2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ Hostex: My due diligence warning - tasting this the day after King’s Pils at the brewery is probably not going to bode well for Stonehammer. Pours nice - vibrant yellow, good carbonation, with a bountiful marshmallow white head. Aroma is of fruit, perhaps apple, with malt. Flavour is very dry with adequate hoppy bitterness, and splashes of sweetness to balance things out. Quite accessible as a pale lager, but not terribly true to style.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 On tap at the Woolwich Arms in Guelph The aroma was funky honey
pours a pale ambernot much head or lacing The taste was fairly mild and i am unsure whether the keg was old or not so this one will need to be revisited at some point
Ok tasting number two wow what a difference
330ml bottle from the brewery courtesy of Lisa
Pours a orangey amber with a small white head
The aroma is awesome for pilsner
Honey and malts
The taste has that familiarity of F & M about it
Honey and I don’t know but wow is it good one of the best pilsners I have ever had

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle. Pours a very light yellow, minimal head. Aromas of honey, white grape, peach. The taste is white grape too, slightly grassy. Sweet finish, a little pencil lead, with faint bitter hops. I’m not a lager guy, but this is pretty decent. Would buy again when the weather turns warm.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This seemed like a bad ale to me not a Pilsener. Thin head. Malty, almost roasty aroma. Too sweet and lacking character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A yellow, headless brew with sweet pilsner aromas of cereal, cut grass and malt. The thin and almost flavourless front and middle leads to a woody, bitter finish, and boasts refreshing qualities that bring to mind a mixed greens salad sans dressing. Light carbonation, coupled with a humid, hazy afternoon helps get this beer down in a hurry. The finish would turn off the swill-swilling masses, so you could haul a six-pack to the pool and feel confident in finishing what you’ve started.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle, 5% a/v
From the bottle, pours a very light, almost champagne/straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malty, with hints at wheat, spice, and straw. The taste of the beer is a nice clean pils, a bit fruity, a little bit spicy on the finish, very nice flavour. Only problem is this beer is very watery.. it has a nice flavour, but theres just not enough of it.

On tap at The Loop, in Toronto. Hazy golden colour with medium white head. Aroma is fruity, with decent hops. A refreshing beer without being the best out there.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light blonde looks like any other pilsener, but has a reasonably complex and full flavour. Some malt and a nice refreshing finish.

341 mL bottle. Pours gold with a lacy white cap. Grainy malt with straw and toasty barley. Lightly sweet without as much bitterness as I expect for the style. A hint of herb like hop. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation.
