I don’t like pilsners/lagers at the best of times. This sample was from a can and tasted metallic. Skunky notes overwhelmed the mild hop aroma and made for an unpleasant glass of beer. Half of this went into the compost.

Not my cup of beer. Oured pale golden yellow with a giant froth that dissipated to a foamy pond-scum covering. Some faint hops and a fresh floaral tone too. Non-descript flavours with a slightly sweet hop/malt finish Probably an OK european lager, but I won’t be searching it out.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Limpid pale gold body topped with a good frothy head. Average hoppy nose with some herbal hints. Taste is definitely hoppy, and has some bready notes. It ends with a nice and long hoppy finish. This is a good and refreshing lager that tastes something else than carbonated water.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2004
nice bit of clean and somewhat sweet aftertaste. Herbal character and would go with smoked foods in meal. A beer to be had on the colder side.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in a dimpled mug. Tasted at 8C. Appearance is light yellow, clear with a faint white wispy head which dissolves quickly. Light hoppy aroma with a slight grainy presence. Taste is smooth but muted. Somewhat watered down and light for a beer of this style. Very mediocre.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2004
On tap at the Steinkeller, Oxford, OH. Clear straw body, medium off-white head with some clumping. Spicy, grassy wet hay hops aroma. Flavor is grassy and a bit cardboardy with light biscuit and wisps of fruit. There are too many boring pilseners at Steinkeller.

bierwegweiser (2) - GERMANY - NOV 9, 2004 does not count
One of the greatest Pilsener style beers in Eastern Germany, very famous. Great taste, very hoppy, but great to drink.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Bottle at the Blue Danube on High Street in Columbus. Surprised to see this on the beer list - drank many back in Berlin in the early 90s, but haven’t seen this in the US. Solid, crisp, clean, dry, bitter, straight up pilsener. Excellent example of the style.

tap. palest blonde with thinnish white head. watery and thin but refreshing... nothing to brag about, but a decent lighter choice...

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours a pale straw colour with a medium white head. Hop and malt aroma. Malt is a little sweet on the tongue with a more-than-expected hop bitterness. No skunk in my can
