Draft pint at the brewery taproom; straw colored with a stiff head of white foam. Quite smooth and elegantly hopped, this takes on a Czech-like character. Very light aroma. Nice pils ... RB’erians stop hating good beers just because they’re yellow. May not be a Victory Prima Pils, but this yet another underrated, quality pilsner. (#2869, 5/13/2007)

Super light golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of hops, pale malt and some sweetness. Medium-bodied; Astringent hoppiness with some floral tastes. Aftertaste clean and crisp. Overall, nice and fresh. I sampled this beer on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Onatrio.

Well the very pale bosy didn’t draw me in very far but there was some small promise of hops in the aroma to do the job. The taste was clean but very thin in the mouth and while there was a trace of some bitter hops it was left lacking in the finish. Throw some more hops in there and beef it up a little and it would be even more drinkable - as is it does OK but fairly standard.

Clear yellow, huge fluffy head. Nice slightly hoppy aroma. Good clean and crisp taste, a great example of the style. Short slightly hoppy finish. A great summer beer.

Possibly Wild Rose’s best brew. A true pilsner taste from a Canadian brewer. Astounding! Poured a light straw color with a white frothy 2 finger cap that took a while to go down to a surface covering lace. Low carbonation. smells of saaz hops and light wheat malts...very nice. Starts with a wonderful tart taste punctuated by the hops then that familiar Czech Pilsner bitter-dryness is unleashed upon a background of wonderful wheat and barley malts in a smooth as silk mouth feel...the finish is dry, metallic and then has a wonderful biscuit malt after taste which is the signature of this brewer. Avery decent pilsner and I’m a pils head....I like this beer very much.

Sweet, light malt, rather soft notes, light hoppy character. Pale gold, white head. Light bodied lager with substantial malt base. Some semi dry green bitterness at finish. Slightly to thin body, needs more development and balancing.

Ugly yellow with floaties, not nice to look at. Decent malt and hop balance. Lightly bitter finish, decent body. Not too bad.
