COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pale Two-Row, German Pilsner, Midnight Wheat, Roasted Blue Corn, Saaz Hops

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a dark brown color with a small white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild roasted grains and light caramel. Taste is light roasted grain bitterness with a mild caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A little bit lighter in body than I like, but otherwise a pretty solid dunkel.
