COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewmaster has cleverly blended organic hops from New Zealand and organic malt from the Canadian prairies to create a pure and natural European-style pilsener with strong character and wholesome beauty. Spend an evening with this Bohemian beauty. Pick up a bubbly blonde tonight.

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)

Very pale gold but generous tight white long lasting head. Delicate lacing lasts long enough to dry on the side of the glass. Enticing mild biscuit and home-like aroma. Delicious almost harsh hop flavour with a light underlying malt sweetness. IMO this ranks very well in this category. Well enjoyed with a meal or alone on the patio.

Earthy aroma, malty, hops. Pours a pale yellow, carbonated, thick foamy white head. Nice body, creamy and robust. Crisp hop finish. Slight acids. Just came to market recently but should be considered one of the better Canadian pilseners.

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.

Nice light straw color. Aroma= Distinctly hoppy for western Canada! This is good in my opinion. Hops are almost harsh as stated in a prior review. I find the harshness to be resinous but in style. Very impressed with head retention and lacing. These factors lead me to applaud the brewing techniques. Quite impressed witht the Rose! Cheers

Lubiere (9888) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
Blonde ale with a thick resilient white head. A nice grassy aroma with fresh malts. Big malt tatse with lots of german style hops, very sharp bitterness , almost harsh but still pleasant. Good balance of sweet/bitter. My fellow poker players also enjoyed quite well. Thanks to Presario!

The label advised me to "pick up a bubbly blond tonight" but despite Shoemakers scouting later in the evening, this would prove to be the only Bohemian beauty to grace me with her presence that evening. Nice grassy hop aroma surprised me since I didn’t have grand expectations. Very nice pilsner with slight fruity notes in the background beneath some lovely European hops. (NZ Hallertauer?) Bonus for being organic.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2004 A very pale yellow... I'd say about as pale as Sleeman's clear! Nice aromas of biscuits, hops, and lavender. Hoppy flavor profile, and like the aroma, it's quite herbal and floral. Not quite enough malt to balance out all of the hops, but this is still very drinkable stuff.

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.

Very light yellow in colour with a large fluffy white head, some floaties. Aroma was hoppy, light malt and slight sweetness. Flavour was hoppy, light malt, crisp and dry. Medium-light body. Finishes dry, light bitterness.
