473ml can from the Muskoka Tasters 5 Pack purchased at the LCBO. AP light golden, just a touch deeper then straw, fluffy white head, poor retention, minimal lace, over carbonated AR some soft hop notes, touch of 2 row, mostly floral FL very clean, minimal malt body but sufficient hopping both in flavour and bitterness PA easy drinking and just interesting enough to be good OV id have a lot more respect for this brewer if they had brewed this to 4.1% and labeled it Pilsner instead of making it 4% and labeling it Pilsner Light, is shows that this craft brewer isnt targeting a craft market but rather making premium beer meant for suits as they sit in their muskoka chairs on the docks of their million dollar cottages

473 mL can from LCBO, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Fruity, slightly perfumy malts, cereal/grain, decent for the ABV. Palate: Medium body and effervescence. Flav.: Similar to the nose with kinda weirdly fruity/perfumed malts, hints of slightly soapy hops that are also a little green and peppery; dry with some bitterness and a slightly mineral malt finish.

Not bad, I guess.

473 ml can - pours gold, deeper hued than I was expecting for a light pilsner. Thick head breaks apart and becomes a weak bubbly surface film, an unfortunate aspect I’ve found in all Muskoka’s beers. Aroma sweet malt and a surprising amount of hops - nothing insane, but pretty good for the ABV and style. Flavour is pretty nice, actually - cereally, grainy malts up front that give way to a medium hop bitterness at the back of the throat. Nothing earth-shattering, but better than expected, and it certainly will be a nice lawnmower/fishing beer. I’ll get this again, fresh, throughout the warmer days.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2010 473ml can. fresh ... pours a pale gold clear lager in the flute with a billowy 4 finger puffy white cap. fair retention and lacing. Aroma dominated by cereals, some light mustiness, sulphides from lager yeast. Clean smell. Moderate-light mouth feel, biscuity-bready malts up front, light hop balance clean bready finish where bittering hopping appears at the very end to add a bitter snap. Clean, malty, crisp when cold, no off tastes or smells. A fair lager but not very representative of the Pilsner genre...it hasn’t the floral Saaz aroma nor the light crisp herbal Saaz finish you expect from a pilsner...All I got was a boiler plate light lager with slightly over-boiled northern gold or nugget hops in it....it could have been called light lager and no one would notice. Light beers are not my choice anyway. I may drink this over a Bud or Coors but only if it’s offered free, don’t think I’d ever have occasion to buy this stuff. Disappointing.

Can from the brewery. A foamer, opening spritzed wide on my desk. The aroma consists of some cheese, some hops, and some sardine. Very light body with rising carbonation bubbles, and 2 inches or more of head. A tad below medium mouthfeel. Taste is sardine oil, moderate bitterness, drinkable really. Above average carbonation. A modest astringent aftertaste, but satisfying following a workout.
