Wow. From the first sniff, this one is a winner. Herbs and a bit of spice on the nose, smooth and clean finish. This is a really great, drinkable beer. Thanks to the good folks from Artisan Ales for brining this to Alberta! JoeMcPhee (10135) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Tap at Wvrst. Pale straw colour - light haze and a thick white head. Just a beautiful spicy aroma. Fresh Saaz and a touch of herbal/lemony spiciness on the finish. Very clean pale malt with a touch of breadiness. Clean soft
bitterness. The description doesn’t really convey just how balanced and
quaffable this beer is. Just a lovely, lovely brew. Excellent balance. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Slightly hazy straw color with strong activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with some good legs.
Fresh floral aroma with sweet grainy malt. Flavors of grains, corn, lemon, honey, herbal and floral spices. Nice grassy and quality malty biscuity feel with a little roasted smoky corn. Highly crispy with a pleasant dose of sugar.
Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Balanced medium strength clean finish, ending with a faint citrusy and slightly dry tongue numbing noble spices.
Overall an excellent craft having delicious balanced flavors and great freshness.
Well spiced and accessible. I’m in love with Kölsch now! MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013

Pure, cushy cereals join herbal hops in this most generous of unfiltered Pilseners.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the misty straw blond, lacing beautifully.
-The hops also contribute citrusy tips.
-Some batches have a few banana esters showing up, but they fit in perfectly.
-The aroma is more evocative at a warmer temperature, which is not often the case with this style.
-This doesn’t taste like an emulation of German Pilseners, nor does it taste like a Svetly Lezak. But it is a mighty fine lager nonetheless.

Le Trou has never let me down yet. Poured a hazy straw with a small sudsy head that disappeared fast. Aroma was of wheat, honey, citrus, and a little vinous. Tasted of cereal, wheat, and light orange flavour. Had a medium body with a smooth mouth feel and low carbonation. It had a weak white wine bite near the end, which was refreshing. Not big on Pilseners, but Trou always does a nice twist on things.

Easily the best ’Sner I have ’snerred in a ’sner’s age! T du D just bangs beers out of the park, especially styles I am not a huge go-to fan of. It’s a hazy light straw with a thin white head that smells of wheat, corn, must basement, cereal and white wine. Taste is bittersweet, light caramel and white bread. I’d pound this Pils on the reezy son...uhhh!
