Lubiere (11589) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
A golden lager with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, grainy malt with light German hops, light sulfur. In mouth, a boring grainy malt with soapy qualities, faint corn and hops, so-so.

crossovert (10050) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2012
In abv this is not the same as others listen on this site. 500ml can. Rare gusher can. Not really sure why. It pours a standard gold with a bright industrial lager looking white head that leaves typical lacing. The smell is grainy with some orange. For an EPL it isn’t the worst. But where not talking a world-class pilsener here. The flavor is not the greatest. Very watery. There is a light pinch of noble hops with some orange and a faint bit of bitterness in the finish. Not super sure why this stuff gets imported other than it is a cheap beer.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
2012-07-21. Crisp yellow with a small white head. Flavour is mild, sweet grainy cereals, very light bitterness. Aroma is similarly mild, notes of sweet grains and light straw. Average to light bodied palate. Dull but relatively inoffensive. Can from the LCBO, 4.8%, Toronto

BVery (8692) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Clear pale gold pour with a white head. Grain and pale malts - not interesting but not gross either. Good for what it is.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Can [500ml]. Pours a bubbly gold with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grain, straw, vegetal notes, light grassy hops and some sugar. Watery flavour of grain, straw and very light grassy hops. Nothing foul or off in the flavour but there isn’t much flavour at all. Light to average bodied. Like I said, inoffensive but quite dull as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (6539) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - I pt .9 fl oz can. Pours a light-medium golden with a silkly snow white head - brief lacing. Patented saaz hop aroma, bit of skunk - but not off-putting. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some grassiness, a brief nutty back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Better than expected, and refreshing after a long drive.

Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light gold with a small head. Nose is junk white bread. Party beads. Taste is similar. Junky plastic and bread. Nasty. Light body, soft carb. Unpleasant.

TheBeerGod (5690) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Can. Thought this would go under one of the other two ratings. This is 4.8% ABV and shows Martens Pilsener in the logo and Premium Pilsener beneath it. Gold bodied with a tall foamy white head. Sweet and slightly don’t aroma with cereal grains and grassy notes. Taste is sweet malt corn syrup, cereal grains and light grassy hops. Body is light-medium and moderately carbonated. Finishes with more cereal grains, grassy hops and sweet mal notes.
