When it comes to beer, I know pretty much nothing. I only know that much like wine and coffee, beer comes in many types, some with lighter bodies, some heavier, some taste bolder, while others are very mild. So I had to do some research to find out more about beer, Steam Whistle in particular.

Turns out Pilsner is a style of lager that was created in the Czech Republic, back in the 1800’s when the majority of beers were darker in color because they were top fermented, and therefore cloudy. In Pilsen, they decided to open a city owned brewery, and utilized bottom fermenting yeast which made the beer more clear. So modern Pilsners tend to look clear, are yellow in color, and taste and smell of hops.

It’s a good introductory beer for those who don’t like big, bold, overly bitter tasting beers, or are just starting to delve into the world of beer. Overall, I’d recommend Steam Whistle for those that aren’t big beer drinkers, as it’s a very easy beer to drink. If you’re looking for Steam Whistle, from what I’ve seen it’s fairly commonly sold in liquor stores and restaurants around Edmonton.
