341ml bottle. Lots of body and flavour in this pils. Like a better Labatt. Malts and hops were in a good balance. This was a pils was very much to my tastes.

On tap at Propeller in Halifax. Pours out a clear crisp light gold topped with a small head. Aroma was of bread malts, light spice, and some floral notes. Taste was pretty much the same a light crisp spice.

On tap at hotel restaurant in Truro NS. Good crisp brew here. Malts were sweet but in a good way. grainy nutmeg flavor, but with a nice hop finish. I enjoyed this one crisp and easy to drink but had body.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2010 up against the lagunitas pils. less expressive than the other brew. It seems more fruity upfront but that changed to a more nut like character. malted notes are in there as well. it is lighter styled. clean and crisp brew with ever so slight bitter finish.i find it nutty and pleasant. good carbonation. good summer brew!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden pils with a thick white head. A perfumey malt aroma, with light cinnamon and nutmeg notes. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with light mineral notes, crisp and smooth, a bit harsh and grainy. Medium bodied. On tap at Hart and Thistle, Oct. 12 2009.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle from Premier. Pours a clear gold with big carobnation bubbles and small fluffy white head. Grainy, grassy sweetness in the aroma. Sweet caramel/honey and bread in the flavour with the hops kicking in to give a somewhat bitter finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a gold color ale with a medium white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of medium sweet malt with some dry floral hops presence. Taste is also dominated by nice fresh medium sweet malt with a nice dry Saaz finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Refreshing and easily drinkable with maybe a tad too much malt which limit my consumption when I would be willing to drink more on a hot sumer day.

Draft on the waterfront with an improvised dinner. An off copper/gold. Thin diminishing wimpy head. This is more along the lined of an English bitter. It was so much so at the time I asked the server twice if they had mispoured it since their bitter tap was right next to the pilsener. I went so far as to ask for a taste of the bitter and it was nearly the same as the pilsener. Skip Skip skip it!
