3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle BBE: 1/2016. Lightly chilled. Crystal clear amber body with full, thick, tight off-white head. High carbonation evident. Biscuity aromas with honey and vanilla sweetness, gentle floral notes and a slight barnyard essence. Medium sweetness followed by a crisp bitterness, a well-balanced if simple taste. Fairly high carbonation, but not overly fizzy. Light body concealed well by a foamy texture. Short to medium finish. A classic, highly-drinkable beer that doesn’t offend.

Helder amberkleurig bier. Aroma is bloemig, vanille en citrus. Smak begint zoet en bitter in de afdronk. Licht trekkend.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild tasting, with a moderate hop presence. It really does, in some ways, have char’s of both a lager and ale. Thanks to the new hop guide, I can say that I don’t like Northern Brewer hops as a finish/aromatic hop. The hop aromatics and flavors in this beer present as a slightly woody and earthy/musty note that I don’t find particularly agreeable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 345 ml bottle. Clear honey-Amber in the glass with a creamy lasting white head. Aromas of cut grass, raisins, honey and light citrus. Starts out with a sweet malty note that’s quickly overtaken by firmer grass and grapefruit hop flavours. Finishes quite cleanly with a gently fruity aftertaste. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a 980 yen tasting set at Liquor Mountain with a free glass! Steam Beer - the classic that introduced an indigenous California beer & helped kicked off the craft beer movement. A deep copper color pour with a solid beige head with nice lacing and staying power. A big malty caramel nose with enticing fruit overtones. Medium to light bodied with a somewhat abrasive carbonation but it does give a very dry finish. The taste is malty caramel, some fruits and more bitter than I expected but it has a crisp flavor and each sip makes me want to go back for more. Better than expected.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 Oz bottle. Pours clear amber with a frothy white head. Aromas are fairly subtle, cereal grain and minerals, some apricot. Flavor is mild sweet, worth cereal grain and some cherry at first. Quickly transitions to an herby hop bitterness that lingers throughout, with some nutty notes at the end. Medium-low body with a slick mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Overall, just ok. Not very complex, and while tasty enough, nothing noteworthy on any of the fronts.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Aroma maltado-amadeirado. Amargor suave. É a cerveja mediana, sem nenhum grande diferencial, exceto o aroma.
