Bottle - thanks to tupalev. Clear, bright light gold colour with a small, fluffy white head. Fresh aroma of bready malt, citrus and grassy hops. Crisp mouthfeel. Perfectly balanced flavour of sweet (but not too sweet) malt, fruit notes, and herbal/grassy hops. Dry, refreshing finish. Really nice stuff!

I deleted my review of this beer from last year because I felt that the changes done to it, basically, made it a whole new beer....so a new review is in order. I am aware the brewer is now using soft spring water and better hops in reformulating this German style pils. It certainly had a great deal of impact as this is now one of the tastiest ( if not the best) Ontario micro pils. Poured into my glass as a pale straw, slightly hazed lager with a nice fluffy white cap that lasts and laces the glass well. Champagne-like carbonation with spirals of small bubbles coming of the glass bottom. The nose is filled with a pleasant blend of musty fruits, herbs and sweet bready malt aromas. Medium-light body has good malt pronouncement balanced well with herbal hops and a unique musty fruit tone ( from the yeast). The finish is lightly bready and very citrusy with a slight bittering aftertaste. A very pleasnat blend of tastes, very drinkable and satisfying for those who like malt accented Gernam pilsners. This will be a standard summer quaff for me.

Pours straw coloured with no head. Off aroma of grass and grain. Taste is some weird mixture of watered down malt and herbs.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
This seemed like a bad ale to me not a Pilsener. Thin head. Malty, almost roasty aroma. Too sweet and lacking character.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Thanks to Joey Capps. Not much of an aroma - some sweet cereal. Overy sweet and herbal. Reminds 40’s purchased from the corner store.

Crockett (1110) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pale straw and hazy. Tiny head. Minimal lemony wheat aroma. Mild yeasts and apricot. Minerals. Doesn’t look lagered. Some caramel in the finish. Bland.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
Clear gold. White head. Light, mildly biscuity aroma. Light, grainy feel. Sweet, biscuity flavour w/ notes of wet cardboard & grassy hops.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
Tasty and refreshing. On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Sparkling gold body accompanied by a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Flavour is sweet and more lagery than pilsnery. (Am I allowed to say lagery and pilserny?) Decent.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 29, 2003
This is a very ordinary beer in all respects. Very middle of the road aroma, some bits of sweetness. Palate is a little dry. Not exactly a good buy for me.

CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2003
(Bottle) Medium, foamy, white head and a pale yellow body. Tiny sediment. Little carbonation. Nose of citrus, banana and spice. Nice texture, sweet corn and grassy flavour with bitter finish. Good.
