This beer was an odd quest for me to acquire - I got a Steam Whistle churchkey as a bonus in a trade about 4 years ago, and it sits on my keyring to this day. Never had the beer, and people would ask me about it - I found it kinda embarrassing. Tried to trade for it a few times, but somehow the trades never worked out. Finally got a Canadian buddy to send me a sixer of 12 oz cans, so, here we go! Crystal clear golden pour with a decent, tight, white head. Nose is sweet and grainy, some honeylike scents. grainy flavors, a good herbaish hoppy bite on the back end. Mouthfeel is light without seeming thin. Lingering bitter finish, a tad drier than expected. Not exactly a stunner, but I rather enjoyed it. A good lawnmower beer.

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.

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.

RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
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.

From a 16 oz can. Pours a pale gold with an off white head. Smooth and quaffable. A very nice pilsner.

Unfortunately the eye-catching green bottle is the best thing about this beer. Lightly sweet, lightly grainy, lightly boring.

Pours a light golden colour with a foamy white head. Fresh malty aroma. Tastes slightly sweet, lack of hop flavour in my opinion. Little bit of a bitter after taste but definitely nothing overpowering.

MarkoNm (508) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with nice ftothy white head. There’s a mild malty aroma and some grains present. A little biscuity aroma. There’s not much to the taste - sweet and malty, no real bitterness in teh finish. Nothing special, but not bad at all. Very decent.

Redcup-style aroma, though mild--along with all the other elements; primary features are water, chalkiness, and a slightly hoppy, very grassy finish. Forgettable

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small, short lived white head. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Flavour is bland with notes of malt and a mildly dry, bitter finish. Light body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Nothing special.
