2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that does leave a little lacing. Aroma is slightly grainy with some grassy notes as well. Taste is a light malty sweetness with a mild hop bitterness that finishes quite harsh. Overall, just another mediocre lager style brew that is nothing special.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from trade.
Pours a pale gold spritzy lager with a smallish cap in the glass. Cap retention not great but does lace the glass.
Faint nose on this some boiled grains not much else.
Tastes pretty much like it smells, kind of bland, thin malts clean hops show in the finish, clean but bland, not what I look for in a pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy gold color. Smelled malty and sweet. Flavor was not as bitter as you would expect for a "pilsener" but in the end this was very drinkable. Tasted more like a German lager than a pilsner, but is was very quaffable.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy beige/dull dark straw sort of colour. Grainy, creamed corn aroma with doughy overtones. The flavour is doughy, lightly sweaty, with more creamed corn and a bit of footiness. Low carbonation. Poor attempt - misses at being a mainstream lager and misses at being a craft beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (thanks to piscator34 for the trade). Corn/barley malt aroma. Medium golden color with small head. Corn malt flavor with light hops. This seems more like a pale lager than a pilsner to me - not bad but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lots o’ carbonation, but not too flavourful. Good beer to have with a meal though. Could become a standard in the fridge.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Medium gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Some sulfur aromas mixed in with a bit of malt. The dominant flavor is the Fort Garry house malt, which has a cookie dough quality to it. There’s a strange somewhat bittering green quality as well, which doesn’t really seem like hops. Except for the colour, this beer is not even close to what a pilsner should be. Would it kill these guys to use some aroma hops?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled at the Matheson open house last night. Standard pils pour....very light translucent gold color...small whitish head. Light grassy aroma, flavor is more of the same but maybe with a light malt/hop mix in there. Hard to say. Bitter finish arrives quickly as I chug the rest to move on to something better.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Kind of waterey & thin for a pilsener. Almost instantly headless with lazy carbonation, this golden drink has a soft, sweet grassy aroma. The flavor is a mild malt sweetness and a dusting of hop bitterness. The finish is, well... wet.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Light clear gold colour with thin white head. Pretty much no aroma. Flavour-wise a little bit of a surprise. Lite sweetness and a little hop finish. Overall pretty thin, but clean.
