Bought a can from the beer store. Pours clear gold with a big white head. Aroma is malts, cereal and honey. Flavours are grains, grass and honey.   Light body with medium carbination. Really nice beer.

light golden colour, well-hopped, crispy, dry - really not bad

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Ligh gold in color, white head and fine lace. Some malts noted at the start, some what sweet at the top and a bit of hops noticed at the fairly dry finish. Clean and fresh as a pilner should be, not bad for a non-dark beer, quite drinkable.

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.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
341ml bottle. Pours a very light yellow, minimal head. Aromas of honey, white grape, peach. The taste is white grape too, slightly grassy. Sweet finish, a little pencil lead, with faint bitter hops. I’m not a lager guy, but this is pretty decent. Would buy again when the weather turns warm.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale golden-straw pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit straw-like. Sort of crackery with a touch of light chewiness. Bready with crackery pils malt. Very clean and fairly tasty.

cluxy (3) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011 does not count
Dark golden, a bit cloudy, white frothy head. Smells of apple juice. Floral hops, lemon with a hint of sweetness, lots of light bubbles, almost champagne-like. A mostly crisp finish with a bit of sour zing left on the tongue.

Pours clear yellow gold with a moderate white foam. Aroma is light floral hops and grassy grains. Taste is a great blend of grains and floral hops.

I’m always chasing rainbows. In this case, the rainbow is a locally made pilsner that doesn’t suck. Yes, pilsner, that oh so unhip beer style that moustache waxers sneer at. I like ’em when I can find a good one -- which is rare. This one is better than expected, especially considering some of the dismissive reviews below. Pretty decent arc of the pilsner experience here: crisp, somewhat flowery hops, with that swishy absorbic acid like flush in the finish. Better than Creemore & King offerings. Still, doesn’t come close to the Victory Prima Pils that I was able to enjoy in the States. Still chasing rainbows.

First of two Ontario Pilsner tonight (the other being the Perth one). Pours a light golden colour with a white cap, almost creamy, long lasting and with some creamy lacing. Sweet malty nose with some bread notes and honey. A little hops, but more apparent in the taste. Decent bitterness and Saaz notes. This calms down the sweetness in the mouth. Good cereal malts overall. Refreshing, crisp and quite drinkable. Maybe a little too rich for a pilsner.
