Brewed right in the Canadian Rockies, Project 9 is a true Bavarian Pilsner with exceptional continental hop flavour that can only be achieved by a selection of fine noble hops including the Saaz variety. The use of Munich, Pilsner and Pale western Canadian malts and time honoured brewing methods produces a clean, crisp Bavarian Pilsner that is truly transcendent.

Draft at brewery. One of the best Fernie beers. Solid malt character and nice lingering bitterness. It’s very germanic and yum, nice to see in the lineup.

Kobold (33) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Appearance: Diluted honey thinly poured over bushel of wheat. Broken foam mosaic balanced between shattered tiles and dust.... Aroma: Gritty wheat and grain interspersed with orange rinds, peanuts noble hops. Airborne spice circles overhead on wafts of bubblegum... Taste: Lightly bitter grass gently folds in velvet gloves. A grocery store’s bulk section collage of grains, nuts and assorted musty earth pearls then emerge from the back of the palate. A few flecks of metallic rust return the movement to the dry ground....

Looks like a pilsner, tastes like a pilsner. Has a slight off sweet (?) aftertaste. Could definitely spend a summer day in the Canadian Rockies drinking this beer!

cmacklin (757) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
355ml can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Mild aroma of grass, grain and bread. Sweet flavour of grainy malt and grassy hops with a dry, clean, crisp, mildly bitter finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Pretty good as far as pilsners go. I was pleasantly surprised.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
Aroma is slightly spicy and wheaty. Nice pale gold pour with a decent fizzy white head. Nice mildly spicy flavours with wheat and cereal grains.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Yellow. Bubbly. Thin soft white head. A bit of a fruity nose. Dominant malt note and noticeable hops. A quick drink but not a the crisp aggressive classic.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours a clear yellowish gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pil malts, light toast, nobel hops and faint fruity esthers. Taste is a clean sweet pil malt profile, pilsner yeast esthers, spicy noble hops with a crisp and dry finish. Well balanced pilsner a d another hit for this great brewery.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
355 ml can from a Fernie Brewing 12-pack assortment, served in a shaker pint glass. Lovely golden hue supports a light golden head that leaves generous lace. Lively carbonation. Aroma of fresh, clean malt and citrusy hops; flavor is much the same, ending very cleanly and refreshingly. Light-bodied, as expected. This is a great example of a Canadian craft interpretation of a pilsner. Just fantastic.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of straw, cereal and grass. Flavour is fresh and clean, with notes of grass, straw and a little cereal. Very refreshing stuff, just not overly flavourful. Certainly better than the average rating suggest in my opinion.
