Borders. We’ve crossed into uncharted territory with our newest release, El Steinber. In our somewhat unusual take on the style, we add Midnight Wheat malt to give this lager its dark brown color and roasted Indio-Hispano blue corn to lighten the body and create a unique, toasty flavor. German pilsner malt and Saaz hops round out this beer producing a crisp, clean finish and smooth drinkability that is perfect for any occasion.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear amber brown with a thin beige head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt that is joined by a little sour apple, moving to the palate without incident, showing mild, clear hops on the swallow. All parts cruise to a medium finish. Definitely unique, but it doesn’t quite work.

Salmoniform (1237) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Poured from tallboy to glass. Dark copper brown hue with thick tan head. Aroma is cereal, malt, slight sulphur, clove. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a nice spicy hop bitterness. Overall this is an enjoyable fall brew.

Very impressive. Good overall aroma and dark brown look. We’ll balanced and smooth throughout. The the taste was strong and was nice with a steak dinner.
