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.

Old rate. 341mL bottle, pours a clear piss yellow with a small white head. Nose and flavour brings out notes of grassy, corn and straw. Much more pleasant to drink that standard macro lagers out there, but still very ordinary and boring. OK.

On tap into pint glass(I guess ?). Toronto. Pale yellow in color. Very little head. Aroma of hay, a touch yeasty. Faint alcohol. Taste is mildly sweet. Fairly clean. Palate is thin no texture. Short finish

500ml can brought back from Toronto from Rob and Karen. Packaged in July, drank in January. Pretty disgusting aroma. Solid appearance, but that is its only good attribute at this point. Drainpour.

Light aroma of cereal. Small, mostly diminishing, off white head. Virtual no lacing. Clear, sparkling, light yellow pour. Slightly sweet, flavour. Light, crisp body. Dry texture and soft carbonation. Cheers!

JStax (3315) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
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.

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.

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.

LetsGoState (624) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2014
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.
