bit fruity, a little bit spicy on the finish, very nice flavour. Only problem is this beer is very watery.. it has a nice flavour, but theres just not enough of it.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2006
Light blonde looks like any other pilsener, but has a reasonably complex and full flavour. Some malt and a nice refreshing finish.

Deep golden color with frothey white head. Clean, slightly grassy hop aroma and some biscuit. Flavor is crisp, with a hint of malty sweetness finishing with the mild hoppy bite. Yum

Pours straw coloured with no head. Off aroma of grass and grain. Taste is some weird mixture of watered down malt and herbs.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
341 refrigerated bottle bought at the Guelph LCBO. Pours clear yellow with a small frothy disappointing white head. aroma of straw reminds me of a standard pilsner. not very malty and somewhat dry but minimal bitterness. Fairly thin and nothing special. This is most certainly not F&M’s best.

Raistlin (282) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
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. Went on a bit of a pilsner tasting rampage.

Drank this one weekend at the cottage alongside JR Brickman’s Pilsener and this was by far superior. Very fruity floral hop aroma and flavor. A little on the sweet side keeping the finish from all it could be. Cheers!
