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.

Ah what can be said about the only beer brewed by Molson thatís worth drinking. For starters despite what 99% of people think this beer is not called "Pilsner" it called "Old Style" this is a big pet peeve of mine even though i my self call it pil. For the low cost of 17 bucks for 12 bottles you get a great value, this beer is refreshing, clean tasting, matches your john deer hat, and you can get wasted for cheap. A other great quality of Pil is if you ever find your self with out a Halloween costume you can stuff all 12 bottles in your pockets and where the empty box on your head and walla your a retard with a box on your head true story happened to a friend of a friend of mine. But back to the beer, it just plain and simply is one of my most favorite beers to drink, Iím not sure if the memories i have of it or the taste I just find my way back to it when i donít feel like drinking the heavenly ales of monks. DRINK PIL IT IS GOOD DAMIT!!!!!!

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Poured a sickly, pale yellow body with a fizzy white head. Smells of funky hops, pilsner malt, cereal and a fair amount of adjunct cutting the malt. Taste is the same. Thin, body with overly aggressive carbonation. Fairly clean, mildly bitter finish. Overall a pretty bad beer whose only home should be a softball field on a hot summer day.

JRHBrew (366) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 1, 2009
The aroma is nice and sweet with very few typical Molson turds funking it up. The beer looks fairly impressive a curious deepness lies inside the pale straw color. The flavor disappoints somewhat. I didnít expect something fantastic, but I did expect better. Itís weak and cornier than I hoped. Balanced and drinkable but not intriguing in anyway.

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Typical pale lager, golden straw colour. very little head. Mild hops, with a slight bitter. Typical canadian pale lager, goof swale/ session beer. If your out west youíll end up having one, two, three...

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 Formerly Lethbridge Beer brewed by Fritz Sick in my town. Pours out of the can a pale clear yellow with a trace of white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, apples, corn, a little skunky hops, maybe a hint of spice. Tastes of cereal, corn, apples, a little spice from the hops. Ya know... this beer is not the best thing out there, but for a session beer it can pass.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2009
From the 355ml can. Thin white head, golden colour, sweet slightly skunky smell. Great flavor, and smooth taste, of hops. slightly bitter. Originally brewed in my home town. I think itís great!

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Pours a medium golden yellow. Aromas of skunky hops, corn, and a touch of bitterness. Flavor is bitter skunky with a cheerios like after taste.

mullet2007 (209) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Pours a perfectly clear yellow colour with a thin white head. There is no smell, functionally it is non-existant. Maybe the faintest hint of pilsner-ness, but not really anything worth mentioning. Flavour is very sweet. A tiny bit of hop bitterness present, but again, not worth writing home about. This beer is about what I’d expect from Molson, not really worth drinking.

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
Fresh aroma, little bit of fruit. Golden appearance. Sweet lager, not bitterness or decent flavour to be got from this. Very poor.

AaronBouchard (150) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2008
473 ml can. Pours the look of a standard micro with a nice plentiful head. First time East Coaster with Vitamin P. Typical aroma. Pleasnt light easy drinking taste all around. This really is a Western gem. A very solid Molson product. No complaints at all here. Tasty quality product. Good volume drinking beer. I wish we had them in more then 473ml cans here in Nova Scotia. PS Tron funk-in blow
