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.

3.5/5  rDev -0.8%

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.

Re-reviewing this beer. 473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from the LCBO for $2.80 CDN.

Appearance - rich golden color, with bubbles aplenty and a finger and a half of frothy white head. Good retention time and some trace elements of lacing left around the rim of the glass. Crystal clear too.

Smell - grainy aroma with a small dose of grass and flower blend. Nothing unusual but with a Czech Pilsner, would you really expect there to be? Also sweet bready aromatics.

Taste - breach and yeasty as compared to others in the style and a fairly sharp crispness to the bread and grain flavours. Very refreshing on a hot summers day.

Mouthfeel - well carbonated and slightly dry finish.

Overall - a well crafted Czech Pilsner that is worth repeating and stacks up well against some of the German and Czech representations of the style.

-appearance:
a bronzey coppery gold, poured into a normal american pint glass. not a pile of carb, but good head. about 1/2 an inch , decent retention, we'll see about lacing.
(yep. theres lace..but its just a little bit)

-smell:
heavy on the grains. but with a pile of hops to match. very good nose.

-taste:
as i said in appearance the carb isnt over powering , but just present enough to be there. starts off hoppy. pretty sharp. slight hint of the slightly higher abv. nothing to be afraid of tho, a pretty decent pilsner for a "domestic" in a czech style. as the can's images promise. and equal balance of grains and hops. leveled out with a malt base.
easily drinkable. and pretty damn good.

-mouthfeel:
has a sharp start. which is expected of the style. retains is hoppyness throughout, unlike some lower end pilsners that fade and get flat feeling near the half mark this offering has sharp side right down to the last drop. a good selling point for myself.

-overall:
I like this. it's got more charecter than alot of pilsners that attempt to match the style, it has one factor that i really like..the fact that it isnt over foamy..some pilsner goes a bit overboard on the head..but this is subtle.its like a softer version of stiegl. but retaining all of it's best charectaristics.if available i'd say dont pass this one up if you are a fan of the style. and based on my other reviews its probably obvious im a pilsner jock. and this makes the grade..there are others who i prefer over it..but its definatly great. try one today. matches great with spicey foods.
