Can, labelled as Fort Garry Angry Fish Pilsner, signature beer of the Winnipeg Goldeyes. Pale yellow pour, not much head. Grainy with hints of corn and rice, pretty standard light pilsner body. A touch of hop bitterness and no skunky notes, so not the worst. But basically a lower-tier, barely-craft pilsner.

473 mL can to pint glass Syrup, wheat, a little yeast. Translucent lemony yellow with a sparse white head. A little fruity, with wheat and a little bitterness. There is heavy carbonation giving a burning sensation. Compared to the macros, this is pretty good, but the sweetness is misplaced and the carbonation is too much.

Bottle poured into glass tankard. ~4C. Pours a light yellow colour, high carbonation builds a half inch of white head that lasts about 3 minutes. Beer is crisp like the bottle describes but the bitterness feels out of place and leaves a bad aftertaste. Remnicient of Farmery or a less watered down MGD. All in all an average pilsner at best.

On tap. A pale, yellowish golden beer topped by a small, dense, white head. Not much aroma going on, but there’s some notes grains and fruityness. Some sweetness in the flavor, with a faint bitterness chiming in towards the end. Thin to medium bodied, perhaps a bit hard on the carbonation. Short, grainy finish. A very boring and simple brew, but far from the worst pilsener-style I’ve had. 130703

Golden, clear refreshing, slightly more hopped than other pils. Low cost point makes this a good value beer.

Nice head. Pleasant bitter "Pils" taste, but unfortunatelly a light metallic taste.

Fresh on the palate, with a simple clean finish. Nice summer beer - great for watching a baseball or football game. Great while fishing for Walleye on Lake of the Woods - that is if we were allowed to tip a brew while on the lake - ;)

Good pilsner. Smells slightly skunky and like roasted corn. Sweet grainy and grassy flavours with a nice hoppy ’angry’ finish. I quite liked this.

Canned sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of corn sugar, pale malt, and clover honey. Flavours are of wet grain, more honey, a hint of toast, and some peppery burn on the finish. Medium bodied with a kind of odd sweetness. Not good.
Earlier Rating: 4/16/2011 Total Score: 2.3
Bottled sample. Pale yellow in colour with strong carbonation. Faint aromas of pilsner malt, and even fainter earthy hops. Very dry on the palate with a whisper of malt, green hops, and black pepper-like bitterness. Light bodied and bland, but still far more clean and bitter than your typical North American macro lager.

Sparkles on the palate. Faint but pleasant aroma. Golden colour. This would be a good beer to drink at a baseball game.
