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.

RobBestwick (603) - Calgary, Alberta, - AUG 4, 2010
Bottled. Sweet aroma with hints of toffee. Bronze hue with a frothy head. Malty start which then becomes an intense hoppy bitterness through to the finish. Medium palate. Good pilsner.

Pours clear deep gold with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is pale bready malt, light grassy hops. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, long bitter finish. (3/5) Bottom of the barrel - last one here, on tap or in bottles, that I haven’t tried. A fairly authentic, German-tasting pilsener. Which is to say, fairly boring. Although it’s a little dark for the style, which is fine by me, that’s not really enough to rescue it from the doldrums of mediocrity. (10/20)

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, bière ultra raffraichissante mais qui n’a rien de vraiment exceptionnelle dans mes souvenirs de voyage.

Draft. Golden body with a thin white head. Mild aroma of malt, some hops. Mainly a light malt taste with a mildly bitter finish. Quite refreshing.

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pretty good for style. Nice crisp malt with some evident saaz hops. Pours golden brown, darker than average for style. Slightly fizzy carbonation. Good balance. Finishes a little bitter as well with some light candied malt. On tap at brewpub.

BreWedge (336) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
On tap @ Mill Street Pilsner. Pours a clear, dark gold with a small white head. Aroma was burnt toast or grain (my wife and I both at one point thought burnt hair), honey, biscuit. Bottom line, malt dominant. Taste was reflective of aroma in the toasty malts really come through. When coupled with some sweetness it reminds me a little bit of Honey Nut Cheerios. There’s a bit of of alcohol edge that balances the sweetness. Fairly light mouthfeel with a gentle bitter finish. I’m going against the grain (pun intended) on this one and will call this a very pleasant beer.

Reimer96 (1343) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
On tap at YYZ airport brew pub. Pours a clear dark golden color with a nice white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some lace. Smell is of sweet pale malt. Taste is a dry malt flavor with that distinct pilsner yeast flavor and a moderate smooth bitterness on the finish.

Draught at the brewpub
Golden color, creamy head. Light malt aroma. It has a quite good malt flavor, with light crispness too; I find the bitterness a bit too much here.
Tasty Pilsner.

Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Golden body with a thin white foamy/creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with bready hints. Taste is not bad but it is a bit too malty for a Pilsner. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Not bad.

reebtogi (4396) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2012
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lace. Aroma is light cereal grains and mild flowery hops. Taste is a bold malty sweetness followed by a mild hop bitterness. A little sweet for the style. Light to medium body and generous carbonation lead to a nice tingle on the palate. A decent pilsener style beer.
