Crockett (1141) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2017
Pours gold, with a big lacing white head. Very slow moving carb. Nose of very plain lightly toasted cereal malts. Faint sweet hop flowers. It has a real upscale macro sensibility. It's crafted well though. Quite sweet for a Pilsner. Like, icing sugar sweet. Cracker malts, grassy/apple hops. Mild herbal bitters through the finish. It's clean and much easier to get around than the corn filled adjunct lagers. Non-offensive in any way. Just very, very boring. I would not call this a traditional pilsner. Too sweet. samzim (440) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Clean gold colour. Malty aroma with some bready notes. Crisp and slightly bitter with notes of bread. Light body with lively carbonation. Pleasant and easy to drink. Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2017
Sample from a flight of 4 at Toronto airport. Another pleasant surprise where not much was expected. Bright clear gold with a white mousse of head. Clover honey on biscuit aroma. Set honey, biscuit and bread/cookie dough flavours, with a finish dry enough to stimulate another sip. This is more a German style pilsner than a Czech.
It’s hard to get all lyrical, and find the purple prose to venerate this style of beer, given that it was simply designed to be an unpretentious quaffer for the working man at the end of his days toil. However, I toy with the idea that if you were to apply Plato’s theory of forms to beer, it would be a pint (or 1/2 litre) of German pilsner, and this one would do the job. azzurro (537) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2017
Got this one after baseball today. Chugged it as it was become very hot after 14 innings. Nice beer, nothing special to it. shawnmurphy (701) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2017
On tap at Arriba restaurant/bar in the Renaissance hotel at Rogers Centre in downtown Toronto. Pours clear gold with spritz white head and lacing. Aroma: honey, biscuit. Flavor: all the above, with some Capt. Crunch cereal; malt-forward. Mouthfeel: light- to medium-bodied, creamy; very sweet finish with slightest prickly finish from hops.

Lots of hops in the nose. Grassy, banana, fresh cut grass, wet grass. Clear light golden pour with a ton of head.
Wow that’s smooth and easy to drink. I’m not normally a pilsner fan but I dig this. A bit sweet and not really all that bitter despite all the hops scent. Light, not overly carbonated despite the amount of head.
I rather like this.

Not bad for pilsener, however darker than I prefer. Solid flavour, however finish is a bit sloppy. BreWedge (574) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 11, 2017
On tap @ The Keg St John's. Pours a light straw yellow with a moderate white head. Aromas are a little honey and hay. Tastes are lightly sweet honey, grass, florals, and some light bitter bite. Light body, crisp, medium bitter finish. Quite refreshing.

one of my favorite beers. easy drinking but with substance of a craft brew. Tessic (1269) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2017
This pils poured a medium yellow colour with a bright white head. Not bad lacing. Scents include corn, hay and honey. First swig was some what thin. Good flavour of honey and hop. Finish is a little sweet with a mild bitterness.
