COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique twist on the California common beers, or steam beer. Brewed with lager yeast at ale temperatures and then cold conditioned, to accentuate the ingredients. Subtley sweet maltiness with a hint of caramel, combined with a lingering hop aroma make this session beer anything but ordinary! Season: all Color: deep gold/light copper

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber, quite appealing. Aroma is not strong, but malty and a little yeasty, inviting. Crisp flavor is malty and a little sweet, with a bitter hoppy underpinning and a hint of yeast. Smooth finish helps it go down the pipes nicely, leaving a somewhat hoppy finish.

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pale malt aroma with mild fruitiness. Looks like an average lager. Has the processed sweetness of say, gummy worm candy and a hint of hops. Easiest drinker of the night.

brokensail (10921) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 4, 2011
A: This one pours amber in color with a smallish off-white head. S: Sweet malt in the form of toffee and bread to begin with. There’s a bit of yeast and very faint hops. A few mild fruit esters and some straw and grass notes. T: Bready malt along with some toast and toffee. Like the aroma, the hops are fairly mild, though there is a bit of grass and straw, maybe a few floral notes. Just a light bitterness to it. M: Medium in both body and carbonation. O: The more steam beers I try, the less I like them.

nickd717 (3483) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2010 On tap at Beer Works Airport. Clear deep golden color with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is decent - grainy and malty with a hint of hops. Pilsner malt, grain, and some mild hop bitterness on the flavor. Clean, crisp, and light-bodied. Like a California Common and golden ale hybrid in a way. Drinkable.
