341 mL bottle. Copper-peach colour with a short-lived white head. Darker than most pilsners I’ve tried. Mild aroma is fresh, earthy noble hops, and not a lot else. Not bad, but I wanna smell some pilsner malt. Actually, I’d like to taste some, as well. But I can’t. Not much, anyhow. Hops are there, though. A little sweet. Undry, if you will. Quite drinkable, but not much of a pilsner. Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden with a thcik foamy off-white head. Great retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is malt and floral aroma. Flavor is malty, but sweeter than expected with floral hops and a moderately bitter finish. Interesting pilsener. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 341 ml bottle from a mill street mixed sixer. bottled may 13th 2009. quite the sexy pils here. pours copper with a tight white head. aroma of grassy hops and crisp pils malt. perfectly layered pils flavours. dry hoppy finish. hella drinkable and my new fav pilsener. great work mill street.////////////////AFTER A GREAT FIRST RUN THIS ONE REALLY TOOK A NOSE DIVE INTO STEWED VEG AND FLABBY MALT TERRITORY, I DONT DRINK THIS BEER ANYMORE AND ITS A SHAME BECASUE THE FIRST RUN WAS PROBABLY THE BEST ONTARIO BREWED PILSNER AT THE TIME DerWeg (1682) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
Crisp, balanced, lemony and a bit grapey-sweet with a good body. Dark golden pour and small frothy head. Smells quit epure, a little grassy and sweet. The malt sweetnes stands up, the aroma could be more floral, but overall I like this local quaffer. Would drink again - this was on draught at MS brewpub.

Pint at The Kick Off in Waterloo. Taps a nice slightly deep golden with a large white frothy head. The aroma is very nice, elegant hop character, with some nice sweet grainy malts as well. The hop character is very much what I would expect from a Pils done in Ontario, and in fact both the aroma and flavour remind me a lot of Creemore’s Pilsener. Very nice, not too distinctive though. Very sweet but well balanced with the fine hoppiness. Glad to have tried it, and I would gladly session it, though I wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 On tap at Brewpub:
Golden color. tight cap laces well....grainy light floral aroma.
Nice whak of malt in the front but the balance wasn’t there from the Saaz..light clean finish.
Tasty, malty-fresh, smooth and drinkable but not on target for the style. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Draught at brewpub. Not sure if this is the organic version...Mostly clear pure golden with aerated white head. Hops in aroma are promising a lot. Not pronounced but totally fresh. Hops! Hops! Yay! Refreshing! Bitter aftertaste over a soft, solid fresh grain body. A really nice (and hoppy!) pils. RERATE: is not what it was. Too sweet and under hopped. Dull and sad. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2008
A bland take on a great style.

Completely lacking the hop punch, the malt intricacies or the freshness of the good examples. Nuance-less generic blond lager which aims at the masses with its generic Bio tag.
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy blonde yellow with a medium white head. Has a great Saaz aroma. Reminds me of an Urquell. Incredible bolus of hop bitterness up front, then the beer just whimpers away. Very authentic and true to style. dangermoose (9) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2007 does not count
Overall, this beer is a disappointing experience. It came, on draft, with no head and not appearing significanlty different than a glass of Allen’s apple juice. No, head and very little carbonation. Sleeman clear was also on tap that night and I might as well have ordered that. The flavor was faint...a slightly beery taste and that’s it.
