3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL bottle, BS sixer. Can’t believe I found one less than 17 months past its expiry date! Pours a nice pale gold with a small white head. The aroma is pretty good, faded Saaz hops, dry and dusty with some decent pils malts in the background. Flavour features Saaz upfront, met with some sweet malts and a mildly peppery finish. Feels light but not too carbonated, which I appreciated. If I could get this fresh I would prefer it to King Brewery’s Pilsener. Decent rendition of the Czech pils variety. I should get out to Saskatoon sometime.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 11/06/2011. Colour: Medium yellow with hints of green and low white head. Nose: Surprisinly flowery, accompanying pine needles, sweet malt. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. A sweet blast then settles into growing sour barley that acts astringent and long on the finish. Not as complex as I’d hoped but quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich gold. Fairly carbonated from the bottle. Grassy, peppery, crabapple aroma. Flavourful pils. Hoppy, more of that grassy sour apple, bready. Hops linger. Fairly bold pilsner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lightly hazed blonde pils with a thick receding off white head, lightly lacing. In aroma, fresh grainy malt with faint Czech hopping. In mouth, a smooth clean crisp biscuit malt with grassy Czech hops, lightly lingering. This one was from Piscator (Dec 2009) and, although its attenuated, its still not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big czech hop aroma, light grass, and some good bready malts. Soft carb, good dose of czech hops in the flavor. The finish is crisp, and dry. A really decent pils, ilike the up front hops, not over powering, just perfect.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Slightly hazy light gold with a smallish frothy/creamy white head. Pleasant, slightly sweet aroma - grassy bitterness balanced against light honey; hint of apple. Taste follows, definite winesap sweetness, even more grassy bitterness - very fresh tasting, well done. Light body, light astringency, decent carbonation, and nice balanced grassy/fruity finish and linger. Solid stuff, quite different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Hazy golden color, small head. The aroma is very perfumy, not only malt, but also a peculiar citrusy fruitiness. Quite good malt body, with strong bitterness, rather resiny at the end, refreshing overall. Good.
