The only thing pilsner about this beer is the color. The malt is sweet. There is bitterness but it is unlike any other pilsner I’ve had. And the nose is almost paint like. Strange. Outside the Russian beers, this is the worst beer I’ve tried. I’m pouring out the other five cans.

As far as cheap beer goes, you could do a lot worse than Simpler Times Pilsner. The malt isn’t too skunky and the hops aren’t too weak. Still, if this beer is supposed to make me nostalgic for "simpler times," I’m unmoved. I’ll stick to the present. Some things shouldn’t be simple. I like my beer to have complexity.

Slightly sweet malty smell, taste is the same...sweet malt, no hops, no depth of anything but malt... Doesn’t really taste like a pilsner, bland and boring...slightly medicinal taste in there too

Nothing special here. This is not a German Pilsener. I don’t trust Minhas Craft Brewery with any of their beers.

Old rating. Yup, macro lager from Trader Joes…exactly what you expect. Something like 50 cents a beer. Corny, stale, some weird off funk. Tasted it with lager…almost exactly the same.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 Faint corn and malt aroma. Reddish and orange color.Mild malt grain taste with a light bitterness. Clean light finish.

The price is about right for this beer. Drinkable. If you just want a cheap beer buzz, this’ll work for you. I get a kick out of some of the snooty highbrow reviews for this one. Make it cold, and suck it down. Burp and smile. It’s just cheap beer! Hand me another...

355ml can. Slightly hazed gold pour, fizzy fairly quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is relatively low, some floral notes and spice. Flavor is odd, phenolic, watery, not a distinct malt character, maybe saaz hops but that might be a stretch. Not a great pils.

Can picked up from trader joe’s. Pours golden, minimal head. Sweet nothing, chalk. Medium body. Metallic finish.

Is there anything more simpler, than enjoying a beer while hanging around a fire with friends and family? That was the case here with this beer, and I didn’t even bother to pour it into a glass. Just wanted to enjoy it from the can, and it was decent. Price not coming into play here, it was a clean, slightly grassy beer with minimal offensiveness at cold temps. I’m sure if it warmed up it would be pretty awful. I enjoyed this one just a bit more than the lager. Good beer to hand out to those that just want "..a cold one".
