Tasting Notes

The Inhaled Affirmative pours gold, with a cloud-like domed and fluffy head. Herbaceous aromas rise to greet your nose, with subtler notes of wheat and biscuit. On the palate it’s crisp, lightly sweet and touched with bitterness. This Pilsner is dry and complex with a fast finish, leaving you ready for another sip. 


Modeled in the Czech style, featuring Saaz hops and a firm light malt backbone. Czech style Pilsners use Saaz hops – known for their floral and spicy character. This Pilsner has lots of solid malt character as well that plays nicely with the hops.
You know it. You love it. It’s THE definition of an Atlantic Canadian – that intake of breath, followed by a quick, “Yah! Yah! Yah!” You’ll be saying the same wen you quaff this classic easy-drinking pilsner: bright, clean & perfectly crisp. Pair ‘er up with a Donair! 

Our Thoughts

A herbaceous take on a Czech-style Pilsner; fresh and clean with sweet grassy notes on the nose and the palate is both dry and herbal with a lemon rind-like bitterness. Some snappy floral hops shine through the bitter backbone to firmly solidify out an all-around crisp and easy-drinking Pilsner.
