I thought that this beer was mediocre at best. Obviously mainstream oriented. Faint hop bite to the body, but not a lot in the way of aroma or any kind of distinguishing characters. On par with something like Molson Export.

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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2005
draught. very light, golden (almost white) body with a small white head. light subtle grass aroma...nothing else. this is really bland and uninteresting - seems to be a trend this evening. light grassy hops also some astringent sweet grains. slight sour notes in the finish. sub-par.

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a thin white head. Aroma: Starts odd with a sweet nutty note, then some pleasant cereals, decent grassy hops, toasted rice, a sort of wet ash note, a hint of fruitiness. Palate: Medium body and carbonation with a bit of the characteristic Pils smoothness. Flav.: Grainy, cereals, cooked cereal, a bit of grassy hops, a little straw, a little cardboard, a touch of vague fruitiness; dry with a little bitterness and a pleasant biscuit malt finish that is a hint metallic.

Drinkable but misses the mark stylistically and comes off a bit bland.

bottle. Poured slightly hazy and straw coloured with a thin white head. Lightly citrus, grassy hop aroma.Light, crisp, tight bubbled carbonation, dry mouthfeel. Kinda flat grassy flavour with a peppery dryness.

disappointing, tastes almost exactly like blue, pours light color and tastes pretty cheap

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Thanks to Joey Capps. Not much of an aroma - some sweet cereal. Overy sweet and herbal. Reminds 40’s purchased from the corner store.

lagerette (30) - - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours light golden in colour, with white head and little lacing. Aroma of malt and faint citrus. Taste somewhat sweet from malt, with very little bitterness from hops. Sweeter than expected for a pilsener. The aroma seems to be mostly from the malts. Medium carbonation, not an exceptional pilsener

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2005
Pours straw coloured with no head. Off aroma of grass and grain. Taste is some weird mixture of watered down malt and herbs.
