Found a slightly metallic taste and that was it, the hops were’n’t up front and centre where I like them. The was it Brickman gives way to something bettere there has to be!

fhoublon (459) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée dans une LCBO de Ottawa. Dégustée le 21 août 2008. Bière blonde limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col épais et durable. Peu effervescente. Odeur de céréales, de sucre et de houblon. Très douce, assez sucrée, très amère en finale. Goût de céréales grillées. Supérieure aux pilsener commerciales génériques. Un peu mince, par contre.

Metalchopz (3078) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Originally rated June 2006. This Canadian pilsner pours a golden colour with a big creamy white head that has excellent retention and leaves real thick lacing. Active carbonation all-over the glass. The nose is rich with grainy and bready malt. Caramel is also present and mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Mild hop taste with some light caramel in the finish. The lace sticks the whole way down. A very nice pils which I would buy again.

Very forgettable Pilsner. Nothing would distinguish it from anything else.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Clear golden with white head. Some pale malt, some grassy hops, not terribly exciting yet. Soft mouthfeel with high but gentle carbonation. Sweet but clean with off-dry finish. A total yawn.

Oakes (15664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Golden colour. Very grassy hop with a hint of caramel. Really simple, gassy, and slightly grassy. Big yawn.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
(473ml bottle) Purchased at LCBO Rideau in Ottawa for $1.95. Pours a medium, white foamy head atop a deep amber body. Nose of grass and mild malt. Flavour is mildly hopped with some caramel malt and spice finishing the palate. Nothing special but not offensive for under $2.

[1552-20080727] 473mL can. Bit of straw in the aroma. Clear, yellow brown body with a quick white foam. Straw-like grain flavour is mostly bubbly and bland. Light body is a little astringent. Fair.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2008
One of the few Canadian beers I can say I thoroughly enjoyed. Tastes like any good German Pilsener you have had before. Recommended.

Barnabus (52) - Niagara, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2008
Large, fizzy, rapidly dimishing head with no lacing. A deep sparkling yellow colour. Smells of malt and grass. Medium body with a refreshingly clean feel. Average finish. A very refreshing beer that is a little complex.
