This is a good light beer with light body and golden color. Very little head and a slight smell of hops, a little citrusy too.

Tap@steamworks brewery. Golden clear. Surprising intense nutty buttery notes. Not bad though. Slight bitter dry finish. Good for pils.

On tap at Central Bistro, pours a piss clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of straw and cereal malt - pretty bland. Flavour is crisp and refreshing, with subtle grassy hops and dry cereal malt. Dry, crisp and very easy to drink. Solid pils - better than the ratings suggest.

On tap at sunset. Clear, slightly yellow, white cap, decent lacing. Good pil aroma, lacking severely in taste/palate.

A little better than their lager but the praise ends there. Pours same,pale golden, but this has some lacing at least. Some crisp grain in finish and a little bitterness. On tap at brewpub.

Beer to tulip glass....whoops.

Aroma: Grassy, lemony, crackers, apple juice.....all very faint though.

Appearance: Transparent piss yellow with a white head that quickly fades.

Taste: Grass, slight caramel, quite bitter.

Palate: Clean and crisp, this is the perfect lawnmower beer. Anyone can drink this! Good balance though I think the alcohol shines a bit much...

Overall: This is a pilsner and while not my favorite style this is pretty good, however it is quite bland. Good with good company and good food.

vadie (780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2013
Jaune claire, très peu de mousse. Un assez bon pilsner avec un premier goût de malt et houblon avec une finale amer. Un peu légèr et un peu aqueux. J’était pas mal surprise qu’il le goût a était aussi fort qu’il était pour une bière tellement claire.

Draft at Alibi Room, Vancouver. Kind of surprised to see the lower ratings on this one; thought it a rather nice pils. Pours a golden color with little head. Faintly yeasty aroma, maybe just a touch of apple in there as well. Smooth, rounded mouthfeel, finish is complex, sweet then bitter, with just the barest hint of umami. I’m not usually gaga over this style, but this came off really well.

Not a lot on the nose, faint malty sweetness. Golden straw coloured pour. Hops creeps up on the palate with lingering citrus notes on the finish.

On tap at Steamworks Brewpub, Vancouver... Color too light, bad head. Real Pilsener taste, but a little bit too soft... Okay!
