Pours clear sparky amber food fluffy head. Mild nose with malty notes. Crisp malty taste followed by balanced bitterness

gildnerk (132) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 29, 2014
One of the early Ontario non-macro brews, which has in the meantime become more of a macro brew in popularity. Orange-yellow with a decent foamy white head. Aromas of corn, flowers and sweet malts. Rather hoppy for a lager, with corn and malt notes. Medium carbonation, rather thin body. Drinkable.

A great light lager with fresh corn aroma and enough hops to balance out. Like another reviewer points out it’s quite 1 dimensional but it’s well balanced and a tasty summer pilsner. If you’re looking for state of the art you’re not going to find it but one of my pet peeves about rate beer and beeradvocate is a snobby attitude around less developed beers. Tastes like a well executed mainstream beer with more hops Sometimes a refreshing summer lager is pretty effing great!

cargo150 (686) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Couleur blonde avec un mince col mousseux. Nez de levure pilsner et de quelques céréales. En bouche ce n’est pas une bière exceptionnel mais une pilser qui se prend bien contrairement a certaine autre bière commercial.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 My favourite summer beer. 1 dimensional but not offensive if fresh and sharp and clean hops if cold.

I usually don’t like beer in a green bottles, but a friend gave me one so I had to try it. Well I always be a green bottle snob but this beer was quite nice. It pours a pale straw colour.It had a fast disappearing head. The taste is malt sweetness with some citrus overtones. Quite enjoyable. I’d drink it straight out of the bottle.

Pint at the pint house, toronto. It's quite a nice pilsner. Nothing really much else to say. It's refreshing and lagery. It's very OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very underwhelming. Nice clarity with a light white foamy head. Bubbly and well carbonated. Their tag line is do 1 thing well but I feel they don’t do that.

OntBeerDrinker (446) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
clear golden pale, carbinaded. Might of had it once or a few times many many yrs ago and if so didn;t like it then. Some of it was crisp, easy drinking bready biskity the good parts. But a lot more heavy n hopy then I would want in a pilsner and had some syrup sweet malt taste that made it taste a bit like a high % lager and that part I didn’t like/

Very light hoppy aroma. Big head with big bubbles. Very clear, darker yellow. Does taste more like a generic pilsner than a generic american standard. Sort of like a hoppier version of your average macro. Pretty uneventful except for the hop bitterness in the finish.
