COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Straw. Grassy aroma with a strong pale malt signature. Clean pale malt body with a touch of grassy hop - nothing that screams noble - and very minimal bitterness.

Cimbasso (28) - - MAY 17, 2014
A clean-tasting German Pilsner with a typical light golden colour and a white head, which dispersed very quickly. The version tested here (at Foggs n Suds) was on tap and served, in the local fashion, very cold. Pleasantly dry and not particularly hoppy. Good balance, but not very memorable. Washed the spicy Weeping Tiger beef dish down very nicely.

MunBro (264) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Very watery straw beer. Typical of a pilsner. I wouldn’t ever choose to drink this but it came in a sampler.

Light, pale straw. Definitely a pil aroma. Dried grass, hay. Easy drinking with nice crisp bite. Little thin.

I’m more of an ipa fan so my opinion might be biased. I enjoyed this pilsner. Reminded me of my younger age when the cheapest lager at the store was our choice. But in a good way.

Bit of a disappointment. Light malt flavors, hardly detectable hops, very watery over the palate. Nothing offensive about it, the taste isn’t horrible, it’s just a very thin, flavorless beer.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle sampled @ Edmonton Craft Beerfest. Medium yellow, sweet grainy aroma and flavour, lightly yeasty, metallic note in the finish.

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Tastes like highschool -- sugary-sweet, metallic, only slightly grassy -- much like how I remember the Keith’s and Mooseheads of the world. A yellow beer; Noble in name only.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
On tap. Pours straw with nice white head. Lemon, DMS, grassy nose, flavour is a bit paperish and metallic. We were hesitant about getting a jug of this and were pleased that it wasn’t that bad; it’s a passable pilsener, slightly better than a typical macro imho .

This stuff has that typical Canadian microbrew after taste. Blonde color... it’s bitter enough but not one of the most memorable pilsners out there.
