MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This balanced Pilsener aligns cushy, lightly honeyed cereals with peppery hops, leading to a bittersweet finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty golden.
-This is a textbook North American-made Pils.
-The soft carbonation and higher-than-usual sweetness combine for an unauthentic texture.
-Peppery hops develop a nice bitterness.
-Drinkability is high.

Scopey (9349) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle in Parrsboro. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, rather doughy, grass, mild sweetness and cereal. The taste is crisp, bitter, minerals, grassy, white bread and just a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Good bitterness to it. Solid lager bier.

Belgrave (30) - Truro, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Gold colour with a lasting head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste starts hoppy but finishes malty. Long bitter aftertaste, but still a decent brew.

AgentAle (1111) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma is fragrant clove hop notes and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts with light honey and caramel notes. Fairly well balanced hoppiness but not overly complex. Some moderate creaminess. Appearance is a clear gold with a bubbly head that retains fairly well.

Aroma of bread with a trace of salt clear golden colour with a short lasting white head. Taste of minerals and a hint of malt. Watery feel with a metallic finish.

johnnnniee (2975) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from the source. Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a smallish but long lasting bubbly white head. Aromas of sweet bready pilsner malt with just a touch of toffee and some spicy floral hops to counter. The flavor is rich sweet bready and toffee pilsner malt with just enough spicy earthy hop flavor to balance nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice pilsner I enjoyed it.
