COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Pilsner we have not changed since our beer was 1st brewed in 1926. Why? It’s right there on the bottle…. "old style". Those are more than just words on a beloved label. Being true to who we are has kept our drinkers loyal and kept Pilsner from being a fad. And that’s why our advertising, promotions and even our website have been done in the style of 1926- old style. Being true to who we are has kept our drinkers loyal and kept Pilsner form being a fad. The stagecoach on the label is not a band wagon..... the rabbit would not stand for it.

How bad can this be? Actually better than you think, but it still isn’t saying much. Pours honey yellow with foam that clumps & drifts. Taste is corn, some sugar, & a hint of diluted vegetable broth. Not really a pilsner, is it? You can slap that cheesy image on the can & call this beer old timey if you really wanna but it’s still slushy corn malt with a sprinkle of hops. Still ... May be the best bet in the Molson stable (I guess the Molson-Creemore stuff is a little better).

"i think i like the ice and Canadian a touch better, but this ain’t bad for pee either. nothing great, but it goes down nice with pizza or wings, and there is no offending aromas or tastes. just light malt, corny, a touch of hops...refreshing enough."

Johnsense (842) - - SEP 7, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Pale yellow pour, fairly large head that disappeared fast. Grassy and grainy aroma and taste, corn. Easy drinking, if nothing else. Probably the best macro in Ontario, which is like saying who your favourite Maple Leaf is. RERATE - had a fair bit fresher can, review ticked slightly upward.

AgentAle (741) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Aroma is a light graininess with notes of rice and corn adjuncts. Slight sulphur hints. Taste is light sweet malts and slight rice hints. Finishes dry abd slightly bitter. Appearance

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
355 ml can. Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grass. Flavour is pale malt with corn syrup. Light body with watery texture and soft carbonation. This stuff was so bad I actually poured most of it down the drain.

Papillon (379) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
355 mL Can. Straw-yellow body with a foamy head that settles to a film that wants to cling all over the sides of the glass. Aroma of light sweet malts, grains, corn, a pronounced earthy note, pungent hops, and a subtle innuendo of skunk. Flavor of light sweet malts, aftertaste of light malts, sweet corn, and a hint of corn husk, and a clean finish that comes with a hint of cream cheese; smooth and almost silky in the mouth. A nice light body makes it a summer picnic beer.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Can and what a can. I love all that horrible art work on, it reminds me of Old Dutch chip bags. Smells of corn and hay. Tastes pretty similar with light malts and even lighter hopping. Surprisingly never to metallic tasting. More body than most macros. It feels so innocent with that can, I would drink it again if the LC didnt stop carrying it.

Tessic (886) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
This pils poured a clear light yellow with a big bright white head. Scents include corn, eggs and cream. First swig was very watery with light malt flavours and a hint of hops. Finish is lightly bitter with a malty corn flavour lingering.

czar (4608) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
pours clear very pale yellow with a small white cap, little retention and no lacing per say. a surprising grainy maltiness - maybe almost a pils-only basis, although grape juice seeps through, sweetish lemon, bit of sulfur, herbal-grasssiness - tad bland, peppery, dusty and powdery notes, vanilla traces. moderate carbonation - slightly lacking, light body - slightly watery, relatively dry chalky-herbal-grassy finish. a pleasant macro surprise.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Draught at Darby’s Public House, Vancouver
Pale greenish-yellow color. dry, weak, a bit crispy, with rather low bitterness, and some sweeteners in the final.
Not offensive, just bland.
