Draught, National on 17th, Calgary. Very cloudy yellow, smells yeasty, tastes it, too. Soft body, mostly sweet, and overall malty but a bit bland. I won’t call it bad but I’m disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lovely grassy hops upfront, with a light herbal quality, and floral quality. Flavour is along the same lines, with grassy notes dominating. Fairly one-dimensional but that one dimension is very nice. Lots of bite on the finish. Very nice pils.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather weak beer, a little drinkable. Some spice, a little hops though muted. Freshly brought back by Josh from Montreal, but not very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Vices et Versa Montreal. 20oz Nonic Pint, $7. Pours cloudy, chill haze yellow gold. Minimal foam. Nose is sweet apple, yellow apple, lemon, pineapple. Taste is mildly soapy, medium sugar, yellow apple. Clean, semi soapy finish. No malt character, not too grassy hoppy either. That sort of kills the whole purpose of pils in my opinion. Still, it is drinkable just not a Top 50 pilsner like it currently stands.
