355ml can (less than a twoonie, I can't imagine buying the whole 36-pack), from the Real Canadian Liquor store - most likely just a re-packaging of one of the other 4 'pilsners' that this outfit already produces.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of weakly puffy, bubbly, and mostly just fizzy dirty white head, which leaves absolutely nothing in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of wet cardboard, thin grainy malt, stale corn husk, industrial phenols (so, the Minhas house yeast, then), apple juice that's been left out on the counter (or under the stove - if you have a toddler, you'll understand) for too long, and a bit of the hell that bad hops go to. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, a weirdly acrid corniness, thin (like that makes it better) nail polish remover, more bland apple/pear fruity notes, and no hops of any sort of which to speak (and I really kinda wanted to).

The carbonation is damned near nonexistent in its AWOL frothiness, the body a poor-ass middleweight, and not particularly smooth, though I admittedly have no real reason for saying so - just 'cause, I guess. It finishes trending dry, in the sense of that recent renovation paint job you did to spruce up the basement.

Overall, I'm not going to parse through my old reviews of the other 'pilsners' from this LCD brewery, in the aim of determining the provenance of this newest heaping pile of dogshit. Suffice it to say, this falls duly in line with my memory of yer average fare from Minhas, and that's the best thing that I can say about this offering, other than, fuck you Manjit, for once again claiming this to be anything like the real deal.
