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.

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.

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.

Enjoyed at Hard Luck Bar in Toronto, ON while my band was playing. Didn’t take tasting notes, didn’t need to...below average lager that did the trick for the night. Say no more.

Ma blonde avait le goût d’une bière, la veille de Noël, mais je n’avait que des trucs (trop) fort (pour elle). Je cours au dépanneur du coin chercher quelque chose qui va lui plaire. En direction de la caisse, j’aperçois du coin de l’œil, cette canette qui me séduit de par son look. Ça semblait évident que ce n’était pas la mer à boire, mais un "coteux" c’t’un "coteux". Alors, elle est aussi belle en dedans. Sa mousse est immaculée, qui est entretenue par de fines bulles. Un nez générique de malt, de sirop de maïs et d’herbes fraîches. Un goût typique de lager commerciale; de grain et de foin avec une sensation franchement rafraîchissante. L’aspect sucré se mêle à l’aspect minéral. Une bière de camping. (ou de canot-camping) (1693-251215)

Ça sent et ça goûte cheap. Malt, maïs, pain. Très aqueuse. Micro amertume. Bière de mononc’ buvable, sans plus. Just giv’er!
