151/799) Home:  Old Style Pilsner by Molson Coors of Ontario:  *1/2;  I first tried this in British Columbia in the late 1980s - it is a distinctive can and I hung on to it:  it indicates that even then it was a Molson product;  it is new to Ontario, however;  it is sweet and malty with absolutely no hint of hops save for a touch of bitterness to the nose;  since pilsners usually employ Saaz hops, I don't particularly miss the hops here;

152/800) Twisted Spruce by Highlander Brew Co. of Ontario:  *1/2;    6%;  brewed with spruce tips;  not quite so spruced as the Spruce beer I tried on Isle D'Orleans or Garrison's effort;  there is a balance of malt and spruce, with spruce substituting for hops;  Highlander is located in South River;
