Draft pour at the source. Pours a clear gold with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has grassy, herbal, and breach notes. Some cracker notes as well. The taste is a touch bitter and grassy. Light body, crisp finish, medium carbonation.

At a pub on college street on New year’s eve from 2014 to 2015.
Less Hoppy. Smooth. Citrus. No body. Tasteineral. The taste lingers a little bit, and good. Sweet.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
