3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Keg at William K. Kurvi, 20150612) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had sweetness, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, something resembling cardboard, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. Resembles too much an old lager but surprisingly not completely bad brew.

-im antrunk eine recht starke hopfennote

Selbst für ein quasi Lager nicht sehr komplex.
Trotzdem meilen besser als die Durchschnittslager

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35,5 cl bottle@home in straight glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours medium amber with off-white head of small bubbles with good retention Malty aroma with caramel and hop notes.Disappointingly light malty taste with note of bread and caramel. Hardly any hop and only a faint lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasantly low carbonation and mouthfeel though rather thin body. I was disappointed by this one as I remembered it more tasteful and as I am a fan of the brewery’s Liberty Ale. Not bad, but not memorable either.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Steam beer is a very good pale ale. It has a good head, but what sets it apart is its excellent malt taste. It is fairly high in hops, and the malt and hops marry very well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Pale amber / copper colour with a towering, dense, creamy head with a buttery tinge. Wonderful head retention and some of the nicest lacing I’ve ever seen. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, woody and sulphur. Medium bitterness and medium roast malt sweetness. Light to medium body, some chewy nuttiness and a lingering, grainy, semi-dry, bitter finish. Some lovely complexity in this one. Very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A true American Classic and one of my all time favorite beers. Clear amber pour with a frothy white head. Left drips of lace. Aroma was bits if caramel and woody, earthy Norther Brewer hops. Flavors were slightly sweet with a nice moderate bitter finish. Nicely balanced. Unique fruitiness in the finish, a product of the fermentation process I’m sure. Always a pleasure.
