COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Steam Lager.
An unfiltered, unpasteurised lager with a difference. We use San Francisco Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures to release delicate fruity esters, whilst Vienna malt is used to give the beer a hint of sweetness.

Tap at Islington CBC. Malty, earthy, grassy nose. Deep. Very earthy and dry flavor, some caramel and grain. Super dry and hoppy finish with a big hop burn. Dig it.

Nocturne (1203) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2015
Keg at Crown & Kettle, Manchester. Hazy light amber shade. Short white head. Nose is orangey citrus, varnish. Taste has a lot of jammy fruit notes; near a kind of marmalade or strawberry jam flavour. The "steam" aspect is quite clear too. Not bad.

AdiBeer (2165) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Aroma: grain and cereal malts, some acidity. Appearance: hazy gold, massive, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: grainy malts continue, bitters remain and get slightly stronger in the finish, lively carbonation. Overall: OK for a Lager, but nothing more. Bottle from Hop Burns & Black, East Dulwich.

Rune (9403) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Golden coloured body with shade of grey. Hazy, bubbly white head. Aroma of pale malts and lemony hops. Mild taste of mid-sweet citrus and pale malts. Soft carbonated. Smooth on the swallow. Satisfying thirst quencher (Shared on the train to Derby 20.02.2015).
