On tap at the Brewery in Toronto. The best deScription I can give is that is like a slightly more hoppy Rolling rock. Not bad at all, miles better than Budweiser, Miller or Coors. Better than Labatt Blue. Overly expensive though.

341ml bottle. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of sweet malt, light straw, a very faint aroma of banana and apple juice, and bready yeast. Smells like a good Austrian lager. The taste is as expected, sweet malt, mineral water, and light fruit notes up front that leads into a maltier profile with a light floral note, and a more mineral notes in the finish. I like Steam Whistle pilsener, however...1) I can always buy a similar 500ml Euro-pilsener at a cheaper price 2) I have had some seriously bad luck with Steam Whistle bottles in the past in regards to skunked beer. It’s good, but I usually toss my money elsewhere.

Sample from my dad’s glass. Aroma: lots of caramel and honey. App: clear yellow, minimal white head, no retention. Taste and palate: light body, light to medium sweetness, dry finish. Not much more. Overall: meh, as bad as I expected it to be.

3FG - 3 fired guys - a nice marketing stunt! Unfortunately the beer is rather average, just a lager, nothing to get excited about.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of dough and yeast. Pours a clear pale with white head. Taste is light bitter. Light body and thin texture. Not much to it, refreshing, but kind of boring.

Fat @ Brewpub, Toronto. Klar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter av gräs, örter och malt. Smaken är oerhört ren och frisk, inte så konstigt med tanke på att ölen kommer direkt från tillverkningen så att säga. Malt, frukt, gräs och örter hittas.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at Tartu College cafeteria in Toronto. Bottled Aug 31 2015. Pours clear golden with loads of bubbles, and a white, fluffy head. The nose is, well, papery with some malt sweetness. Flavour’s similar, but less as papery, and some "not unpleasant" bitterness. Crisp but not overcarbonated. Okay for a macro pils.

It is a pilsner. Tastes like a pilsner, smells like a pilsner, looks like a pilsner, and is cold.

Draft - Light grainy notes and sweetness. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light biscuit and a touch of bitterness.

Draft, at the Boreal Collective opening in Toronto. Solid lager, tasty and crisp. Hoppier, stronger lager. Nice

KoNrRiI (956) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2015
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, instantly-vanishing head. Aroma of DMS, metal, and delicate pale malts. Taste is sweet, delicately malty, DMS-y. Light body, thin texture, and average carbonation. Finish is buttery in flavor and quite long - the only good part of the beer. Overall a pale lager like many others, hard to call it a pilsner which it purports to be.
