I dont claim to be an expert on pilsners, but i thought this one was good. Nice appearance - golden with a white head. Aroma was pleasant - a grainy malty nose. Mouthfeel was smooth but not overly crisp. Flavor was nice - malt, but not thick. Even some fruity stuff. All in all, good, but not mind-blowing. I’d drink it again.

Bottle best before 6-7-05 so I was three days too late!! Pours a golden color with no head formation to speak of. Aroma is a bit vegetal reminding me of stew for some reason, almost a meaty aroma??? Bay leaves?? Lighter bodied and decently carbonated. Lightly malty flavors blend with a spicey, sharp hoppiness that dries out just enough to make this beer tolerable. There are many other Pilseners worth seeking out.

Clear golden colour with a respectable white head. Fresh aroma of bready malt, grassy hops, and fruity notes. Fruit comes through in the flavour as well - mainly peach and apricot - and the finish is very well hopped. Very well-made, well-balanced, and refreshing, it stands out as something a little different amongst the plethora of interchangable Euro-lagers at the LCBO.

Best before May, 2005. From a 500 ml bottle. Pale golden colour, thick fluffy white head. Aroma shows pale malt and some nice grassy hops. Flavour is well balanced, nice pale malt, a touch of caramel, grassy and floral hop flavour. Hops are more assertive than I expected. Nice hoppy finish. This bottle was a nice surprise.

Another sad offering from Poland via LCBO. It was really ok, for first time dortmunder, not really bready as it should be. Slightly less clear as I expected.

Bottle best before 11-06-2005 drank on 28-2-2005: Clear yellow with a thin white head, lemon and flowers in the aroma, with a touch of bready malts, starts and ends very lightly bitter with a crisp ending.

The first of 10 unremarkable east block import pilsners I’m tasting from the LCBO. This one pours a light gold with a smallish white cap that does not last but stays as a durable surface lace. Aromas of sweet boiled grains some light fruit smells and some veggies. Rounded, malty, lightly hopped but all through the drink and in the fast semi dry finish, there is this wierd vegital taste that won’t leave...like water someone boiled some sweet peas in...Drinkable, wierd taste but forgetable...not in the same league with the premium Czech Pisners.

This one surprised me. Very clean, fruity malts with bubblegum notes towards the end. Light perle hops to balance. Nice.
