BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
500 ml can from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a light golden straw color with light and short-lived carbonation and a fluffy, milky head that retreats to leave thin lace islands. Aroma is primarily a clean herbal, green noble hop and lightly honeyed grain profile, while the flavor is a mildly bitter, crackery malt with orange and lemon zest/marmalade, and the sip finishes with a herbal, peppery touch. Thin-bodied, and the bitterness only lasts for the briefest of moments. Steam Works definitely has a lock on good pilsner flavor, and it’s eminently quaffable at a pleasing price.

revoltingblob (45) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2016
draft sample. Pours a very pale straw color. Tiny head, no lacing. Nose is very clean, some faint fresh hops, some kind of citrus lemonadey thing. Palate is very clean, mild carbonation, a little bland. This beer is okay.

sawyerpc15 (43) - Bowser, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2016 Had a different complexity of tastes and you could tell it was crafted rather then the regular Canadian lagers. I liked it but thought their pale ale was better.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Slightly hazy pale straw color with some nice activity. Thick, almost creamy, white 3 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with some strong legs. Aromas and flavors of citrus, grains, fruits, floral and herbal spices (saaz). Well intensified crisp taste of slight lemony and orange sweetness with a pleasant floral and earthy bitterness feel. Very light body with prickly carbonation. Balanced finish ending with a bitter clove spiciness and a strong grassy feel on the tongue. Overall : Good craft; nice flavors, well intensified, but lacking some freshness and a little too thin.

AgentAle (1431) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Aroma is clove, citrus, sulphur and slight tart. Taste is light malts, grain and some clove. Pretty shallow taste overall. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Fabulous Pilsner with a craft style. I’m a lover of good soft Czech pils rather than the highly crispy German pils. This beer has the best elements of Kozel with its soft smooth mouthfeel and an expertly crafted and balanced hop mix. Head is weak on the pour. Colour is very light. Nose is candy. Taste is first sweet and fruity giving way to a great bitterness which isn’t overpowering. Could drink this all night long.

mansquito (5043) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is bread and grass. Taste is lightly bitter with a nice pale malt backbone. Extremely clean and drinkable. Very good pils.
