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.

bhensonb (12768) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear dark brown with a large creamy beige head. Aroma hints of cola. Med body. Flavor is hinting at nutty brown, but I think dark caramel cola is a better deScription. Finishes with a light suggestion of chocolate. Tasty.

Interesting lager. I found it to be a very decent example of a vienna-ish lager.

DrSilverworm (8876) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2012
On tap, labeled "El Steinber", but the deScription was "Mexican Dark Lager". Maybe "El Steinber" should be added to this beer’s name so other raters can find it? Dark ruby red color, good off-white lightly greyish head leaving plenty lace. Good smooth lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Interesting toasty malt aroma, some spice, but nothing that impedes on the light body and hinders drinkability. Light herbal hops. Light bitterness, little salt. Pretty tasty. I like this. Good, creative interesting brew.
