Bottle: Poured a dark yellow color pils with a nice bug bubbly white head with pretty good retention. Aroma of crisp hops and nice floral malt are very enjoyable. Taste is quite refreshing with some lightly sweet floral malt and a nice crisp hops finish. Body is a bit too thin and I would have appreciated more carbonation but this is still a very enjoyable pils.

Nothing wrong with this one at all. Good clean mouthfeel with a good typical pils bite.

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.

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.

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

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.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
Tasty and refreshing. On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Sparkling gold body accompanied by a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Flavour is sweet and more lagery than pilsnery. (Am I allowed to say lagery and pilserny?) Decent.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 341 ml bottle - pours pale greenish gold with delicate champagne-like effervessence and a fluffy white cap. Pretty nice Saaz aroma is balanced very nicely with a sweet malt backbone and some yeast. Taste much the same with a crisp, dry finish. Well-balanced. Good.

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
