UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 341 ml bottle. pours golden yellow with a big pure white head. lots of tiny bubbles stream off the sides of the glass to keep that white head with you as you drink. aromas are crisp citris and a tiny bit of chewy breadish malt. taste is a little bakery sweetness with citris and some grassyness. medium body, very refreshing and drinkable. would be great with spicy dishes////////////////////////////quality at Gold Crown has really gone downhill in the last few years. the beer is still a serviceable pale lager when in good form, but some batches are simply god aweful. its a shame because back in 07/08 the beer pretty much defined what a craft north american pilsner could be

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 341ml bottle. Pours a nice gold with a medium white head. The aroma is not like a pilsner, but it is nice, with some delicious bready malts, sweet grains, characteristic of this brewery, and a touch of citrus hops. The flavour is initially nice malts, very tasty, then comes a wave of citrus hops, finishing off with some earthy tones and bready malts. The aftertaste is a nice blend of it all, with a fuller but medium mouthfeel. This is a solid beer, debatable if itís a pils or a pale, or w/e, but its incredibly fresh tasting and the price is ridiculously good. The more you have this beer the more you notice the pils elements; at the very least itís inbetween pils and pale, therefore a premium. The people who added these beers in the first place were incorrect, and perhaps a bit snobbish.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Bottled: Unpasturized and fresh from the brewery. Pour puts a standard looking commercial Pils in the glass..pale gold crystal clear...but this one has a rocky cap and this reduces to a nice lace and surface film. Aroma is not Pls..missing the floral bouquet...we get biscuit malt, lemon-cider and some grass on this ...like a helles. Moderate malts, medium-light body, peppery mouth feel, bready-cidery character. Starts with decent enough biscuity pils malts then some modest saaz hopping joins to balance givng a cidery effect mid palate...finish is crisp, clean and dry with a light biscuity after taste. A standard all malt pilsner with decent taste when fresh it can;t be beat and at the price at least as good a deal as Steam Whistle or Stone hammer pils.

Skinnyviking (8704) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2006
Draught. Small white but lasting head. Clear light green body though the bar maid clamed it was filtered. Weak hops aroma. More bitterness than expected.

Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Pale golden lager with a dissipating white head. Sweet biscuitty malt aroma with honey character. Crisp sweet malt with light german hops finish. Lighter bodied quaffer. Not a great beer, but honest. Bottle from Karl.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Sweet ceralish nose. Slight toast & end. Bitter finish. This is too sweet yet the hops arenít balanced.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
Unpasteurized and they warn you to keep it cool. Slightly better than average pils, with pleasant taste that could go anytime, particularly on a warm evening. Head was modest.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Clear straw colored, small white head. Aroma of cereal malts and a hint of cherry. Quite unremarkable, but no real off flavors to speak of.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2004
Soft, insistent sparkle. Fleeting bread & cider aroma. Light body. Light bready maltiness...almost a helles...certainly not a pilsner.
