Strangebrewer (843) - Chatham, Ontario, - SEP 27, 2013
can. Poured clear pale yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is light with bready malt. Body is light-medium with a crisp mouthfeel, finish is quite dry. Flavour is fresh and grassy, peppery and tart hop notes.

GregClow (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Can from the LCBO. Clear bright golden-yellow with a couple of fingers of white foam that recedes slowly. Aroma of toasted grain, honey crackers, freshly cut grass, and peppery herbs. Flavour follows the aroma pretty closely - grain and honey sweetness to start, grassy and peppery hops to finish. Builds quite a respectable amount of dry bitterness as it warms up a bit. Starts out a fairly nondescript pale lager, but by the end of the glass, it reveals itself to be a rather nice little pilsner.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
I had a can of this recently from the LCBO. I am saddened by the steps this brewer has taken to offer another dumbed down product for the masses. Its sparkly hazy gold with a huge fizzy froth that dies quickly thereafter. Its quite grainy on the nose and it also hints at some hay grass notes but also creamed corn. A bit sweet with a good bitterness but I cant get the vegetal aroma off my mind as I drink this beast. Creamy finish, with mild bitterness. Ok if you dont want to think too much.

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
2014-05-12. Crisp dark yellow body, large white head fades. Aroma of floral hops over sweet pale malts, buttercup notes. Flavour is sweetish pale malt core, very floral hop character, mild bitterness. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

czar (4259) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
pours clear very light yellow with a decent white head, some retention and lacing. pils malts, graininess, lightly honeyed malts, but overall faint maltiness - some grape juice, faint herbal-grassiness, low but present sulfur notes, clean yeastiness, pepper. average to moderate carbonation, light body - slightly watery, dry herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. this is not a lame attempt to brew a pilsener.

Bendrixian (1087) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Super clear, light gold colour. Muted aroma but there is some green apple and some hay but not much else. On the palate it is richer than expected but that isn’t saying much. I don’t know why people drink pilsners. light crapola.

RhetoricalAns (233) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Pours pale yellow with a medium head that dissipates with a little lacing. Aroma was of sweet grains. Medium body with a semi sweet flavour up front, smooth finish with a bit a of a peppery bitter bite at the end. Overall I was surprised.

Poured from can. Light golden colour with small thin head, medium carbonation. Sweet, grain aroma. Light body. Light malt and sweet. Refreshing.

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
473 mL can. Crystal clear gold with a very thin white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is not promising - smells like caramel corn. It’s not really there in the flavour, though, but neither is anything else. Not dry enough, either. A shame.

robinvboyer (3064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
473ml can. Nice golden pour, big rocky head. Nice pils malt aroma with great grains and some lovely grassy hops. Clean, crisp finish with a soft, medium bitter hoppy finish. Surprisingly good!
