Sampled on tap at Fionn Macool's - very pleased to find a pub with the good taste to have Paddock Wood on tap. This is a very enjoyable Pilsener - clear, golden, with a nice floral/citrus/Saaz nose. There are plenty of layers to the flavours here. The biscuit malt provides a good base, there are grapefruit whispers, and a lovely, mouth-pleasing hop finish. This is easily one of my favourite Canadian-made Pilseners.

Pours light gold with around three fingers of off-white head. Aroma is biscuit malt and floral, spicy hops with a touch of citrus tang. Taste is surprisingly complex, a hops forward pils with Saaz spice but also some light grapefruit with a lingering bitter finish. A touch of white grape and sour candy. Nice oily mouthfeel. Really complex and interesting for a pils, almost ale-like in terms of fruity notes which presumably derive from the hops. Purists might quibble a bit but in my view this is what a good pils should involve: Obvious pale malt but also some hoppy punch to add nuance. Nice work and perhaps Paddock Wood's best along with Loki.

Poured from the bottle into a sam adams pint glass.

Creamy and three finger fluffy white head, good retention and staying power. Brassy yellow clear body, almost pale amber, with little rising carbonation at all.

Nose is mellow citrus lemon and lime. Some classic grass like hop, bakery bready malts and candy store almost minty fresh. Really nice.

Taste follows the nose and a wonderful balance. Good sweetness, matching citrus and candy grapefruit. A little bit of baby aspirin. Mouthfeel, is dense but little carbonation, good malt backbone coating. Grass angle seems lost but so much imteresting and nicer flavors I dont mind.

Overall, very memorable, very different for this style also, quite enjoying this, would love more.

Poured into a flared pilsner glass, with a big head of froth, which lingered, receding slowly, carbonation is initially quite lively, and remains quite strong. Colour is of a bright gold.

Nose is what I would expect of a pils, touch of crisp mineral smell.
Flavour is quite enjoyable. It has some nice balance here. It is quite refreshing and flavourful.
Mouthfeel is medium, with a good balance of bitterness. Goes down smoothly. Leaves a bit of a tongue-coating bitter finish.
Overall its an easy-drinking, flavoursome pilsner, without obvious flaws, refreshing and not over the top bitter. Enjoyed it.
