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.

Vitamin P! how did I rate 180 beers before this one?!?!? Smells skunky but only while the head remains (not long) then it doesn’t really smell at all. Or maybe I drank some and just can’t smell it now. I remember this is particularly stinky beer when others are drinking it and your not... Clear and yellowish, not much colour, head only on pour, not much lacing. This one is actually better out of the bottle than in a glass. Clear and ’crisp’, not much for palate. Extra points for being the best domestic macro-brew, and a part of many wild evenings...

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2009
Can shared with the gang at ’WaterlooWeekend Oct.’09’ -- c/o tupalev. Pours a clear pale gold with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma: Yuck, totally vegetal. Flavour: Geez this is crap! Watery vegetal flavour along with grass and grain. Light bodied. Worst beer of the night, by a long shot.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle courtesy of jdubFL. Pours a clear yellow color with no head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of honey, grass, wheat, yeast, light bread. Flavor is about the same--very light in aroma and flavor. Light body with virtually no finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6834) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Big ole thanks to jdubFL for this tasty pale treat. Pours clear gold with a white head requiring quick attention to see it before it fades away. The aroma is grains, honey, floral hops and overall smells overly sweet. The taste is much the same with a pleasing level of graininess welling up in the middle of a sack full of sweet malts and sweet floral hops. It tries to dry out into the finish but it comes up short.

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2009
2009-10-24. Pale yellow body with a small white head. Odd aroma, pale malts, something strange. Flavour of cardboard, but not really oxidation, washed out dilute pale malts. Astringent light bitterness. Rough, thin, poor. The only reason to drink this is if you are little OCD about collecting Canadian beers, which apparently I am, for better or for worse.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
341 ml bottle sampled at Fireside Pub, Regina, SK, 6/25/08. Pale golden colour with a small quickly diminishing bubbly head. Faint apple, grainy, and unfermented wort aroma with flavour to match. Light to medium bodied, on the flat side. Just sort of odd, really.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2009
(can). shared =at October 2009 WaterlooWeekend. Clear light gold, oily-looking and still, small white head. Pils? Smells like cheap apple juice and dry wildflowers - undertone of corn. Tastes like apple cores and paper. Watery, dry, slightly harsh - the best thing about this is the can design. Cheap, sugary, harsh, watery Canadian shitbeer.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Um, jdubfl brought this, I guess I should thank him. Pours clear gold with (s)white head. Nose is light malt, corn, corn syrup, fizz, and boringness. Flavor is same with weak lager finish. Why? Why? Great beer for people you don’t like.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle. Poured a light golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of a lemon scented disinfectant. Body is very thin with a watery mouth feel. Very little discernable flavor, light grain and cardboard notes. This beer would pair perfectly with the drain in the kitchen sink.
