Notes/Commercial Description:
Our brewmaster takes a full 28 days of great care and attention to detail to exact the balanced yet subtly complex character of this true Belgian Style Pilsner. Stanley Park Noble Pilsner is named for the careful blend of the noble hop varieties Hallertau-Mittelfrueh and Perle, which result in delicate and refined aroma and flavour. The use of these hops, 100% malt, a unique strain of yeast and carefully hand ground natural Belgian ingredients results in a mildly intense Pilsner with a remarkably pleasant finish.

Enjoyed a bottle snagged from a "make your own six pack" craft beer wall, poured into a Pilsener glass. A light lemon yellow brew with around three inches of white foam, with an aroma that very much recalls Heineken or perhaps Stella Artois but with no detectable skunk: Cracker and slightly sour green malts, a yeasty shortbread and dough sweetness, and vaguely spicy and floral hops. Palate closely approximates the aroma but with an added fruitiness that recalls lemon zest and apples, with hints of vanilla and menthol (Perle hops?). Very fizzy but fortunately does not sear the tongue, thin bodied but with a decent dose of residual sweetness. Finishes reasonably crisp but does leave a fruity sweet echo with mellow sweetgrass or hay emerging after a few sips. Not Belgian from a taste perspective, although I suppose there is a little spice in there. Perhaps this is indended to be a reference to craftsmanship. This beer is in fact a pretty good craftbrewed Euro pale lager with little of the DMS and skunked flavors you usually get with this style (its not a pils either ... nice work, wordemu). This is an appealing concept on a certain level, worth a look for those who like green-bottle imports.

Another decent lager that is on par with so many others in BC ( no one has a really great one). The colour, the nose , the clean finish hit the spot on a hot patio. I could drink a few of these and can't really fault it but hoped for more. No shame for a brewery that it starting to make some better beers.

I've had this a couple times. I realize it is a macro-brew pretending to be a micro.

It pours with a small white, bubbly head. The body is clear with a straw-yellow colour. The aroma is mostly of grain and lemon. The taste is heavy with a sweet malt. It has high carbonation and is a little watery.

Overall, I have come to associate Stanley Park Brewery with mildness and averageness.

330ml, sexy-contoured bottle. Just sayin'...

This beer pours a clear, bright pale straw colour, with a half-finger of thin foamy white head, which leaves pretty much nil in terms of persistent lace as it readily recedes from sight.

It smells of weedy, grassy hops, with some doughy, yeasty, malt sweetness. The taste is sweet cereal grain, mild kitchen yeast, some industrial lemon, and more dead, somewhat skunky, grassy, mulched leaf hops.

The carbonation is fairly sedate, just a gentle fizz, the body medium-light in weight, and generally quite smooth, no interlopers from the usual sources. It finishes off-dry, the generic cereal graininess running the show, amid the echo of the yeast that was to be.

If "Belgian" style pilsner means dumbing down the hop profile and adding a smidgeon of yeastiness, then what we have here is not only a new style, but a wholly unnecessary one. At least Belgian IPAs tend to retain the hop intensity of the base beer. Ok, Hell's Gate - state of the art, sustainability, all fine - how about focusing more on following through on your admittedly interesting marketing?

On tap at Beer Revolutions.

Appearance- Pours a pale straw yellow colour with a 1/2 finger width of foamy white head.

Smell- Grains, barley, citrus

Taste- Citrus is predominate followed by grainy malts. Crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A tad watery.

Overall- A refreshing pilsner. It is a little light on flavour. Definitely geared towards a hot summer day.

330 ml bottle poured into pint glass 25/1/12

A golden straw yellow with lots of bubbles but little for head or lace

S grassy hops with a little yeast, corn and skunky cereal

T some lemon on top of what I smell, tastes better with no skunk but still a little corn flake

M light, crisp and fairly refreshing, thin but satisfying

O great for a macro but that still leaves room for improvement

better then major brands but pretty basic for a craft brew, it went down quickly so that says something
