3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
pours a crystal clear straw colour, with a creamy head and some lacing. The aroma is of corn, wet hay, sweet malts. The tasting notes include crackers, corn, light caramels, water, slight carbonation and a dry finish. I am not a huge fan of the style, this beer is no different. Very very light, and boring. I think I would prefer a glass of water to this beer!

Bottle in Waterloo, Ontario, 1st May 2013, best beer of a bad bunch on a poor evening selection. It has some flavour, a step up from the mass produced stuff, not my style

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
canned. a gift from Canada among other beers. this wannabe pilsner is overall not that bad. an industrial beer that has one purpose only: kill the thirst. and I think it does that well. a beer-like aroma is almost not present. however it has a nice shiny golden color! no head. the taste is a bit hops, malt, low bodied, low bitter finish.
however, it tastes very refreshing. definitely a brew ideal after work-out instead of some yucky sugared soda or pure water. with each sip this "beer" becomes quite enjoyable. in its category of industrial beers this brew is not bad at all.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Of the less than average pilsners in Toronto, this is probably in the top fifth or so. Light, pretty refreshing and sessionable. A little musty in the aroma with a bit of a floral aroma.

Pours clear golden, with a moderate head. Crisp hoppy taste, with a similar aroma. Very drinkable pilsner.
