Notes/Commercial Description:
Pilsner was first made back in 1842 by the Bohemians. They used special pale malt and an abundance of hops to create a delicious, golden beer. Up here at Creemore Springs we fire-brew our pilsner the same traditional way, using only four natural ingredients starting with our own clear flowing spring water. It’s eminently drinkable, and always refreshing. Classic yet unique; it’s our fresh take on a traditional Czech pilsner.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark gold with big head that disappears fairly quick.

It certainly smells like a pilsner--cut grass, celery, lemon. Big on the hops.

Crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Taste is a well-balanced bitterness, grapefruit, and a drop of honey. Very drinkable and very surprising. I had pretty well assumed that this would be a bomb, considering the Molson purchase. I'm glad to see that it hasn't yet affected the output of the brewery. That said, it doesn't really go out of its way to justify being a special edition or whatever it is. It's just a pilsner.

3.5/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type - 473ml Can poured into a pilsner glass

Appearance - Pours a crystal clear golden/straw coloured with 2 fingers of bright white foamy head which dissipates fairly quickly. A small bit of carbonation is visible. Next to no lacing i left behind.

Smell - Sweet grains are most predominant. I also detect some wet grass and a faint 'hoppy' smell.

Taste - Lot's of grains here as well. Pilsner malt features in a big way. Hop bitterness is light but balances nicely with the rest of the beer.

Mouthfeel - Clean and crisp and exceptionally dry finish. Lot's of carbonation and light body.
