3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on draught in St. Charles, Illinois. Overrated, but excellent. I actually didn't know what to expect. Appearance of a pale ale with the malty fresh taste of a red. Crystal clear, little head.

The last of a dying breed, California Steam beer. What a concept. Brewing ale with lager yeast. Pours out a deep copper
color. Nice head, malty aromas. Pretty fair beer in all.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bit of a disappointment. It's not that good. A special malty aroma, fine light amber color. High level of bitterness in the finish. But my first impression was that something was wrong.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. I never did pour my recent six pack into a glass so I am judging appearance and aroma on memory. Of the macros' this is one I can drink over and over and over.

Malty and fruity nose. a little bit cloudy, amber coloured beer. Head doesn't remain. Taste is malty, fruits and a hopbitter/malty finish. Okay brew, not impressive.

Pleasant, well-made little beer. Hops and malt actually competing in my mouth. Lovely burnt orange color, right amount of carbonation. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Full bodied and malty, mild banana notes. The most notable thing about it is the full creamy body, such a satisfying mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has a surprisingly good aroma. It pours with a thick head that dies down quickly and leaves a nice lace on the glass. The taste is slightly hoppy and enjoyable. I would recommend trying this beer.
