Quelconque, peu goûteuse, buvable sans grand intérêt. Bouteille bue quelque part à Toronto, Canada, courant mai 2013.

Damn you Bellwoods and indie, and the whole country of Belgium, and Block 3 and well, all of you amazing craft brew places, you’ve ruined me for work Christmas parties. The beers that seemed alright to me just a few years back just, well, suck now. I struggle over the limited selection of Stella, Bud Light, Guinness, Keith’s IPnAy, and Steam Whistle. And those choices seem grim. The Steam Whistle which pours a clear slightly orange gold with a thin white head seems sad. And really it’s not a bad beer. Smells like hay malts and syrup, and defeat. Tastes like sharp hay malty failed-effort. All I think about is Farmageddon, and New Tomorrow. How can I function at places like Kelsey’s? Guess that’s why I’m not the RB Mayor there.

Seems to be the main Toronto alternative to macro lagers. Grainy aroma, biscuit malt, wheat, brioche, touch of honey, fairly clean finish. Not bad, a pretty quaffable pils/helles.

LetsGoState (611) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Appearance is medium white head with clear yellow color. Aroma is sweet. Taste is light and malty. Overall the style doesn’t wow me, but it’s a good example of it.

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Relatively thin head for a pilsner. Aroma is grain, biscuit, buttered popcorn notes. Some malty sweetness.

Gerbeer (1989) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of cereal and flour. Flavors of cereal, honey and toasted malts. A step above industrial.

HippyHop (255) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
This beer is probably a tad better than I rated it. But not much. The aroma is boring: grain. The taste is boring: grain, some sweetness that tastes like (all-natural) corn syrup. A vaguely dry finish. It seems to me that if your slogan is "Do one thing really well" then you should probably, um, do that one thing really well. This is mediocre at best. Also: distinctive hop aroma my ass.

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.

On tap at the brewery. The filtered version is a bit rougher than the unfiltered, it is a clear light gold with a milder aroma and similar light malt/crackery flavor. OK.

On tap at the brewery. Pours clear and glistening yellow. Low aroma, fresh clean taste, with a short finish. Ideal for hot summer days but lacks any real character.
