3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from The Beer Mongers. Pours copper with a yellowish white head. Aroma is somewhat fruity, and there seems to be a tobacco note. Med body. Flavor is rather sharp - really suggests tobacco. fruits seem present. Quite an unusual beer to me. Clearly California Common, but strong unfamiliar flavor set.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver
Copper color with small head. It has some aroma of caramel and bread crust. The mouthfeel is very dry, with dry caramel flavor and a cereal accent, and light bread; the bitterness is high, quite disturbing in the end; dryness and bitterness combine in a metallic final.
Not very interesting.

Solid lager all the way around . . . not sure about why the lack of love on this one. For the style, itís very very good. Getting toasted malts, and rich flavor. Very, very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a slightly hazy orangish copper body with a minimal fizzy off-white head. The nose is dry toasty malt with a light citrusy hop note. The flavor is more sweet than I expected with some toasty malt and husky graininess. Finishes with some citrusy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a bit of a clingy malt body and fizzy carbonation. Not sure what to think about this one, much sweeter than most Steam beers, but maybe that was what they were shooting for.
