Product description

Old Style Pilsner is a medium body lager that is true to its Western Canadian roots. It has not changed since our beer was first brewed in 1926. Why? It’s right there on the bottle…“old style”. Those are more than just words on a beloved label. Being true to who we are has kept our drinkers loyal and kept Pilsner from being a fad.

    I love Old Style. I recently rediscovered it and I can't see myself switching any time soon. Delivered in a timely fashion with no problems.

    My Dad drank it everyday for his entire life. And if I feel like :beer: it's got to be this one. Crisp, fresh, strong. Never tasted like watery or hardly there beer. Excellent product I would pay more for it in a heartbeat.

    Foul after taste which permeates the beer throughout. Only redeeming feature is that it makes other beers taste that much better when you stop drinking this swill.

FAQs

Want the short answer? A pilsner is a lager beer on the hoppier end of the spectrum. If we're getting a little more technical, pilsners have extra Saaz (aka "noble") hops that were added in response to beer spoilage back in Pilsen in the before times. But that doesn't matter to you now as a pilsner sipper. All you need to know is that these extra-crisp, souped up lagers can be some of the most delicious beers you'll ever experience, especially on a hot summer day (or any time really).
Expect a typical pilsner to contain about 4% to 5% ABV (alcohol by volume).
A classic German-style pilsner is straw to pale in color with a balanced sweetness in both smell and taste. Hop bitterness (specifically noble hops) tends to be medium to high.
While you might associate German lagers with big old crockery steins, a pilsner glass is actually a fairly delicate thing. They tend to be smaller than your standard 16 ounce shaker pint, and they are tapered, slender and tall. The narrower glass is meant to show off the color and carbonation of the beer, while a slightly broader mouth helps maintain the foamy head.
