Sampled from can at Standard Market, Westmont. Not much tops a really fresh pilsener, even out of a can or bottle. But the style is very delicate and demanding, which is why there are not many small brewer versions on shelves. This one has a sharp, peppery nose of Noble German hops, pale yellow, with a welcome beer fizz. taste is clean, with light malts working hand-in-hand with those hops.

On tap at Darby’s, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light bready malts and a touch of grassiness. Flavour is not very pilsner-like, with dry, almost cardboardy malts, a little grass and very lint bitterness. Makes me question the age of this. Not too good.

fiulijn (18598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Draught at Darby’s Gastown, Vancouver; 12oz
Hazy dark blond color. The aroma is mild, some grass, some crisp malts, I’m afraid there’s a diacetyl shade too. Smooth mouthfeel, quite some residual sweetness for the style, the malt flavor is quite good, crusty bread, the bitterness level is correct, the hops are quite grassy, and the hint of butter is not actually disturbing. I sense a light sourness in the final, but it’s just a wild idea.
Solid Pilsner.
