[5501-20130618] Tap. Fragrant doughy straw bales aroma hints a little at plastic. Slightly hazy, yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Smooth straw-infused yeast and soft grains flavour. Medium body. Quite tasty after a few sips to cleanse the palate. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

Draft to pils glass
While travelling, I needed to watch the opening match of Arsenal’s 2014 season. So I was off to an Arsenal supporters pub. Everything behind the bar was a macro. Oh no. Well it has been years since I’ve had a Steam Whistle, so I may as well rate it.
Aroma of urine, yes, wheat, sweetgrass, honey, and oats. Clear amber, medium effervescence, thin creamy white head. Taste is shit! Wheat, a little molasses, and skunk, funk, and junk. I don’t remember it being this bad, I’m sure this pub needs it’s lines cleaned.

Unfiltered on tap at the brewery. A cloudy light gold. Mild light pils malt aroma, bready goodness. Nice crackery light malts, crisp clean pilsner goodness. A nice example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Hazy pale amber with a scummy looking cream head; yeasty aroma; soft grainy body with a sweet yeasty taste; lacking finish and rather clinging. An interesting idea, and it’s good that you can compare this with a free sample of the filtered version.

Had at the brewery in Toronto. The filtered pilsner is pretty nice but the unfiltered is better! Nice cloudy beer. The taste is a little sweeter than the filtered version and is very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the National Capital Beer Festival. Hazy amber with white head. A very fresh and clean, easy to drink with very little sweetness or caramel and a hint of citrus. Smooth, nice finish, mild body and moderate+ carbonation. Nice to get to try this variation and prefer it over the normal offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: Poured a cloudy amber color lager with a small foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of lightly sweet cereal notes with light floral notes. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet cereal notes with some floral hoppy, light grassy notes and a yeasty finish, Body was full with good carbonation. I would definitely make this a regular product if I was the brewer.

Enjoyed at the National Capital Craft Beer Week. Quite nice to sample an unfiltered version of the good Steam Whistle Pilsner brew. Poured a hazy golden colour with the rest being close to the original, with its spicy hops and nice grainy notes. Seem smoother than the original version.
