Lubiere (9770) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2009
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.

Thanks to geth_in_beer for this one. Bright amber-gold beer with a large white head. Fairly fatty malt aroma with a bit of honey and light dustiness. A bit of floral/noble hop aroma. Thinnish body with a nice flinty bitterness. It’s not a great example, but it’s decent. Needs a whole lot more hops to be a true BoPils.

2008-06-12. Crisp golden yellow body with a foamy white head. (3+) Sweetish aroma of noble hops, quite floral, light grassy notes. Flavour has similar hops, floral, grassy - just a great fresh Saaz profile, and I am not even a big fan of Saaz hops. Light grass, mildly sweet pale malt base. Smooth average palate. A very solid pilsener! Not my favorite style, but this was very nice. Surprised how much I liked this. Bottle from OKBeer

Clear bright yellow gold. A great showcase of how lovely fresh Saaz hops can be. Full of fragrant floral character, clean and crisp lager base. Delicious!

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle (341ml). Courtesy of tupalev. Light amber pour, decent frothy white head, nice bubling and a touch of cloudiness. Floral and grainy, sweet and oddly fruity aroma. The taste - man that’s interesting - sharply bitter and I swear it tasted like only slightly sweetened rhubarb preserves - tart, acidic and fruity - man I like that!. Light body, sharply carbonated and plenty of lasting acidity, reminded me vaguely of a light ESB but with that huge bitter rhubarb. Long bitter aftertaste, but I like it!

blankboy (5970) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
Bottle (341ml) courtesy of jerc. Pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma’s slightly sugary sweet along with yeast, fruit, light saaz hops and bready malt -- not too shabby smelling for a Pilsener. Flavour of sweet bready malt, some fruit, grain and a light bitter finish -- good, could be a tad more flavourful though. Medium bodied. A pretty good version of the style.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
[1493-20080612] 341mL bottle. Straw-like grains aroma is a bit toasted. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy straw base flavour is bland. Light-medium body has a slight bitterness. Nice for the style.

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.

Tap offering via nova Scotia courtesy. Muddled sweet corn. Wet soggy breads. Soft herbal hop. Underwealming.

Gorbalev (2909) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle, thanks Big Red and K. Nice medium to dark yellow,, lots of streaming bubbles, small creamy white head. Nice aroma of Saaz hops and light malt. Taste follows, hops even more prominent, and a good amount of malt sweetness is balanced nicely. Body is medium, good frothy carbonated mouthfeel. All boxes checked here, just nothing exceptional, and maybe a tad too sweet. Otherwise, a good bohemian pils.
