Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2010
Can from the brewery. A foamer, opening spritzed wide on my desk. The aroma consists of some cheese, some hops, and some sardine. Very light body with rising carbonation bubbles, and 2 inches or more of head. A tad below medium mouthfeel. Taste is sardine oil, moderate bitterness, drinkable really. Above average carbonation. A modest astringent aftertaste, but satisfying following a workout. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
2010-07-15. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Mild aroma, grassy hop character. 5+ Flavour is similar, very mild bitterness, light grassy hops. Average palate suits it, lightly carbonated. Pretty decent for a lighter beer, but its pretty mild and simple overall. Not super exciting, but decent. Can from the LCBO, Toronto
DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Can, shipped to me from Kingston, paired with butter chicken. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with an everlasting bubbly white head that clings to the glass. Aroma is clean grains, minerally undertones. Flavour is husky grainy pale malt, soft lemony undertones, mild pithy bitterness in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, just-right carbonation. A solid North American pilsener, and a tasty light beer. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2010
[3130-20100715] 473mL can. Sweet corn husks aroma. Clear, yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Grainy corn haystacks flavour has a lingering sweet grainy aftertaste. Medium body. Bland.

(From LCBO-Summerhill; w/ jerc)
Can [473ml]. Pours a clear bubbly pale gold with a large somewhat-lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of light grassy hops, grain, biscuity malt and some honey sweetness -- decent. Flavour’s light but nice, starting with a good amount of grassy hops (for the style) with a good malt backbone, some light honey sweetness, fruit and a decent bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. I’m sure they added "Light" to the name to get the Ontario sales but it’s unnecessary as many Pilseners are on the lighter abv side as it is and also to their credit, it’s on style, something some other Ontario Pilseners aren’t -- I’ll be getting more as it’s a great Summer beer.

Can 473 ml HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JUN 3, 2010
Aroma : wet grainy nose with secondary light grassy hop feel. Mild.
Appearance: clear straw gold with large bright whit top.3+
Flavour and Palate: medium bodied. Clean golden soft malt feel with good frontal and top hop character. Refreshing raw leafy finish. Crisp with dry end. Softer mid. Quiet good.
Sampled at Cowbell May 25, 2010 (from bottles, I think). Hazy bubbly gold, average white head. Pleasant dry floral aroma, mild grainy sweetness, but clean (6+). Taste is simple - a hint of apple sweetness, dry and floral-bitter, very well balanced (no alcohol of course) - what Coors probably should taste like (sorry JoeT). Average body - surprising in a "light" beer, quite lively and crisp, with a perceptible bitterness that doesn’t fade immediately - they do themselves an injustice by calling this a "light" beer - just a Pils, thank you very much. I will look for a six of this for a weekend balcony session where I want some maintenance beers between hop/ABV monsters - recommended, if fresh. robinvboyer (4754) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2010
Yellow pour, small white head. Light hops on the aroma with some light grains snd bready malts. A little wattery, but it’s a decent beer, a great summer patio quencher. Eructoblaster (4370) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Can - 473ml. Pale gold body with average carbonation and a thin white frothy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and flowery hints. Its light taste is slyghtly dominated by hoppiness. It carries some bready notes and ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Not bad for a light beer. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2010
473 mL can from LCBO, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.
App.: Clear light golden with a frail white head.
Aroma: Fruity, slightly perfumy malts, cereal/grain, decent for the ABV.
Palate: Medium body and effervescence.
Flav.: Similar to the nose with kinda weirdly fruity/perfumed malts, hints of slightly soapy hops that are also a little green and peppery; dry with some bitterness and a slightly mineral malt finish.
Not bad, I guess.
