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.

More of a decent American lager than a pilsner. Not so bad as such but just not as clean or defined as say Neustadt Lager. Certainly lacks hoppy detail for a pilsner, there is some bitterness but it lacks the floral dimensions. Not a go-back beer for me. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2002
I thought that this beer was mediocre at best. Obviously mainstream oriented. Faint hop bite to the body, but not a lot in the way of aroma or any kind of distinguishing characters. On par with something like Molson Export. 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.

slightly tart. crisp, nicely hopped. pleasing lager compared to what some ontario micros do. Strangebrewer (1315) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
bottle. Poured slightly hazy and straw coloured with a thin white head. Lightly citrus, grassy hop aroma.Light, crisp, tight bubbled carbonation, dry mouthfeel. Kinda flat grassy flavour with a peppery dryness. Cartoonkhaki (1300) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2002
Excellent pilsener. It’s great when someone local makes something good. Very golden in colour. Had a quickly dissipating head to it. Nothing major. A nice balanced beer that I would recomend. mephisto (1288) - TAIWAN - JUL 10, 2007
draft at bow and arrow in toronto. clear golden with white head, it has sour dough aroma with hint of grapefruit. it is a bit yeasty, but has a unique accent of blended olive and malt. pleasant to drink. mnurda (1285) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottled sample at Ribeye Jacks. Straw colour. Moderately carbonated. Bitter up front. Lots of hops. Tasty
