Draft - Light grainy bitterness. Clear gold with a decent white head. Nice grainy notes with a touch of sweetness and bitterness. Solid. AgentAle (1726) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, light sweet euro malts. Taste light sweet and dry malts that are balanced well with a pretty bastic bitterness. Finishes crisply and smoothly. Appearance is a yellow /orange clear body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2014
Tap at Brewsters 11th av. Golden, fine carbonation. Golden cream. Fine leafy hop aromatics on a full chewy base, dry grassy, light earthy finish. Green aftertastste. Might not exactly be a Czech pils, but it is interesting what they did with saaz and sterling here. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Light golden, earthy, lots of sort of stale saaz, light body, clean...good but the saaz aren’t as fresh as they need to be...fresher hops would make this a decent pils. Not sure the vampire-Czech thing either. Vampires were Romania, right? Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
An enjoyable pilsner. A light golden color. Aroma is of grains and some light citrus from the hops. Flavour is quite good with light grainyness and some nice saaz hop flavours. I'm more of an ale guy myself but this is a pilsner I really enjoy.

Nice deep gold colour, small creamy white head. Mild malt aroma with a tinge of caramel. Flavour is strong malts, again with a trace of caramel. Long bitter finish. Creamy body. Good but the malts seemed a little caramelized. Rerate: Whatever right? Nobody cares... Beer

On tap at Brewsters Castledowns. Clear yellow colour, nice white foam, medium retention. Aroma is pleasant, generously hopped. Mouthfeel is bubbly and crisp, medium carbonation. Taste is hint of sweet malt, dries out in the fairly smooth finish with a nice hoppy presence. Delicious. BeerandBlues2 (13199) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Tap at Brewsters Alberta. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, corn, spicy hops, and clean. Flavor is malty with a clean fermentation character, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
Not sure if this is a different beer or just a different name. Just stopped in 11th for schooner Monday. First czeched the seasonals list for hops and then went back to main age for choice between this "new" favourite and Rig Pig. Vampire won. A nice crisp clean sharp hoppy easy drinking pilz.

Softer maltier body than typical for the style. Thin aroma Nice peppery hop body and finish. For a brewpub a nice example.
On tap and in bottles, Lake Bonavista location. I was told by the server that this is a new pilsener recipe. Medium golden, generous soapy white head that laces early on. Grainy aroma with distinct light tropical fruit nuances. Clean pale grains with a firm bitterness in the finish. Crisp and clean. An absolutely spot-on pils, nice hops and really solid bitterness reminiscent of northern German examples. Very very good pilsener.

Clear gold with a creamy white head generating nice lacing. Fresh biscuity aroma. Deliciously malty with a beautifully balanced hoppy bitterness and clean finish. This is an excellent lager.
