This is where it all began. A homebrewer, a backyard recipe, and a vision to become a landmark brewery for the South. Fullsteam is a true-to-style American Common Lager, a hoppy and malty amber beer inspired by our dream to make a positive impact on a local community and build a Southern beer economy. Fullsteam is the first beer we ever brewed and our namesake for the adventure it launched.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of mild caramel oak and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Growler shared by drabmuh at a recent tasting. Pours a medium copper color with a nice off white head and a good deal of lacing down the side of my tulip. Nose is pretty faint, but brings forward some caramel malt as well as some slight herbal and floral hops. The taste takes it up a bit. The malt is the center of the show, but there are some faint hops making there way through, although not adding too much bitterness. Not particularly sweet. Moderate body with good carbonation. Drinkability was really nice, and I enjoyed the crispness of this one to start the tasting off. Also of note was the growler glass itself, which was quite cool.

Rated on 02-27-2013 at Fullsteam Brewery. This draft beer has a small beige head with a short retention, transparent amber body, very little carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is lightly grainy, herbal, earthy hops, caramel, and bready. The flavor is light hop bitterness, light earthy hops, caramel, and bready. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very quaffable beer that is not overly hoppy tasting and is worth trying.

This one I’ve had a few times. Clean coppery pour with one finger of sandstone head. Nose is slightly grainy with bready notes and a light sweetness balanced by an herbal hop character. Slightly vegetal. Bready flavor with an upfront herbal hop character with notes of hay and sweet toasted grain.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. I get almost no nose on this. Despite that, it was surprisingly flavorful, with a kick of some spice in there that I can’t quite place. I liked it more than I thought I would.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2010 Growler from Weaver Street Market, Carrboro. Cap was really difficult to get off, I almost called the owner to ask if their was a special trick. Luckily, Ethan was around and could get it. Pours a relatively translucent golden amber with little a foamy white head that fades leaving a solid white lace around my fullsteam jar with a handle. Carbonation seemed low on my first pour, but I got much more of a head (to begin with) and it feels more carbonated overall now. Aroma of caramel malts, banana bread, light menthol, light hops. Slightly sweet, mostly bitter finish.

On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. A dark than expected pour, with an abundant carbonation and a thick looking body. Nose was fairly hoppy and aromatic, and overall I found it a very nice rendition of the style, more assertive and with more character than anticipated.

On tap at Tyler’s in Durham, listed as "Carolina Common." Pours clear golden-copper in color with a small whitish head and some lacing. The aroma is decent, with biscuit malt evident, caramel, and herbal hop notes. The flavor is more or less standard California Common, with caramel, biscuit, and earthy hops that lend some bitterness. A bit sweet if anything. Medium-bodied with average carbonation, the expected mouthfeel pretty much. A good beer; certainly better than average for the style.

Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is toast and grassy hops. Flavor is much of the same. Finish is like a "clean hippy"
