The "fresh hops" brewing process makes the aroma and taste of this beer a real treat to the palate. It presents a light, fresh florel taste that’s very enjoyable to savor and swallow.
Pours yellowish with white head. Smell is hops and grassy grain. Pretty crisp and refreshing bitterness and a solid pilsner. reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap at the brewpub pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Mild aroma of citrus. Taste is citrus and grass bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness underneath. Light bodied with lots of carbonation. A decent pilsner which is worthy of a sample. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Nice amber colour, but no aroma at first. Even well down into the glass, I could not detect any sort of nose. Taste was also somewhat strange at first - maybe a bit "green"? It got better towards the end. I do prefer this on tap versus bottled.

One of my least favourite Big River brews. Much too watery, and though malty, really indistinctive. Boring and watery. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, flimsy, white head. The nose is of warm mash, peppery hops and pale malt with a touch of acetaldehyde. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The pale grain and honey flavor leans slightly toward the sweet side of balance. Finishes crisp and thin. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On draught at the Big River Brewpub south of Vancouver, BC. Pours a clear golden straw brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of crystal grain malt, some grassy hops a touch of apple and very light citrus. Taste is light bodied, some biscuit malt flavor with a hint of grassy hops and apple. Finish is slightly sweet at first and then a dry light bitterness in the aftertaste. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008

Blond color. Light malt aroma, and quite good malt flavor, unexpected; dryish mouthfeel. Correct bitterness. Pleasant.
A good, hoppy pilsner. Pilsners are uncommon in Vancouver brewpubs so kudos for the effort! Wish more local brewpubs would make lagers and pilsners, as we are really sick of boring Pales and Nut Browns.
