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.

A great light lager with fresh corn aroma and enough hops to balance out. Like another reviewer points out itís quite 1 dimensional but itís well balanced and a tasty summer pilsner. If youíre looking for state of the art youíre not going to find it but one of my pet peeves about rate beer and beeradvocate is a snobby attitude around less developed beers. Tastes like a well executed mainstream beer with more hops Sometimes a refreshing summer lager is pretty effing great!

Couleur blonde avec un mince col mousseux. Nez de levure pilsner et de quelques cťrťales. En bouche ce níest pas une biŤre exceptionnel mais une pilser qui se prend bien contrairement a certaine autre biŤre commercial.

My favourite summer beer. 1 dimensional but not offensive if fresh and sharp and clean hops if cold.

I usually donít like beer in a green bottles, but a friend gave me one so I had to try it. Well I always be a green bottle snob but this beer was quite nice. It pours a pale straw colour.It had a fast disappearing head. The taste is malt sweetness with some citrus overtones. Quite enjoyable. Iíd drink it straight out of the bottle.

Pint at the pint house, toronto. It's quite a nice pilsner. Nothing really much else to say. It's refreshing and lagery. It's very OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very underwhelming. Nice clarity with a light white foamy head. Bubbly and well carbonated. Their tag line is do 1 thing well but I feel they donít do that.

clear golden pale, carbinaded. Might of had it once or a few times many many yrs ago and if so didn;t like it then. Some of it was crisp, easy drinking bready biskity the good parts. But a lot more heavy n hopy then I would want in a pilsner and had some syrup sweet malt taste that made it taste a bit like a high % lager and that part I didnít like/

Very light hoppy aroma. Big head with big bubbles. Very clear, darker yellow. Does taste more like a generic pilsner than a generic american standard. Sort of like a hoppier version of your average macro. Pretty uneventful except for the hop bitterness in the finish.

Motobashi (61) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Lightly toasted and fresh aroma. Clear golden without head. Active carbonation. Slightly sweet, with just a hint of bitterness. Could use a touch more hops. Very little aftertaste. Overall enjoyable and refreshing.

Big cans. Looks golden. Aroma of pale malts with some wheat notes, light hops, and some spices/dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.
