COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tribute to the German style of pilsner. A clear pale golden blonde body, almost fruity malts and pointly refined hops. Balanced and very drinkable Pils with great flavor.

Bottle thanks to matt7215. Pours an expected blonde with thick white head. Aroma strong of grass, hay, malt, and ever so slight hops. Flavor similar with the addition of some sweetness and a wheat flavor that I wasnít expecting. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

Bought from Grand River Brewery retail store. Poured from 500ml botlle. Poured light golden colour with small frothy head. Floral hops aroma, seemed sweet. Same with taste. Light sweetness with slight hops bitterness, but very little aftertaste. Very drinkable, and very good.

Golden pour with a fast fading head. The nose is slightly doughy with a little bit of soft noble hop aroma. Malts lean more Czech than German but are pretty nice regardless. Clean and fresh with a lingering malt sweetness on the back. Fresh and lively. It's pretty solid stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Draft at the BlackShire Pub in London ON Amber pour with a white clingy head thatís leaving plenty of lacing. Slightly bready nose. Wet and just slightly bitter mouth. Yeasty with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Just a touch fruity. Very drinkable. Best of the 4 beers I tried here at BlackShire which is a venue I strongly recommend to anyone in the London Area. The Chilli was awesome as well.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 White head and pale yellow brew with lively carbonation. The aroma is very yeasty/bready. There are some springlike, grassy notes. The taste is clean, some malt and bread. It would be easy to drink a lot of these.

Another beer that hits you with a waft of stink before you even take a sip. Taste has the tiniest hint of something, but it ainít good.

Light summery aroma of mild roast and soft yeast. Straw color, active white head. Somewhat tropical initial burst, very sweet like a candy necklace. Dries out quickly and finishes clean, scrubbed down to ready me for the next sip. Lemony as it warms.

500ml Bottle: Got in trade from Sammy; THANKS Sammy! Aroma of Pils malts, noble hops, herbs, lemon, and grains. Poured yellow in color with no head. Hazy. Sparkling. Many tiny particles throughout. Flavor is lightly bitter and highly vegetal. Tastes of Pils malts, vegetables, grains, and noble hops. Light to medium body. Lightly dry, slightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Vegetable, Pils malt, noble hop finish.

Tap, pours a golden colour, taste was so harsh, it was of a grainy bizarre taste, it tasted like it was unfinished or something, it was not pleasant to drink. I wouldnt not recommend this beer.
