Really inviting floral and lightly spicy hop nose is supported by a pleasant, lightly grainy malt profile. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a slight, white, fine bubbles head that lasts well and leaves some lace. Flavour is as the aroma promises - plenty of floral and spicy hops, moderate bitterness and lovely cereal, grainy malt character. Medium light body with fairly strong, lightly prickly carbonation. Really reminds me of Christofel Blond which is a personal favourite. Well done! Enjoyed on tap as Gary Lohin (of Red Racer)’s Hoppy Pilsner at the Alibi Room.

LCBO can. What they call a pils in Canada. Not much hop flavour, a bid above a macro of same style. Cheese in nose. So-so drinkability.

GlennHendry (460) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2017
Has the classic grainy, spicy aroma of a German Pilsner. There are floral and light citrus hops in there too. Nice finish. Well done.

Johnsense (1676) - - MAY 13, 2017
Clear golden pour, larger foamy head that fizzles out quickly, no lacing. Grainy, Grassy aroma, wheat. Grassy up front, lighter hopping, grains, somewhat sweet, lighter bitterness. Lighter body, fairly dry in the finish, slightly sweet aftertaste. Good campfire beer.

cfrancis (3456) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2017
Pours a crystal clear gold with a small white top. Aroma is light floral malt and light hop. Taste is a nice clean taste, light floral notes and a touch of hops. Great easy drinker.

googleimage83 (166) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2017
Very clear lager gold, foamy head, lightly bubbly. Grainy, sweet aroma - mild grassy hops, wheat; clean. Taste is balanced, smooth, lightly bitter, grainy, a bit sweet. Pretty solid body for a lager. A fine example of a quality pilsner.

Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2017
Pours golden yellow with small white head that is gone in no time. Crisp taste to it. Great after taste. Not as lively as other Pilseners, but leaves bit of tingling on tongue. Nice dry finish.

Listigovers (1174) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Nice pale gold colour and a ton of sparkle. Smells somewhat sweet and tastes on the sweet side with a bit of grain, not enough dryness for me but easy to drink and okay.

dfearnley (2146) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Can Consummation: Lemondrop, malts, corn, some bitterness Adjunct: Lots of corn aromatics, malt and wheat

Hungover (103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Can. Small head disappears quick/ Sweet grain and a dry finish. Musky flavors. Not bad.
