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.

Metaliic commercial lager. Famously appears in the film "Fubar". (Obviously) not a true plisner. Quite maltly, but not very hopped. Lacked balance. Thin bodied. Hay, straw hopping. Cabbage/corn undertones.

355mL can, pours a clear classic weak yellow colour. Nose of sweet hay. Flavour is pretty tasteless, sweetened beer water with a hint of metallic.

Pours a pale light colour with a white head. Mild aroma of breadiness. Taste is bland, but inoffensive. Watery finish with a hint of glassy bitterness.

355mL can, pours a clear piss yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out notes of hay and a touch of straw. Flavour is pretty tasteless, with straw, light hay and sweet cereal malts. A little skunk. Inoffensive, but pointless. No good, obviously.

Curiosity finally got the best of me. I have been on a kick for a while to find the best value beer. This ain’t it. Not even close. I have a pretty simple beer pallet...I like it or I don’t, but I have never until today poured a beer down the sink even when I don’t like it. I have never been so offended by a beer in my life. Aroma. No real sense of smell. It wasn’t skunky. Appearance. Poured nice golden yellow with a thick soapy head looked promising Taste. Started Bland like most cheep beer but then a flavour I can only describe as what I think turpentine would taste like is left behind when you swallow it.

George Carlin would have a field day with the name: "old style", but I digress. Aroma is mild, corny, some cereal malt, kind of musty - not really a fan. Appearance is pretty standard not-quite-pilsner lager, clear straw-yellow, scattered soapy head, less watery than your typical pale lager. Taste is mild, grainy, slightly sweet, mostly malt with little hop character. Not as musty as the aroma, but there’s a prominent metallic note in the finish. Way too much carbonation. Good grain presence makes this better than average for Molson, to be sure. While it’s nowhere close to "good", it’s easy to finish.

Wow, the design on the can shows some natives having their way of life destroyed by pilsner, -1 off appearance for being a bummer. That said it looks fizzy pale yellow, dirty smell of frozen peas, tastes like stale grain, a bit pissy. Pretty bad, watery AND metallic.

Had to grab this as soon as I saw it, I thought about shot gunning it like in the movie Fubar, but then how could I rate it. So I bought 2. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head that lasts and laces the glass. Some malt in the aroma but not much else. Taste is grain, sweet malt and hay. Has a bit of a tin aftertaste. All in all just not that good. Hoping shot gunning the 2nd one makes it taste better.

On tap. Tried as the only other alternative was Bud Lite Lime. Didn’t know there was still a market for kegs of this stuff. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas - nope. Flavors of semi sweet watery corn syrup and hints of grain. At least no cardboard. What an experience.

Moi aussi j’ai été attiré par le look de la cannette. Ça sent la levure lager , les céréales et le foin. Mais ça sent le commercial et le sirop de maïs. D’une limpidité remarquable, le liquide doré pâle développe une mousse épaisse et crémeuse qui persiste assez longtemps. L’effervescence et l’insipidité marquent l’entrée de bouche sur une finale légèrement herbacée et céréalière. On goûte pas mal le sirop de maïs et les adjuvants chimiques. Bière commerciale sans intérêt. À la limite du buvable.
