2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Volo, Toronto
Deep blond color, with compact head. The aroma is anonymous, a bit papery and yeasty. Dry mouthfeel, with the same profile. The bitterness is stronger than the average

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Stonehammer has suffered a lot lately. At one time a credible German pils, this now has a lighter body, a lot less hop and less malt. All round, it is no longer a pilsner, let alone a good one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very pale colour, on cask at C’est What Fall Fetval. Some cask bubbles. Hits the style, medum mouthfeel, but not too drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2010 2010-09-24. Hazy pastel pale yellow, small frothy white head. 3+ Aroma of floral hops, dry straw. 5+ Flavour is mild, muted pale malts, floral, allusions to corn on the cob (but in a good way), light bitterness, odd finish. Average to light palate. Okay, inoffensive but pretty mildly flavoured. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0 Tap at Cest What as Chachi Pilsener, Toronto

2004-03-XX. Pale crisp yellow body. Grassy grainy aroma creeps forth from a fast disappearing white head. Pleasant bitterness is too young to come out to play. Overall impression of a thin bodied bland lager. At first I thought it was just too cold but letting it warm up a bit didn’t help much. Not unpleasant, but doesn’t make me want to run to the store for another either. 5/3/5/2/10 - 2.5

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Any first impressions?
-A very pale, translucid, metallic yellow sports a thin film of head.
-Honeyed malt sweetness comprises most of the nose at first.
-Sweet grain envelops the palate along with prickly but scant bubbling.
-The silky malt structure produces a comfortable mouthfeel.
What if you dig deeper?
-A pleasant, gentle wooden hop bitterness rises in the back.
-Some sulphur notes build and take too much room in the flavor spectrum.
-Lactic notes accompany the sulphur in the nose as well, disproportionately.
-All in all, a decent pilsner which could sway the macro drinker towards a label change.
Bottle; no date.

Pale golden-straw pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit straw-like. Sort of crackery with a touch of light chewiness. Bready with crackery pils malt. Very clean and fairly tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 [449-20070726] Tap @ Rebel House (Toronto, ON). Medium malty aroma with a hint of fruity apple. Clear, golden orange body with a quick white creamy head. Medium hoppy flavour has toasted malt. Medium body. Nice blend if a little boring. (6/2/7/3/11) 2.9
[620B-20070916] Sample @ Feast of Fields (Hillsburgh, ON). Floral yeast aroma, like sweet mango. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity yeast continues in flavour. Light body. Still quite nice. (6/2/7/3/12) 3.0
[3383B-20100924] Cask. Mild ginger spice aroma has some odd plastic chinese noodles. Slightly hazy, light orange yellow body with a long-lasting bubbly white head. Kind of bland noodles. Medium body. Despite the odd notes, it does have balance and is fairly drinkable. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

can. pours unclear bright gold with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. honeyed pilsner malts, mountain dew*TM, caramel/diacetyl; white grape maltiness, some grassy herbalness, so-so yeast. moderate carbonation - almost spritzy; light body - fairly thin for its abv; balanced herbal-grassy finish. surprisingly, its pale lager (which is quite reductive) little brother, F & M StoneHammer Light, seems to reflect a tiny bit more a cleaner lager as it did not contain as much off-flavours, but close.
