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.

Gachupines (1248) - USA - JAN 10, 2013
Dark, almost black with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly musty with hints of chocolate. Flavor is a slight chocolate, notes of roasted malt while not being big and full. Nice dark lager, kind of like a upscale Negro Modelo, it could be good with spicy food as a counter to heat without being heavy. Not bad, nice little session beer.

LinusStick (3234) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2016
A very tasteless and weak beer. Aroma was next to nothing, even with the nose almost touching the liquid. A little metal with some roasted malt. Pour was a nice enough dark brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was, again, next to nothing. Some roasted malt came put in the finish but upon fist sip it almost tasted like seltzer water. Mild hop bitterness in the finish. Medium carbonation. Almost dumped it

Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
This dark lager poured a very dark Amber colour with a soapy, light tan coloured head. Scents include metal, pee and very light hops? Barley? First swig was quite thin and flavour dept wasn't anything to write home about. Although there was a little, a very little speck of roasty flavour with a small taste of hop and cream. Drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

Barreras (1560) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with a roasted nut aroma. Taste is smooth, with a roasted malt flavor. A light malted foam coats the tongue after the swallow. A dry aftertaste, with a smooth finish.

Aromas of cocoa powder, kind of grapey, some earthy scent, like faint fennel. Clear deep brown, fully lasting beige head. Somewhat sweet initially, malts dominate, some earthy hops. Medium bodied, a little sticky.

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.
