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.

Tessic (918) - Brantford, Ontario, - 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.

Can @ Splitz Burger, Whistler. Light, pale, clean and crisp. We'll take it I guess... Extra points for the can.

ametras (677) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
473ml can. Clear pale gold with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are pale malts, corn, honey, citrus and grass with floral notes. Light body, fizzy carbonation, thin texture.

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Bready, cereal aromas. More hop bite than most mass produced beers, however still subtle. Light bodied, thin, longer finish than others of the style. Big carbonation, unique.

fullers (268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, Silver Dollar, Spadina Ave. Boring beer. More amber than yellow, thin head. Slightly hoppy aroma. Strongly carbonated, thin palate. Hops and corn. Maybe a fall back on a hot summer night.

Eructoblaster (3292) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Can - 473ml. Boring pale blond body with very heavy carbonation and a thin white creamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with some herbal and corny hints. Taste is watery and carbonation is agressive on the tongue. Some timid Saaz hops and corny flavors are noticeable. Ends with a short herbal finish. Probably one of Molson’s most drinkable products.

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 (944) - - 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.

cmacklin (363) - 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.
