COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic European Style Pilsner 4.8% alc./vol. True to style in every regard, this authentic Czech-style Pilsner is truely unique in North America. The beer is brewed with an all imported Plisner malt, all Saaz hops and a true Czech yeast strain. The brewery uses only distilled water and remineralizes it to deliver an authentic taste every time. The bright golden pilsner is a full-bodied, refreshingly great tasting beer. It delivers a soft texture, complimented by the proper balance of malt and Saaz hops. Its flavour begins with a pleasing malty or bready taste but is sufficiently hopped to impart a dry bitter tang with a very clean finish. This is a very inviting beer that compliments many foods and has enough body to compliment even the heaviest of meals. This complex beer provides a more flavourful yet true to style option to some of the more popular imports. Consumers are quoted as saying "there is not a beer in Canada that tastes like King Pilsner", or "this beer tastes like the true Pilsners in Europe" King Pilsner is considered Ultra Premium because no expense is spared to produce this world-class beer. It is made with the best of ingredients, and most importantly the water is distilled and the mineral content adjusted to match the water table of the beers country of origin (in this case the Czech Republic). This provides a flavour profile that only the truest of Pilsners can match. These ingredients as well as King’s proprietary process delivers one of the best tasting beers in the world!

Bendrixian (988) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Slightly darker golden colour with a clear profile. Muted aroma, some dried hay and not much else in the nose. On the palate it is slightly sweet, has a hoppy finish and a weird mercaptan kinda butteryness.Not good.

Freaky_tiki (394) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours olive oil yellow with a skinny picket fence white cap. You get your typical pilsner, rebooted in Ontario, with a taste that reminds me of 100 last calls in a hundred mediocre pubs. Reviewer below me writes that this has "got a ton of hops" & I’m thinking we are not on the planet let alone the same beer. In one word this beer is ... Ok.

King Pilsner (the Candian King Brewery) This one only recently started showing up at local LCBOs. Very pale gold pour with a really clingy lacy head. Tons of carbonation. Smell is grassy and hoppy. Taste is unique. It’s got a ton of hops and grainyness as expedcted but there’s something bready and earthy there. A lot of depth for a Pilsner.

473 mL can. Pours golden with a tight white head that leaves a little lace. Bready and biscuity, hints of grass and floral notes. Subtly sweet with a refreshingly bitter finish. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. A great lager.

Alpha10 (266) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
2013/09/04 - Pours a yellow/orange gold colour with a small white that reduces quickly. Aroma is grass, cereal, metal and slight apples. Taste is similar to nose with a sharp and mildly hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, with low carbonation and a mildly drying finish. Somewhat bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours yellow gold with medium head that quickly dissipates. Weak hoppy aroma. Light flavor of hops and cereals with a clean finish. Nice Pilsner

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 For a Pilsner it is not bad. I mean i guess I am never going to find a Pilsner that scores really high for me as they just always lacking that extra taste. But when comparing Pilsner to another Pilsner it is one of the better ones.

Eructoblaster (2851) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle - 341ml. Bland blond body with a thin white foamy head. Boring malty/hoppy aroma with some light herbal and bready hints. Decent taste slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Ordinary.
