Dorée franche, effervescence moyenne, petit col de mousse, elle semble mince. Au nez, maïs, sucre et houblons. Plutôt sucrée, elle ne présente aucune amertume, est plutôt ronde et désaltérante. Peu de qualités, mais elle demeure meilleure que la majorité des pilsners du genre.

Can. Clear gold pour, small white head. Pretty standard pilsner aroma, malty, a little bit of fruit that’s not citrus... Flavour is much the same. Very refreshing, and a respectable and well-balanced pilsner, especially for the price and availability in Canada. But nothing special or unique.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Been drinking Steam Whistle, off and on, for several years now. Decent beer with nice flavour, especially if it’s fresh.
It’s a perfect beer for a craft beer drinker who has friends with less discerning taste to keep on hand. It’s unoffensive and easy to drink for virtually anyone.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 The beer being a Pilsner is not going to win many craft fans approval. It is decent for what it is. For sure better then a mass produced beer like Molson Canadian or Labatt Blue. Nice little brewery and offers a enjoyable tour of the brewery with nice staff. Located right by the core of downtown and in a great tourist area. I just wish this brewery made more then 1 beer, would love to go and enjoy and taste other styles of beer, but with only 1 beer the brewery is a bit boring.

On tap at the brewery, prior to a Jays game. I caught a Bautista bomb that day too, killer day. Clear golden pour with a weak white foam, little retention, spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and grains. Taste is quite good, mild sweetness and a smooth finish. Probably the best Canadian pilsner I’ve sampled.

bottle. I like the freshness if this pilsner. Steam whistle produces only this type of beer for years and I respect this. Light golden colour, clear beer. White rich head that does not last long. Aroma of bread dough and wet grain. Taste is somehow sweet and bitter at the end. Hops are herbal and mild. It could have more bitterness. A refreshing pilsner,

I have tried this beer in bottle, can and on tap. On tap tastes much better. This is an unpasteurized and only filtered beer. Pours a nice clear light golden colour, right carbonation with white head that does not last long and some lacing. Aroma is very grainy in fact that of wet grains, and soft bread dough. Taste is grain malts, with some sweetness. Hops are herbal and for my taste it needed more. Body is light. This is a very refreshing pilsner, Well crafted in a beautiful brewery environment. If you visit Toronto it is worth visiting this brewery in a historic building. Quite brave for producing only one type of beer in a market which is not so pre-pilsener one!!

Golden in colour. Thin head. Watery taste. Not a bad brew on a hot day if there isn’t anything else available. Cheers!

This is a pilsener, and I feel it’s getting a bad rap because pilseners aren’t typically very interesting or flavourful beers.
There is little to no aroma to be found, slight hints of hay.
The colour is a beautiful bright wheat yellow.
The taste (for the style of beer it is) is crisp, clean, notes of hay, sweet corn? highly sessionable, and incredibly refreshing.
Not something I would drink regularly as I usually drink Ipa’s but steam whistle is perfect for the first beer after a long hard day at work or for a refreshing beer on the patio.

Great! Did not expect to find such great pilsner taste in Canada. Of course best ratings in all categories and highly recommend to make the tour in the roundhouse!
