Pale Pilsner (Old Credit Brewing)

This was another taste from Toronto. Too bad: it is hard to find good Pilsners out this coast.

Pale Pilsner (Old Credit Brewing) = 7/10
Ratebeer 2.51 17th percentile
Beer Advocate 77%

Take this rating with a grain of salt, or malt, I don't care which. Pilsners can be very tasty beers, we rarely get to taste them. This is one of the tasty ones. It smells like nothing is up: light straw, grasses and water. Once the good carbonation cleans the tongue, the magic happens. Light grasses, honey and straw start the show with citrus, mineral and herbal hops charging from behind. There was a bit more hop snap than expected, then it just ended. A great Pilsner.
