decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is pilsener malt with earthy notes. Flavor is sweet corn and floral hops withe a dry/sweet finish. Light bodied with good carbonation. Clean crisp refreshing with a solid floral bitter finish.

deyholla (12583) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Pours a clear light gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of straw with grain and grass supporting. Flavor has a good amount of straw and sweet grain with a hint of grass.

sudomorph (1200) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 500ml bottle in Cape Breton. Pours a chill hazed golden yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, nuts, almost a touch of smoke, bread, and faint roast dark fruits. A lot darker flavours than the colour would lead. Taste is balanced with mild darker caramel, grain, traditional hops, and traces of dark fruits. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Fuller in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a lot more darker notes than I was expecting but very good.dark fruits, caramel, and almost a smoke.

chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Golden body with excellent clarity but a weak head. The aroma seems a little off but the flavor is quite good, leans to the hoppy side more than the average Canadian pilsner. Medium body with somewhat crisp carbonation.

cfrancis (3612) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
Got this in the Canadian BIF. Pours foggy straw yellow with a moderate white pillow. Aroma is sweet grains and light hop. Taste is much the same, solid beer. A little too sweet for me.

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This balanced Pilsener aligns cushy, lightly honeyed cereals with peppery hops, leading to a bittersweet finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty golden.
-This is a textbook North American-made Pils.
-The soft carbonation and higher-than-usual sweetness combine for an unauthentic texture.
-Peppery hops develop a nice bitterness.
-Drinkability is high.

On tap at a restaurant in Halifax.

Scopey (16263) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle in Parrsboro. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, rather doughy, grass, mild sweetness and cereal. The taste is crisp, bitter, minerals, grassy, white bread and just a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Good bitterness to it. Solid lager bier.

Belgrave (30) - Truro, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Gold colour with a lasting head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste starts hoppy but finishes malty. Long bitter aftertaste, but still a decent brew.

DomD (317) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of yeast. Pours a very clear pale with minimum head. Taste is light bitter. Light body, oily texture, and lively carbonation. Nice refreshing brew.

AgentAle (1850) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma is fragrant clove hop notes and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts with light honey and caramel notes. Fairly well balanced hoppiness but not overly complex. Some moderate creaminess. Appearance is a clear gold with a bubbly head that retains fairly well.
