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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 refrigerated bottle bought at the Guelph LCBO.
Pours clear yellow with a small frothy disappointing white head. aroma of straw reminds me of a standard pilsner. not very malty and somewhat dry but minimal bitterness. Fairly thin and nothing special. This is most certainly not F&M’s best.

Drank this one weekend at the cottage alongside JR Brickman’s Pilsener and this was by far superior. Very fruity floral hop aroma and flavor. A little on the sweet side keeping the finish from all it could be. Cheers!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells like a German Pilsner. Fairly strong hop aroma.
Pours a clear gold colour.
Tastes like a German Pilsner (very similar to Warsteiner). Hops is present, but in perfect balance.
Lots of carbonation. Goes down smooth with little aftertaste.
I was a little nervous to buy this beer. Overall I was very impressed. A good drinking beer, made with premium ingredients and produced locally. How can you go wrong?

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
May 4 2012. Pours cloudy yellow with thin white soapy head which immediately dissolves to ring. Little lacing. Aroma is cereal, straw, hints of roasted malt or oats. Taste is primarily the same; cereal and straw with a nice hint of roasted grains in finish. No sweet or bitter aftertaste but good crisp mouthfeel with slight alcohol on moderate carbonated palate. Really just par pilsner but enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
5% Premium Pilsner. Pours a golden yellow. Thin white head. Aroma is nutty, sweet, cereal, wet cardboard. Taste, good mouthfeel coating, but unfortunately the cardboard continues, although previous cereal good biscuit remains. Overall not too bad. Might have waited too long to drink the bottle. I purchased the bottle at the brewery in October/11 and didn’t consume until late Jan.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Wooly in Guelph. Everyone else has described the appearance well. The aroma and taste are moderately malty, grassy and yeaty. Quite nice overall but nothing that really distinquishes it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head, deep gold / copper twinge. Malty, aromatic hops nose (sweet-spicy). Sweet malty start, drying out with the same hops as the nose. Great mouthfeel. Citrus notes, banana (???). My favourite with Indian Curry.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Solid pilsner. Great appearance but lacks the hoppy kick of a great pils. Would drink again but not seek it out
