omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2006
UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 Draught at the brewpub. Deep clear golden. Grassy, grainy nose. There’s sweet malt up front. The mouthfeel is clean, and it’s followed by a drier finish with resiny hop bitterness. A bit harsh.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Pale blond color, hazy; creamy head. Mild aroma of crispy malt and hop. The flavor of crispy malt is very good in the front, with citrusy, lemony hops and a light grassy touch; unfortunately the bitterness is too high in the end, and covers the malt. Pleasant, but unrefined.

saxo (13851) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2012
Tap @ Steamworks, Vancouver. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are grass, straw, soap, malt and hops.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2005
Copper colour. Aroma is grassy, lemony and bready - quite promising. Rich pithy bitterness, some toast and light bread note over top. Sort of an "amber pilsner" like Jamtlands Barnsten. I’d prefer if it were without the toasty notes, though, but it’s not bad nonetheless.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005
Lingering fluffy white head over a slightly hazy golden coloured beer. Aroma is mostly spicy hops. Saaz/Sterling aroma with a touch of light caramel malt. Flavour is also a combination of pale malt, a touch of caramel, and spicy and citrusy hops. Lemony (not cascady) flavour. Long bitter finish. Clean bitterness. Quite tasty and refreshing. A good pilsener, especially for this pub.

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Color of Rapunzel’s hair--slightly hazy golden leaving ample fronds of lacing on the glass.Crystal clear hop flavors with whispers of licorice in the aftertaste. Pure aromas reminiscent of a Bavarian lager. One I could drink all night.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
(Draught) Thin, white, creamy head with nice lacing with a clear, amber, non-carbonated body. Fruity chinook hops with peaches. Fairly chalky but quite good. Good malt and hop balance. Enjoyable!

solidfunk (3872) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.

A decent offering from one of my less favorite breweries. Hazy amber, long lasting white head.Good lace.Decent body. Good malt profile with crisp dry hop finish
