On the third night, I handed my sweetie a tall slender Pilsner. Perfectly poured. While holding it up and gazing either at it, or through it at me, she said softly, “you are so fine to me.” It was hard to tell if she meant to be heard. “Ambiguity, thy Name is Woman”, I nearly uttered. Whether she was speaking to me, or to the beer, it was merely semantics. The deal was sealed. I would make it my life”s work to make fine beer.

Hard crash on the hardtail put me back home much quicker than anticipated.Killer pour and everlasting head, bubbs. Super bright gold brew with messy lacing. Citrus and grassy, notable sweetness that fits well, quite fragrant. Fairly tasty and easy to drink with pleasant bitterness, solid grainy malts, faint citrus. Very tasty and malty with light grassiness thankfully. High rating because I haven’t had a pil in ages? Possible.

Bottle. Light hazy golden, white lace. Slightly mealy chewy malt base, good classic hops, a hint fruitiness. Very pleasant, a bit closer to an Export than a pils but nice.

A nice example of a light pilsner style. Pours light amber with haze. Slight bread aromas. Malt backbone with a nice touch of hops. A nice sipper.

Jaune pale avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme des céréales et un peu du malt pilsen. Le goût est d’abord un peu du malt et céréales, avec un amertume léger en finale (mais fort pour le style) avec un peu d’acidité.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy blond color with compact head. Nice aroma of hay and cereals. Dry buy soft mouthfeel; the malt flavor is quite crispy, with a good accent of hay and cereals, and a bready impression; correct bitterness with light grassy hops. Harmonious.
Fresh and satisfying. A good choice.

Pours straw gold with some head. Smells lightly of bread and grass. Very light and crisp taste, with subtle bitterness in the end. Possibly one of the cleanest tasting pilsners I’ve had.

Nice pilsner. Very clean and smooth. Pours straw yellow, nice fluffy head. Light smell , grass, fresh hay. Nice carbonation, not overpowering. Mellow taste, grassy. Very slight bitterness at the end. Just clean and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5433) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear pale yellow gold body with a nice tight bubbled fizzy white head. The nose is clean and bready with moderate fresh smelling noble hops. Extremely clean smelling and well lagered by what I can tell from the aroma. The flavor is spot on for my tastes. Great clean bready pils malt, perfect bright and snappy hops. Really nice Saaz flavor especially. Very clean finish. This was a great beer, one of the best beers I had on my day trip through Victoria. Right up there with my love for Prima, Pikeland, and Sunshine.

Very light aromas. Pours a light straw colour and is very light tasting. A vague palate and not one of the better pils on Vancouver Island.
