COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This continental lager has a deep golden hue, a giant rocky white head and a malty sweet nose. The first taste is sweet, but leads to a dry, hoppy bitter finish in the German Style. Mill Street Organic Pilsner is an excellent accompaniment to food or an excellent thirst quencher on its own.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Draught at brewpub. Not sure if this is the organic version...Mostly clear pure golden with aerated white head. Hops in aroma are promising a lot. Not pronounced but totally fresh. Hops! Hops! Yay! Refreshing! Bitter aftertaste over a soft, solid fresh grain body. A really nice (and hoppy!) pils. RERATE: is not what it was. Too sweet and under hopped. Dull and sad.

Objectively speaking: A bland take on a great style.
I like: Clean, but…
I dislike: Completely lacking the hop punch, the malt intricacies or the freshness of the good examples. Nuance-less generic blond lager which aims at the masses with its generic Bio tag.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy blonde yellow with a medium white head. Has a great Saaz aroma. Reminds me of an Urquell. Incredible bolus of hop bitterness up front, then the beer just whimpers away. Very authentic and true to style.

Overall, this beer is a disappointing experience. It came, on draft, with no head and not appearing significanlty different than a glass of Allen’s apple juice. No, head and very little carbonation. Sleeman clear was also on tap that night and I might as well have ordered that. The flavor was faint...a slightly beery taste and that’s it.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Great pils, loads of floral hops, and some great grainy, bready malts. Ecellent example of the style.

On tap at the brewery. Typical golden colour and general grain/cereal aroma. The flavour is the real kicker, with amazing vinyl bitterness throughout the flavour cycle, some skunk and a hint of apricot fighting to be noticed behind that blanket of bitternesss. Really refreshing and an excellent palate cleanser. A good summertime sipper.

growler from the brewery. pale golden colour with a nice fluffy head. sweet malt and floral hops on the nose. Malt flavor to start followed by nice hop bitterness to finish it out. a good pilsner, wish it was more widely available.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 On tap at the brewpub - came a rich gold with a large white head. Not much in the aroma, some sweet malts and some grassiness. Taste is wonderful, and after the faint aroma, a revelation - sweet malt to start, quickly followed by a dry crisp hop bite, and a smooth finish that is mildly bitter. I was surprised by the amount of hops in this one - really reminiscent of the better Euro-pils offerings available in Ontario (Urquell, Czechvar). Fresh, highly drinkable and very tasty. Note - this is NOT available in bottles, and anyone who mentions a bottle in their review is in fact reviewing the Organic LAGER (available in the small bottles), a different beer than this one, with its own seperate listing.
