King Ultra Premium Pilsner

This is delicious. Had one given to me without me knowing tonight and I thought it was a great beer from the US. Very well crafted. Kinda tastes like Anchor steam beer, but with a bit more hop flavour.

Sensational Ontario Beer.

Authentic European Style Pilsner
4.8% alc./vol.

True to style in every regard, this authentic Czech-style Pilsner is truely unique in North America.

The beer is brewed with an all imported Plisner malt, all Saaz hops and a true Czech yeast strain. The brewery uses only distilled water and remineralizes it to deliver an authentic taste every time.

The bright golden pilsner is a full-bodied, refreshingly great tasting beer. It delivers a soft texture, complimented by the proper balance of malt and Saaz hops. Its flavour begins with a pleasing malty or bready taste but is sufficiently hopped to impart a dry bitter tang with a very clean finish. This is a very inviting beer that compliments many foods and has enough body to compliment even the heaviest of meals. This complex beer provides a more flavourful yet true to style option to some of the more popular imports. Consumers are quoted as saying "there is not a beer in Canada that tastes like King Pilsner", or "this beer tastes like the true Pilsners in Europe"

King Pilsner is considered Ultra Premium because no expense is spared to produce this world-class beer. It is made with the best of ingredients, and most importantly the water is distilled and the mineral content adjusted to match the water table of the beers country of origin (in this case the Czech Republic). This provides a flavour profile that only the truest of Pilsners can match. These ingredients as well as King's proprietary process delivers one of the best tasting beers in the world!

We invite you to try our beer... and we challenge you to taste it beside the world's best Pilsners.

I just had a Great Lakes Green Tea Ale. It was quite refreshing, and perfect for a patio session on a hot day like today.

Urthel Tripel
Wow is this delicious.
9% beer, but triple hopped, apparently (online documentation does not include this detail).
Tastes like a great, smooth 5% beer, but with a double hit of alcohol.
Very easy drinking, which is surprising considering its weight.

Rating: Highly Recommended
Available: On Tap @ Kick-Off

Alexander Keith's White
Run away as fast as you can.
Really, it's not good.
Please, do not say "I have to try it to see if it is as bad as it sounds."
It is, trust me.
Compare Rickard's Pale, to Keith's Pale. Rickards = 10x better than Keith's
Multiply that by another 10 and you know how much Keith's White sucks.

Robert,

You have a fine tongue. Couldn't agree more on both fronts. We need to consume more beer together sir.

Yeah, I think last year their beer was around 23%

I love how they are claiming that brewing science is improving in an industry that's been around almost as long as civilization itself :D

I personally haven't been blown away by anything Samuel Adams has their name on... and I'd be extremely hard pressed to spend $150 on a bottle of beer... even if it was split 6 ways, just for one of those rare 'tasting' events. :wink:

Last bottle of beer I spent 100+ on was worth every cent. Steve can verify. I would never in my life spend 100+ on a Sam-Adams beer through. All least mine has some history of being brought back and forth from Germany to France to undergo the champagne making process or some crap :P

On a side note, it probably taste likes shit because of all the alcohol. Just my guess.
Oh Hi Dere... welcome to my sig!
