fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Draught at the brewpub
Blond color; creamy head. It has an interesting hoppy aroma, almost manure. Some malt flavor, a touch of hay, dry mouthfeel, also because of the extreme bitterness, with a good grassy hopping. The final is long, maybe just a bit harsh. Not stylish, but appreciated.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Crisp pale yellow body with a small creamy white head, and nice lacing. (3+) Floral noble hops, grassy straw notes. Light lemon note in the flavour, similar hops to the aroma with floral grassy bitterness. Average palate. A pretty solid pilsener!

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
Clear straw colour with a frothy white head. Clean grainy aroma, slightly sweet. Refreshing grainy palate with subtle hop character and a soundly bitter finish. Very good.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2008
[816-20071105] Tap @ Wildwood (Calgary, AB). Mild sweaty yeast aroma has something edgier lurking in the background. Clear, yellow body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Grassy yeast hops flavour has a leafy aftertaste. Light-medium body. Interesting twist to a pilsener, would also do well with a citrus complement.

Braudog (6582) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Draft pint at the brewpub; They bring this out in a gigantic goblet ... gotta be 20 oz of beer, tender says its 1/2 liter ... (holy crap, OK, I shared it with the wife). Deep red-tinged gold color with a light starchy nose. Nice balance ... malty, to be sure, but also with a pleasant Bohemian hoppy bite to round it off. Goes great with the awesome fish and chips I had! (#2875, 5/13/2007)

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 16, 2006
Pale golden color, thin white head. Sweet grainy nose with a just a faint touch of hops. Grainy thin mouth, lemon dry finish. Better then Molson and definetely aimed at BMC drinkers.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
(Draught) Sampled on February 8, 2008, at the brewpub. Long lasting, white head with a gold mildly carbonated body. Nose is crisp, corn and wheat. Flavour is nicely balanced with a very pleasant European malt and saaz hops.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2006
Crisp clear gold apearance. No real aroma. Thin body and flavour except for the sharp rough bitter hop finish. The hops grow on you as you drink this beer. Overall I found it too clean like hoppy water.

Cavie (4586) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Clear golden pour. Aroma of some banana and grass. Taste is upfront hops that remain through the finish. Turns a bit sweet in the middle but quickly fades. Better than your average.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Quite a bit of cabbage in the nose (though not nearly as much as in the Golden Ale) but also some notable graininess and a hint of grassy, lightly spicy hop character. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to a lasting cover and laces very nicely. Moderate bitterness and clean malt flavour just about conceal the light cabbage flavour. Crisp, fine bubbled effervescence that awakens the tongue. Refreshing, medium-light body. Comes across to me as a pils in the German vein and quite a decent one at that. Sampled on tap at the restaurant.
