Golden, nice white head. Aroma of English hops and maltiness. Flavour is not quite to style as it misses the distinctive crisp quality of a pilsner. Hoppy, nice malt background, overall good, though nothing fancy. Draught.

These guys only brew the one product, under the theory that if Creemore can do it, so can they. Difference being that Creemore is a flavourful, quality beer, while Steamwhistle is a cool bottle. Even on re-evaluation, this beer holds little appeal. The odd bit of maltiness, some unhappy English-tasting hops, no body.

LetsGoState (597) - 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.

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Relatively thin head for a pilsner. Aroma is grain, biscuit, buttered popcorn notes. Some malty sweetness.

Gerbeer (1838) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of cereal and flour. Flavors of cereal, honey and toasted malts. A step above industrial.

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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
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 (1529) - 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.

Iphonephan (3354) - McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
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.
