fiulijn (20063) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Tasting at Matts; can; as Starke Pils, 5.2% ABV
Taste and aroma are between "nice malt" and "cheap Dutch Lager"; its mellow and sturdy, quite heavy despite the low ABV; I would drink a glass just with food. Not too bad.

Pour clear gold with a nice white head that lasts the whole beer. Aroma is malt, hay and grass. Taste is grain, and hay with a dry finish. It has a light/medium body with medium carbination which makes it easy to drink. Very good pilsener.

sudomorph (1133) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 473ml can. C3116 date. Pours a clear, golden caramel with a one finger, white head. Aroma has notes of grain, traditional pils hops, hints of grass, and a touch of fruity esters. Taste is balanced bit a touch bitter. Notes of grain, earthy/spicy/grassy traditional hops, and a touch of caramel mixed with hop bitterness at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a crisp, medium dry finish. Overall a nicely crafted pils. Pretty on point for the style.
