Pilsner is a very Western Canadian Beer I am pretty sure they do not get that even back in eastern central Canada so hard to believe it would be sold in the U.S. outside of border cities/towns.
Nothing better for a hangover out camping than a Pil' and Clamato.

Ugh...Pilsner? Yuck. lol That Coors' Banquet isn't bad though.

Not sure if it still exists or not but Pilsner from Saskatchewan was pretty awesome, or Bohemian. Big rock had some decent beers that I think you can find in the USA, but nothing like the names you mentioned. Honestly I preferred American brewed beer anyhow, the export brands all tasted bad to me back when I did try those.

Great beer. I often have to remind a friend of mine in Regina (a die-hard Riders fan) that his Riders' beer originated in Alberta.

Molson Golden is not available here in B.C. I think it's just made for the US market? Anyone know? I also did a quick search on the Ontario Liquor boards website, and it's not listed there either.

It's only available in the US according to the Molson Coors website, just like Molson Export is only available in Canada...

So what's the difference between Molson Golden and Molson Export? As was explained to me by a Molson rep who was visiting the (Ontario) Beer Store I was working at years ago: Same recipe, except Export is pasteurized, while Golden is cold-filtered. That was about it. And it seemed true enough--Golden tasted like Ex with the rough edges filed off.

I miss Golden. The Old Style Pilsner (with the bunny on the label, referenced upthread) we get here in western Canada is a close approximation of Ex though, so if they ever made a cold-filtered Pil, it would probably taste like Golden.
