Head disappears quickly with gentle lacing. Level of carbonation is appropriate to style. Balanced malt and hop taste typical of a Pilsner, with slight grainy overtones. Clean palate and Saaz hops finish. Taste is closer to style than many other North American brews that claim to be a Pilsener.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with nice ftothy white head. There’s a mild malty aroma and some grains present. A little biscuity aroma. There’s not much to the taste - sweet and malty, no real bitterness in teh finish. Nothing special, but not bad at all. Very decent.

ectuohy27 (551) - ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2014
Redcup-style aroma, though mild--along with all the other elements; primary features are water, chalkiness, and a slightly hoppy, very grassy finish. Forgettable

cmacklin (229) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, short lived white head. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Flavour is bland with notes of malt and a mildly dry, bitter finish. Light body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Nothing special.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
On tap at the Holiday Inn-Yorkdale, Toronto. A fairly basic lager, designed to be drunk cold and quickly; straw coloured; grainy aroma; sweet grainy taste with perhaps a touch of citrus; and the faintest of acquaintances with a hop of some sort.

BrewGoblin (261) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Sort on an obligatory "delight" when visiting Toronto. I mean you don’t have to, nor should you go out of your way. It pours like a cold, carbonated version of piss with a rocky white head. The taste and smell of this one is all grain, bread, hay and some light roasted malts. Hops have been all but banished from this bubbly brew, most enjoyable on a hot summer day in TO.

kaser (2541) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Draft pour at bier market in Montreal. Golden and bubbly appearance like a bud light. Huge banana flavored pilsner. Kind of bitter. Pretty flavorful for a 5% pilsner.

BeerGolem (661) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample on tap at Craft Beer Market (Vancouver). Pours clear yellow with tiny white head. Aroma: slight touch of malt. Taste: malt and nothing else. Refreshing is the only quality I can think of for this Pale Lager.
