great tasting pilsner. Golden in colour with nice crisp taste. Definitely worth a try and a great price.

A commercial aimed pilsner that is still very drinkable. Great on a hot summers day but not going to set the world on fire. Lacks hop aromas and subsequent bitterness that is a trait of a good Pils. Price for 24 pack is ertainly an attraction at the over priced BC Liquor stores - man they have some archaic liquor laws in BC,Canada!

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Clear golden yellow, feeble foamy white head fades. Standard sweet lager malt aroma. Typical sweet bready grainy lager malt taste, no bitterness. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Inoffensive, clean and refreshing. Better than most CDN industrial swill. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cereal grains and mild grassy hops. Taste is light fruit and malty sweetness with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Light body and little carbonation. Typical macro lager brew.

Can, as Pacific Western Pilsner
Yellow color. No aroma; light flavor, corn and paper, low bitterness. Quite bad.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Single can purchased from Boulder Creek Liqour Store in Revelstoke, BC on 08/31/2011. Colour: Medum-light yellow with minimal head. Nose: Basic yeast and wheat. Small vanilla trace. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, light sour. A buttery elemant that is actually nice. Very smooth. Still run-of-the-mill though.

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Pours a clear yellow color with no aroma, maybe a slight corn smell. Taste is light and practically tasteless, its like drinking colored water.

Well, this looks like a big pile of crap, I wonder what’s inside? Poured from the suspiciously Corona-esque (there’s a great role model!) can, into my usual Maudite glass. Unsurprisingly the beer is pale gold, with little head retention, and poor lacing. Nose is green apples and clean grain. Honestly this defies my expectations, and smells not-terrible! So I am surprised so far, let’s go in for a taste: Damn that’s watery! Flavours of mineral water, sweet barley syrup, nothing really else. Profoundly dull, but not offensive.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 If you want a lager to get drunk on, this is your best bet in BC. Nearly half the price of a sixer of the macro lagers and about half the chemical taste (though still enough, mind you). Best to enjoy on the beach in the summer - if the cops confiscate it then you only lose a few bucks
