3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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

A spicy pilsner with a very rich, full, and more than pleasant aroma. I found on my first encounter, that I was somewhat repelled by the bold flavour, but with the cold winter approaching, am becoming more fond of this robust brew.

on tap at the castle on king. pale yellow with some white head. some lacings. i neither paid for or enjoyed to majority of this half pint. aroma of grainy malt and floral noble hops. minimal. served in optimal condition and very fresh. this is a micro beer trying to go macro, ala wellington trail head. not in any way bad but still far from good. THX FOR THE FRESH SAMPLE CASTLE ON KING!! YOU WILL BE MISSED!!!!!!!
