Can:   Translucent golden, little frothy white head, light lacing.   Soft dusty grassy nose.   Crisp grassiness up front, clean, very light sweetness.   If this is Organic I am surprised as its not grainy or soily.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very crisp and clean finish, grassy, malty, lightly hoppy, with just the right amount of sweetness to allow this beer to seem a little dry.   Really well put together, wow!

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Unfiltered straw coloured golden pour wearing a more than fair white head. From the looks, I already expect greatness. From the look on my face, I have been served. It’s a very clean pls malt nose that I encounter on the first whiff where hay and the softest breadiness are in fine equilibrium. Refreshing grassy, herbal and slightly spicy bitterness comes with the cleansing, crisp carbonation to provide the kind of finish I like: the one that tells you the next sip will always be welcome and will never be less tasty or interesting than the last one. Saturation just does not happen with that type of beer. Perfect sunny day lager, dry and straightforward. Unsurprisingly, I’m in total disagreement with the majority here. That’s one mighty fine lager, but perhaps not responding to the average wet dreams of a Portland visitor.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with small white head. The aroma is grass and wheat. Thin mouth, corn malt, grass, light bitterness, decent.

notalush (5316) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Tap at Hopworks - clear gold - a bit sweet forth style, but with a nice hop crispness to balance - pils malt is soft and clean - a bit of a honey finish, with a sligh peppery hop bit and mineral character on the end - decent.

onceblind (5307) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Clear pale gold under a big rocky white head. Bubbly with lots of floating carbonation. Aroma was standard lager blandness and cracker and dough. The flavor was nice and crisp and sweet with a pale cereal doughy tone and a semi sweet finish. Good enough, but not different enough from the big boys to justify it.

presario (4877) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2015 Have to re-rate. Kind of a staple now for the non-geek part of family gatherings. Big cans are a nice staple beer to have in the fridge. Sample tray. Gold. Grain and alcohol scent. Flavour is a little malt liquorish.

reebtogi (4739) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is fresh citrus and pine hops with some cereal grains. Taste is a modest pine and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a grainy malt sweetness. Light body with mild carbonation. A well done pilsener that is definitely worth checking out.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours pale clear yellow with an off-white head. The aroma has light graininess, pale malt and a touch of bread. It has a medium / light body with soft flowing carbonation. The flavor starts off grainy with pale malt, spiciness and grassy hops. The finish has a nice clean spicy saaz kick. Nice pils.
