Grovlam (4244) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Can. Head was spare to small with a white slightly frothy sparkle. Spare lacing. Clear slightly sparkling body. Color was pale yellow. Aroma was light hay, straw, grass and cardboard. Light bodied with a thin texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with light notes of bitterness. Short finish.

goozen (4056) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2007
Typical Dutch lager with some sweetness and golden look and nice firmy head.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Pours a pale golden color w/ a shallow spritzy froth that reduces to a thin lace. Aromas of malt and grain w/ a defined skunkiness. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers creates a cotton texture. Flavors are basic malts and grains but it does have the tell tale bitter finish of a Pils. However, not a recommendable specimen.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle: Clear gold with a white head. Aroma, it has that distinct imported green glass smell to it. I won’t elaborate, we’ve all been there. Flavor, tastes like nothing but that skunk in the room. So glad I picked this up.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2007
Gold pour, lightly hopped, Malty, on the sweetish side, but very drinkable, average brew.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2007
I expected this green-bottled beer to be skunky (it wasn’t). Still, it seemed a bit thick for the style, and as far as "green bottle Euro lagers" go, I really prefer Pilsner Urquell. It poured a handsome golden color with decent head formation, which left no lacing. It smelled good; not in a "big beer" sense, but it was light and refreshing. Taste and mouthfeel were not all that great though. It was thicker than I felt it should be, and not really refreshing at all. Taste was not off-putting, but seemed syrupy almost, which was not was I expecting (a light and refreshing lager).

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2007
Golden yellow coloured, with an average white head, and some carbonation. Hoppy grassy and malty aroma; medium body. Finish is little bitter hoppy. Medium premium Lager.

hagisu (42) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2006
Not much aroma or distinctive flavour. Almost neutral, very minimal hops. A weak pilsner as far as flavour and aroma are concerned.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Pint can at Albertson’s. <P> Aroma is kind of a celophane-like plastic, but other than that nada. Hardly smeels like anything made of a beer ingredient. <P> The body is a bright gold, clear and supports a fairly lasting white head that is frothy, but mostly composed of varying sizes of bubbles. <P> Watery fore is mostly flavorless before it finishes with a lightly sweet malt note. Not worth your time or money. It does have a somewhat decent mouthfeel for the style, but since it tastes of so little what is the point?

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 500 mL can: This just tastes like dozens of other lages on the LCBO shelves. Nothing remarkable here: think Stella, Heinken, Faxe, etc.. After Ekstra & Headstrong, this just tastes way too thin. YEARS LATER ON TAP: i run my own experiment - a pint that tastes like corn, and other harsh chemical ingredients, awful aftertaste, very pale, this is bad .. . . THEN A FRESH PINT OF STEAMWHISTLE - flavour, quality ingredients, it actually looks darker and tastes far superior . . . a pint of Bavaria as a chaser might make you appreciate STEAMWHISTLE more! life is too short, drink a STEAMWHISTLE
