pootzboy (1572) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a lightly hazed gold with a tight white 2 finger cap that lasts well and laces. Moderate carbonation Aroma is woodsy-botanical with some robust bread dough malt tones and just a kiss of green apple. Soft mouth feel silky delivery. Up front the bready malts mingle with the woody-leafy hallertauer and spalter hops, lovely soft mineral palate, finishes in perfect balance between biscuity malts, earthy hops and soft mineral mouth from the water. A great summer patio lager...not really in the Czech style, ...more like a soft Bavarian pilsner made with old style hop varieties...excellent! I’m a lager head and I could drink oceans of this at a session.

Proteus93 (65) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2008
A: Clean, pale golden / straw coloured. White, sudsy head could retain a little better but doesn’t totally fall short at all. A sweet kiss of malts, with an added touch of citrus hops - almost more of a ’cleaning formula’ type citrus, but I don’t find those to taste horrid, so it works out okay. Comes across as a bit too malty. A little earthy, and an herbal hoppiness that is a little unbalanced against the malt presence. Body is lighter, as it should be, but there is still a bit of a stickiness that is a little out of place. Easy on the alcohol, as it should be. Probably not a choice I’d make, but a reasonable brew for the sake of drinking it without expecting much.

GregClow (2812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2008
Bottle. Light golden with a small white head. Aroma of honeyish malt and floral & grassy hops with a slight buttery edge. Medium bodied. Flavours follow on the aroma quite closely - sweet malt with honey notes to start, mild buttery middle, lightly hopped finish with a pleasant herbal character. A bit too subtle, but not bad.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2008
HAd on tap in Kelowna, BC. A pour of golden straw yellow. A medium white head which doesn’t disapear. Taste is grassy and a little hoppy. Smooth taste and mouthfeel, but overall, a average pilsner.

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
bottle: Pours a nice golden yellow with white head. Grassy nose -similar to a Steamwhistle in this regard. Very smooth and drinkable like most pils with a well balanced bitterness.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Bottle. Golden, big creamy head. Light rubber and leafy hop nose. Fairly bland, light carboard, a bit grass, watery.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007
Draft @ the brewery. Golden yellow with a small white head. Floral, lightly buttery aroma. Sweeter flavour than expected, grassy notes, light bitterness. (5+) Average palate.

TheJester (1726) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
341 mL bottle. Slightly darker than most pilsners, with almost no head. The aroma is quite mild; sweet, grassy, mild hops. The taste is pretty mild as well; mostly sweet malt. Thin. Medium carbonation. This beer needs to be a little crisper to be considered a proper pilsner. Not great.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours ultra-clear. The color and scent of honey pervades the glass. Highly carbonated and tastes a lot like honey but mellowed. Doesn’t do it for me.

MatKool (64) - CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
Hoppy nose and pours a cloudy yellow with a short head. Medium hoppy palate with a slight bitter aftertaste. It’s a full flavored pilsner from a great brewery.
