2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a pale golden color w/ a shallow spritzy froth that reduces to a thin lace. Aromas of malt and grain w/ a defined skunkiness. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers creates a cotton texture. Flavors are basic malts and grains but it does have the tell tale bitter finish of a Pils. However, not a recommendable specimen.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Clear gold with a white head. Aroma, it has that distinct imported green glass smell to it. I won’t elaborate, we’ve all been there. Flavor, tastes like nothing but that skunk in the room. So glad I picked this up.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I expected this green-bottled beer to be skunky (it wasn’t). Still, it seemed a bit thick for the style, and as far as "green bottle Euro lagers" go, I really prefer Pilsner Urquell.
It poured a handsome golden color with decent head formation, which left no lacing. It smelled good; not in a "big beer" sense, but it was light and refreshing. Taste and mouthfeel were not all that great though. It was thicker than I felt it should be, and not really refreshing at all. Taste was not off-putting, but seemed syrupy almost, which was not was I expecting (a light and refreshing lager).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow coloured, with an average white head, and some carbonation. Hoppy grassy and malty aroma; medium body. Finish is little bitter hoppy. Medium premium Lager.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much aroma or distinctive flavour. Almost neutral, very minimal hops. A weak pilsner as far as flavour and aroma are concerned.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint can at Albertson’s.
Aroma is kind of a celophane-like plastic, but other than that nada. Hardly smeels like anything made of a beer ingredient.
The body is a bright gold, clear and supports a fairly lasting white head that is frothy, but mostly composed of varying sizes of bubbles.
Watery fore is mostly flavorless before it finishes with a lightly sweet malt note. Not worth your time or money. It does have a somewhat decent mouthfeel for the style, but since it tastes of so little what is the point?

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 500 mL can: This just tastes like dozens of other lages on the LCBO shelves. Nothing remarkable here: think Stella, Heinken, Faxe, etc.. After Ekstra & Headstrong, this just tastes way too thin. YEARS LATER ON TAP: i run my own experiment - a pint that tastes like corn, and other harsh chemical ingredients, awful aftertaste, very pale, this is bad .. . . THEN A FRESH PINT OF STEAMWHISTLE - flavour, quality ingredients, it actually looks darker and tastes far superior . . . a pint of Bavaria as a chaser might make you appreciate STEAMWHISTLE more! life is too short, drink a STEAMWHISTLE

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours out typical gold, somewhat pale. Aroma of stale heinekins. The taste was uninspiring. Cheap rip off. OK beer for odd occassions, or given to me for free. Other that that I dont buy/drink it.
