3.78/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Labeled as "The American Dream", but it seems to be this one here. Best before 12/9/2014.
Hazy amber, one finger foam with good retention.
Smells incredible! Honey and caramel, butterscotch, faint vanilla bean, huge green hops, with pine, orchard fruit, some tropical notes and grapefruit.
Some dry grainy malts, stampeded by green notes and fruit. Lots of tasty citrus (tangerine, pomelo, lime, plus peel), tropical passion fruit, pineapple, lychee. Some floral notes too, then aggressively "green" bitter hops: pine resin, green grass, very mineral. Gets a dry tobacco/faintly metallic pilsner-like bitterness afterwards, especially in the aftertaste.
Medium carbonation, creamier than your average Czech pilsener. Bitterness stay with you for a very long time. Fruitiness gets harder and harder to detect, taking the crispness away too.
Very tasty, a big (maybe too big) plate of tasty bitter hops. Haven't had enough of Mikkellers yet, but i hope his brews don't rely solely on hops, risking to be too similar. I expect a bit more than that from such expensive beers.

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured a slightly hazy golden honey colour. Slightly off white head poured big, thick and foamy with a whipped meringue like top then faded slowly to a good one finger covering which lasted throughout... lots of sticky lacing patches coat the glass all the way down...

Aroma - Spicy tart fruits (oranges (peel?), pears), lots of floral honey, sea saltiness, chalky notes, some soapiness, peppery and grassy hop bitterness, very herbal - some hints of basil, some tobacco notes, cut wet grass, some buttery traces, slightly rubbery, some graininess...

Taste - Lots of grassy and peppery hop bitterness up front followed by lots of herbal notes, light biscuity malts, again some floral honey sweetness, quite nutty, marzipan traces, juicy fruits (bitter oranges, pears, apples, grapefruit), a hint of saline, some alcohol warmth just coming through, faint tobacco...

Feel - Pretty smooth and creamy with a little bite... medium bodied... very drinkable at only 4.6%

Overall - A superb brew and one that i wish i could get my hands on more easily... highly recommended..

330 mL bottle poured into beer vase.

A: Fairly clear pale gold, big white head that lingers and leaves excellent lacing. Beautiful beer.

S: Pine hops, citrus and a bit of funk.

T: Sweet light malts, pine hops followed by citrus and slightly bitter hop aftertaste. Sweetness lingers on lips.

M: Fantastic - medium light body, medium carb, feels full for a pils.

O: Wow. As someone who likes heavy beers like imperial stouts and double ipas, this blew me away. I never knew a pils could have this much flavor - the perfect amount of hops to balance the sweetness, but still lighter than a pale ale. Yum! I will definitely be trying to find a case of this...

330 ml bottle from LCBO picked up for $3.35 CDN. Alcohol content scratched out and separate label indicating 5.5% on this bottle. Served cold into a pint glass. Marked as "The Canadian Dream."

Appearance - Slightly hazy, golden orange / copper color with 2 fingers of frothy head. The head left nice streaky lacing all of the glass and lingered for more than a few minutes. Semi transparent once settled.

Smell - Big hop nose especially for a pilsener with pine notes, wood bark among other things. Also the grassy and grainy smell usually accompanying the style although these take a back seat to the aforementioned aromas.

Taste - Hops, piney and citrusy. Good bitter aftertaste. Evolves into more an earthy character but not at all displeasing. Sweetness lingers when you lick you lips. Yum.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and crisp, refreshing and the astringency is palate scrubbing. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall - Really nice beer that while retaining pilsener character also offers a crossover point with hopheads since the hops are quite prevalent here. A delicious beer that I would repurchase, but only once in a while given that even better beers (albeit in different styles) can be purchased for less.

4.25/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours with off-white thumb high foam, random bubbles, fast retention. Stays coated, leaves lots of random lacing. Color is golden orange, slightly hazy. Lots of carbonation. Pretty.

Smell: Hits you with tropical (passion fruit, melon, mango), citrus, grapefruit/pine hops. Some sweetness from the malt to compliment the strong tropical vibe - fresh candy, do want.

Taste: Pine gets stronger, still topical fruit, cut grass; then goes to light sweet biscuit malt middle - this sweetness goes really well with the fruity flavours from hop. Ends with quite heavy for this style, but lovely piney/grapefruit bitterness with some sweetness. Very IPA-ish.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing carbonation, medium body. Leaves a dry finish.

Overall: Goes down easy but still feels like a proper hop packed beer. Very well executed and interesting take on lager, i hope to see more like this in the future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours bright orange, a little darker than your average Pilsner. The head recedes quickly but provides foamy cover for the whole glass. The aroma is hop forward with herbal, floral continental hops mixing with a citrusy edge and sturdy biscuity malts. Juicy, herbal, grassy, citric hop flavors show in the first sip. Balancing malt sweetness is right on their heels, providing excellent balance. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a full, creamy carbonation level. Moderate bitterness and floral, woody hop flavors make up the longish finish.

This is a kick ass Pilsner. It has a unique hop profile with more emphasis on citrus than the average Pilsner. Very complex and quaffable, near perfect balance. A must try.

mikkeller can really do no wrong, finally found one I haven't had ( I know, there are millions, but I am always in search of). this one is going by "dream pils" now. pours a darker than expected almost copper shade of gold, with an inch of thick white head. it smells almost funky, like mikkellers usual Belgian yeast groove, as well as lighter pilsener malts. the flavor doesn't have any of that yeast to it though, and is quite balanced between the hearty grain bill (for the style) and the hops, which are bitter and prickly. carbonation is great, body is bigger than the standard, and the finish is long and grassy. this isn't one of mikkellers way out there beers, but more of a regular drinker that's very well made. I wish it was in affordable sixers, but I say that about must stuff mikkeller makes. when will that be a reality?

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Coming in a slim 330ml brown bottle, BB 30/04/2015, served chilled in a straight pilsner glass.

A: dark golden in colour with light haze, coming with a well-lasting layer of off-white froth and lively carbonation.
S: the aroma comes overwhelmingly hoppy, full of tropical fruits (guava, passion fruits, mango, etc.), aromatic grassiness, an assertive edge of sweet lemons, plus lactic sour-sweetness and gristy/biscuity pale malts.
T: effervescent, the foretaste is resinous and lovely tropical fruity (I wonder if Citra is used in this brew), highlighting zesty citrusness with a tannic tang on top of a mild malty backbone; soon turning clean/neat on the palate allowing plentiful hop bitterness to roam freely towards the finish… In many ways this beer is unlike any lager bier I’ve had, and really, with this level of flavours, there’s no need to remind oneself of what kinds of yeasts were used in the brewing process.
M&O: refreshing, medium bodied, the flavour profile is rich and colourful, accentuating hops of course. A well-crafted, high-octave hoppy session lager ideal for any occasion, in my opinion.

Amber color with lots of thick off-white head with great retention and leaving laces.
Delicious citrus and floral aroma balanced with malt. Hints of peaches or lychees.
Nice upfront bitter taste, controlled malt sweetness balanced with grassy and floral hops. Notes of grapefruit and tangerines with its internal segment peels. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Excellent execution, balanced and flavorful. An improved Czech Pilsner slightly going towards an APA.

I don't think the constant rebranding of this beer is necessary. Nevertheless, this is Canadian Dream, another name for the same beer from Mikkeller. From notes.

A - Poured hazy dark orange with a three finger fluffy white head. Strong carbonation, good lace rings, and a finger of retention.

S - Great grassy and skunky noble hops. Some citrus and peach too. Nice.

T - Grassy, grapefruit, dry grain.

M - Quite dry throughout with good carbonation, medium body and a dry finish.

O/D - A decent pils. Too dry though in the middle palate. Seemed to take away from the flavour. A nice pils otherwise and I could have a few.

Mikkeller Dream Pils has a very thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a hazy, gold-orange appearance, with lots of little tan yeast chunks suspended throughout, strong, streaming bubbles, and a very thick, sticky lacing (more like a coating) left behind on the glass. The aroma is of strong, pungent, sweet bread crust, caramelized sugar, citrus peel, and hop oil. Taste is of sweet, bready malt, citrus peel, pine, hop oil, and cut grass. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick (or oily). Mikkeller Dream Pils finishes dry, bitter, sweet, and bold. Overall, this is a very tasty beer, and I highly recommend it!

Bottle labeled "The Canadian Dream'
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A: Straw in color with a nice orangey hue and is almost clear. Pours to a huge, frothy tan head that lasts a long time; it never really dissipates completely and looks like a dense, frothy floating collar. Lots of lacing!

S: Mild…. Some hop spiciness, a bit floral with some lemon and coriander notes, some sweet malt. Enticing!

T: Very smooth on the palate, a nice balance of spicy bittering hops and malt. The finish is long and dry and while not completely clean, it is not overly bitter.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: A delicious beer that is balanced quite nicely.

Appearance: big frothy head stays strong until the last drop; very active carbonation, like a fountain of bubbles; light copper colour, clear

Aroma: strong citrus and pine hops - very fresh and not too bitter; fresh lemon; touch of syrup; wheat

Taste & Mouthfeel: mild start, with bread, lemon zest, mineral water keeping things light and refreshing, then spruce hops slowly glide in to make for a lasting and vibrant finish; good transition of flavours, everything balanced well, no one element overpowering

Overall: just about a perfect pilsener, crisp and dry, with a little more hops than you might expect; fresh and pure tastes of mineral, grain, and pine give it a feel of truly coming from the land

Amber-blonde colour, 2 fingers of white head, lots of lace all the way down the glass. Smell is a mix of crisp crackery malt, citrus and an earthy floralness, hoppy with some lemon and melon/honey dew and a bit of peach. Taste starts of with a crisp malt before getting into dry earthy hop flavours, lemony citrus, fairly bitter. Med drying carbonation, lightly oily witha crisp medium body. A nice hoppy beer but seems to be fairly similar to most euro/danish IPA's I have come across.

I've enjoyed nearly every beer I've had from Mikkeller so I was quite happy to see this sitting on the shelves of the LCBO. Next to no information in regards to style is indicated on the label so I'm excited to see what's inside.

Its unfiltered golden amber body is topped with a finger's worth of off-white head. It's fairly creamy and recedes gradually leaving thick legs of lace behind.

Tangerine, lemon peel, and fresh grass lie at the center of the nose. It's zingy and fruity. Lying almost equal to this is a sweet bready character infused with toffee. The aroma is wonderfully balanced. The more whiffs I take, the more I notice the grassy hop character coming out on top.

Fresh and raw grass clippings rush to the middle of the palate while being shadowed by the peels of lemons. A sweet but subtle breadiness serves as the underlay. There's a flash of tangerine midway through but this is short lived as the end nears. The finish is dry and grassy with a mineral-like bitterness. It's quick and it's clean.

This Pilsner is a tad heavier than most in its category. The carbonation is spongy and could be amped up but it's still good as is. The lingering grassy bitterness in the finish is the trademark for the style.

Overall, a good Pilsner that unfortunately didn't meet my expectations. It's got a good look with a great aroma but the feel of the beer threw the flavour off. A lawn cutting beer for sure but not one to form a judgement on Mikkeller.

Bottle of Canadian Dream from LCBO into tumbler.

A golden toffee brown with one inch of fine solid head. Good lacing with retention. Streams of carbonation.

The aroma is very mild. A hint of sweet bread and grassy hops.

The weak smell does not match the big taste. Hops dominate here with lots of grassiness and citrus marmalade. A bitter after taste that was still with me two hours later.

The is a strong bite of carbonation but it a bit watery.

Overall underwhelming. This beer is not well balance and lacks a strong enticing aroma.

Overall, this is a very nice pilsner. I liked it more than I had anticipated. Could be that I just returned from a run, but this is a damn delicious, refreshing pils.

Appearance - Pours a nice, clear golden honey color with a 1-1.5 finger foamy head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves little lacing. It is, however surprisingly carbonated.

Smell - It smells as you would expect from a Czech style pils. Wheat with a little bit of funk, present hop aroma, and an ever so faint smell of lychees (can't really explain that one, but that's what I smell).

Taste - Pretty delicious, overall. Wheat and hop forward. Surprisingly present hops lend a bitter orange flavor. Lingering wheat and hop flavor.

Mouthfeel - light but still some creaminess to it, very nice carbonation.

Overall - Delicious. I would buy this again for a hot summer day. I would say it's underrated for the style.

Hazy amber the pours a big head that settles to a long-lived and substantial cap that surrenders lots of lace. A handsome beer.

A very fruity beer with big hops, but a lot of malt sweetness that offsets the bitterness of the hops. Somehow almost creamy in character, which is unusual. Appetizing grapefruit nose, that carries through to the taste, which also has sweet honey-like character.

A decent enough beer, but a couple of disconnects; I'm thinking there's no way this is a pilsner and my bottle reads Canadian Dream at 5.5% not Danish Dream at 4.6%. Maybe a naming/reviewing template mix-up?

The Canadian Dream is not red and white though I suppose it would qualify as amber - a more orangey-amber but close enough. (Originally sold as 'the Danish Dream' the colour scheme would have had to have been the same.) Its head is ultra foamy and impressively stacked; it paints the glass with thick brushstrokes, like a Tom Thomson landscape.

The aroma smells pungent, grassy, herbal, as if it were inspired by British Columbia. Some soapy lemon notes and vague florals are appreciated too, but the bouquet has more than enough of a ganja-like tinge that the Trailer Park Boys would definitely approve.

The taste introduces a dry, sweet cereal graininess that is more reminiscent of golden prairies. The malt has hints of toffee and biscuit that pair nicely with the candied citrus and grass flavours; the profile switches between the two as often and quickly as a hockey puck changes ends.

The beer has an earthiness that David Suzuki could appreciate; aftertastes of pine serum and grass endure on the finish. Ample carbonation works at Donovan Bailey-like speed to scrub the palate clean of alpha-acids, but those are John Candy-sized resins and don't budge easily.

Mikkel Borg Bjergsø produces more crap each year than Lorne Michaels; similarly, like just about any episode of Saturday Night Live, 90% of it is either failed or rehashed ideas, although, on occasion, you witness something so memorable that it keeps you coming back for more...

Mikkeller's Canadian(/American/Danish) Dream is nice but also forgettable, a reminder that beer, like anything else, can be a numbers game - brew every single recipe that comes to mind and inevitably a few will turn out extraordinary, more will flop, and most will end up somewhere in between. That broad, all-embracing median is exactly where I'd place this offering.

Copied Johny Barman's idea of celebrating today's national holiday; Canada Day. Find it somewhat amusing that Mikkeller renamed the beer for the Canadian market, but the LCBO still needed to add a label to each bottle with the 5.5% ABV and the fact it's a "beer/biere"...

Not entirely certain how it became classified as a "Czech pilsener", so I am rating based on my enjoyment rather than how it matches the traditional style. Pours a tawny golden amber, with a slight haziness and good retention in the minimal head. Excellent aroma of American-style, "west coast" hops - mango and pineapple behind the caramelized malts. The fruit tones carry into a marmalade element in the body, which ends (and lingers) with a decent bitterness.

A very pleasant surprise and a beer I'd highly recommend, albeit not to someone looking for a traditional Czech pilsener!

Marketed as "Canadian Dream", I picked up a few bottles of this for the Long Weekend.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Darker than your typical pils, a sort of tawny copper brew with an inch of fluffy foam that dissolves into a substantial layer with lots of lacing. Nice looking brew, though not your standard looking, crisp clear golden pilsner.

Nose is noble hop, good grainy component, with a malty sweetness. Floral notes and honey as well.

Tasty variation on the pilsner theme with some nice sweet cracker and biscuit, honey and floral hops to start things off, then a long bitter hop finish. Very nice, good assertive punch of hops to the finish which lingers long after each sip.

Thicker bodied, a bit sticky, nice creamy carbonation. Nice sipping brew.

A highly enjoyable, unique take on the pilsner style. Not the bright, crisp and clean brew that made Bohemia famous, however, but still a satisfactorily bitter, flavorful brew.

12oz Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $3.25

Appearance - Clear copper colour with a massive size off-white coloured frothy head. There is very high amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5-6 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and hops. There is also some grapefruit and some herbal grassy notes. It ends with a hoppy malty herbal aftertaste.

Overall – Kind of like an english IPA taste wise. This would probably work well as a session beer. Not terribly exciting, but a nice malty flavour and a good amount of hop bite. I probably won't buy more, but worth a try for sure.

Blam-o! ...And I just lost ½ the bottle (and ½ my paper towels) upon opening in a volcanic-like eruption of which I haven’t witnessed before. This one just couldn’t wait to get to Canada.

(4.25) A: Beautiful hazy apricot-copper colour with a sizeable puffy and cream head. Recedes to a thin blanket and collar with wonderful lacing.

(4.25) S: Honey, grains, floral elements, sweeter fruits (banana), and a good mix of spices. Nice and sweet with a subtle grainy background aroma. Diverse and full bodied.

(3.75) T: Crackery grain, light citrus fruits, floral-herbal hints, light toffee, and bitter spices. Unfortunately those fruits aren’t quite as prominent as they were in the aroma. Solid bitterness.

(3.75) M: Medium-light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slight gritty texture with slickness. Welcoming dryness.

(4.0) D: This is very good and very easy-to-drink and yet still flavourful enough to savour. After making the entrance that it did – all is forgotten.

BB 09/10/15, which seems a bit generous. This is labelled "Canadian Dream" and the LCBO labs peg it at 5.5% abv.

Beer is a hazy orange/golden. Moderately sized white head, decent retention.

Smell contains toasted biscuity malt, rather crisp. Strong hop presence, citrus notes prominent.

Fairly bitter, the hop presence is quite notable. Some citrus fruit flavours, but more grass. Bready malt flavours. Aftertaste is quite bitter. A little bland for me.

Light bodied, strongly carbonated. Irritating.

Overall, not bad, but not really my cup of tea.
