COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Pilsner we have not changed since our beer was 1st brewed in 1926. Why? Itís right there on the bottleÖ. "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 thatís 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.

Golden yellow pour with small head. Aroma of corn and grain. Nice crisp taste with good carbonation. Not much for flavour but very drinkable.

Very good as the name suggest "old style pilsner beer." Crisp flavour, good amount of aroma and nice golden appearance. Very easy to drink. Could use a little more flavour though

Strangebrewer (1168) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2015 bottle. Poured clear amber with a thin head. Plain grainy aroma. Light body, crisp carbonation, macro mouthfeel. Flavour is mostly generic corn grain, light pale malt, faint bitterness. Not much to this brew, another macro with good advertising.

Lagerboy (1932) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2011
Smells like sewage water, but doesnít go down half bad out of an ice cold can on a hot day. Like most Industrial Swill, no emphasis on malts or hops, itís all sweet corn, thatís it. Value priced for you lagerboys with little money and no tastebuds.

I have to agree with the most recent eaters. This is not as bad as. Expected. I haven had one n a while and could see drinking a few on a hot day

Listen up you beer snobs with your cask-aged ales and such. I love old style pilly! But youíre all sorta right. It stinks, itís colour is off-putting, and the flavours donít dance on the palate as some of you fairies would prefer. But hear ye, this beer is good. You can put íem back with little effort and they donít taste bad (in fact they donít taste much at all... beside the point). Refreshing, smooth, and the most decent tasting of the cheap stuff. So to every man who enjoys this stuff and has maybe taken a tongue lashing from a beer snob, I salute you. This is not a beer you only have one of. And even if itís not the best according to the "experienced beer drinker", I will never be ashamed to love it. Drinkability and refreshment deserve a lot more credit. So is it a pint of the finest heavy stout or a can of ice cold old style? You tell me after a day in the hot sun.

I rated this beer high simply because I love to have it whenever I can get my hands on it. I just love doing shot guns with Terry and Deaner.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with an above average white head. Aromas of barley, hops and malts. Taste is crisp, a good blend of the sweeter malt and the bitter hop/wheat. A very nice mass brewed Pil.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 This beer always appears at house parties and it screams "too cheap to buy something that doesnít taste like crap" to whomever bought it. Sour and foul, a lot like urine, way too yellow even for a Pils. Naturally these should be "shotgunned" rather than poured in a glass to enjoy the proper experience! 3/1/3/2/4 Re-rate October 29, 2015: Itís been at least a decade and a half since I tried this one, so itís time for a re-rate of this ever-present pilsner in the west of Canada. Famously featured in the Fubar films, this is a regional staple for better or worse, with fine can art that makes you really think like youíre back in Germany.... or youíre stuck in a cheap velvet painting of what Germany should look like (sans refugees and all the rest). Poured warm into a glass thereís this bubbly-type white stuff that I suppose is mean to look like head but disappears too fast to really pontificate on it - thereís a boring yellow colour and more carbonation than a 7-Up with a pack of Tums thrown in it. The aroma is metal and sugar with a hint of lemon. Flavour is metal and cardboard with a tangy citrus finish. Really thin on the mouth, no texture at all. This is in fact bad stuff, far worse than I remember, perhaps thatís my palate maturing, or perhaps this stuff always sucked and I had memories of rednecks punching each other out to boost the flavour.
