This IS steam beer. If youíre a fan of the style, this is it. Besides that, itís very tasty. Medium bodied, sharp, and clean. Iím not familiar with the intricacies of brewing, but thereís a distinct difference between regular lagers and steam beer. Steam beer tastes more robust and "wetter". One of my summertime through autumn favorites.

Has a darker amber color and a strong taste with a light fruity taste. Finishes with a bit of bitterness and fruitiness. Overall not bad.

A decent beer. Not too hard to drink, maybe a bit strong on the first sip. Quite full-flavored.

This is a good kind of everyday beer, which is a good thing! It is easy to drink. Has a nice full flavor, that is mildly hoppy. Very crisp. The mouthfeel is sort of medium, not really watery, but not thick either. Very good poured from a bottle or from draught.

Light brown color, medium head. A medium bodied beer. Mild malts and hops. Nice malt sweetness, balanced by a nice hop spiciness. Mild taste. Good flavor. Mouthfeel is very full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. A simple well made beer. Classic style.

Excellent beer with a good flavor. Smooth and well balanced. Not as good as the Liberty Ale or Anchor porter though.

Light amber color, minimal head that doesnít stick around long. Hoppy. Hints of coffee, especially in immediate aftertaste. Very good beer.

Orange color, slight malt smell, with a nice blending of both malt and hops in the taste. An interesting beer that Iíd like to try again sometime.
