Lubiere (13051) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2009
A golden pils with a thick white head. A perfumey malt aroma, with light cinnamon and nutmeg notes. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with light mineral notes, crisp and smooth, a bit harsh and grainy. Medium bodied. On tap at Hart and Thistle, Oct. 12 2009.

Scopey (12991) - 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.

deyholla (10395) - 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.

jercraigs (10000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2008
2008-06-12. Crisp golden yellow body with a foamy white head. (3+) Sweetish aroma of noble hops, quite floral, light grassy notes. Flavour has similar hops, floral, grassy - just a great fresh Saaz profile, and I am not even a big fan of Saaz hops. Light grass, mildly sweet pale malt base. Smooth average palate. A very solid pilsener! Not my favorite style, but this was very nice. Surprised how much I liked this. Bottle from OKBeer

DuffMan (9637) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Clear bright yellow gold. A great showcase of how lovely fresh Saaz hops can be. Full of fragrant floral character, clean and crisp lager base. Delicious!

MartinT (9499) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2007
Thanks to geth_in_beer for this one. Bright amber-gold beer with a large white head. Fairly fatty malt aroma with a bit of honey and light dustiness. A bit of floral/noble hop aroma. Thinnish body with a nice flinty bitterness. It’s not a great example, but it’s decent. Needs a whole lot more hops to be a true BoPils.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
[1493-20080612] 341mL bottle. Straw-like grains aroma is a bit toasted. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy straw base flavour is bland. Light-medium body has a slight bitterness. Nice for the style.

Bottle (341ml) courtesy of jerc. Pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma’s slightly sugary sweet along with yeast, fruit, light saaz hops and bready malt -- not too shabby smelling for a Pilsener. Flavour of sweet bready malt, some fruit, grain and a light bitter finish -- good, could be a tad more flavourful though. Medium bodied. A pretty good version of the style.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle (341ml). Courtesy of tupalev. Light amber pour, decent frothy white head, nice bubling and a touch of cloudiness. Floral and grainy, sweet and oddly fruity aroma. The taste - man that’s interesting - sharply bitter and I swear it tasted like only slightly sweetened rhubarb preserves - tart, acidic and fruity - man I like that!. Light body, sharply carbonated and plenty of lasting acidity, reminded me vaguely of a light ESB but with that huge bitter rhubarb. Long bitter aftertaste, but I like it!
