Bottle courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a spare white head. Mild aroma and flavour has a nice blend of sweet malt, grain and light hops. I found it tasted better cold and got a little harsh as it warmed up. For a Canadian Pilsener this was a nice surprise, it’s refreshing and quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 [449-20070726] Tap @ Rebel House (Toronto, ON). Medium malty aroma with a hint of fruity apple. Clear, golden orange body with a quick white creamy head. Medium hoppy flavour has toasted malt. Medium body. Nice blend if a little boring. (6/2/7/3/11) 2.9

[620B-20070916] Sample @ Feast of Fields (Hillsburgh, ON). Floral yeast aroma, like sweet mango. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity yeast continues in flavour. Light body. Still quite nice. (6/2/7/3/12) 3.0

[3383B-20100924] Cask. Mild ginger spice aroma has some odd plastic chinese noodles. Slightly hazy, light orange yellow body with a long-lasting bubbly white head. Kind of bland noodles. Medium body. Despite the odd notes, it does have balance and is fairly drinkable. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2
(FFOB 2010 @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)

matt7215 (2161) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2008
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!!!!!!!

Earlier Rating: 4/5/2008 Total Score: 2.4
Bottle - light orange with some good carbonation, light white head. Grassy hay aroma, some hops too. Fairly grass and hop flavour, some dryness there too, I had it at a friends party, handy and enjoyable for such occasions

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.

solidfunk (3678) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Actually has a slightly fruity smell to it. A little raw wheat and a little apple sweetness. Taste is crisp, even a little bitter. Pours blond. No head. High carbonation. Aftertaste pretty much zilch but for a little bitterness. Really not bad for style. Tap at volos.

shaynsawchuk (435) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
341 mL bottle. Pours gold with a lacy white cap. Grainy malt with straw and toasty barley. Lightly sweet without as much bitterness as I expect for the style. A hint of herb like hop. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation.
