I have a soft spot in my heart for this beer, having consumed it in copious quantities over the years. Let's be clear - Pil is no different than any other mass-produced Canadian beer. It's clear, with a foamy head and your standard macro lager taste. At one point, it was priced like a "budget" beer, but that's no longer the case. I'm not even sure if there are bunnies on the label any more. It's a sad state of affairs...

Pilsner pours a light yellow, and has a soapy head. The taste is bizarre depending on what can you drink. I found that the beer tasted like melted glue and depending on the can, it has a harsh taste that leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Wouldn't recommend.

473 ml can served cold into a Keith's pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for about $2 CDN.

Appearance - clear and pale golden color. Few bubbles but capped by a finger and a bit of white fluffy head that leaves a trace of lacing.

Smell - some grassy notes, but not terribly aromatic even for the style.

Taste - grassy up front, then more grainy on the back end. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Decent pils, but not terribly exciting.

Mouthfeel - medium body and carbonation is a bit low. Medium finish.

Overall - not a bad effort at a pils, but there are many other options available for about the same price.
