12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a clear, deeper amber colored body with a red-orange tint. Finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is malty sweet with a good amount of grains and nuts. A bit bready and doughy, a touch of fruit, and a very light earthy hop. Flavor is sweetly malted, grainy, bready, and a tad bit toasty up front with a more distinct, nice level of earthy hopping throughout. Nutty with some caramel coming out at the end along with a faint fruitiness. Finishes clean, smooth, somewhat dry, and lightly bitter with the earthiness growing slightly in the aftertaste. Very soft, medium body and carbonation. Overall, a really nice Common. Smooth, soft, and well balanced with a pleasant earthiness to balance the sweet, grainy malts. Well done.

12 oz. bottle brought down from Madison by my aunt-in-law. Pours a clear, deep amber with a finger-thick off-white head. Aroma of nuts, a variety of malts- sweet, grainy, and toasty- with some faint earthy hops and dough. Flavor is also nutty and malty, with the malts sweeter (caramel and chocolate) than in the nose. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Seems to really hit the style right on the nose. I prefer this to a lot of other steam ales/commons.

Bottle - The first new beer from Lake Louie in forever--yay! Pours clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, slightly sour malt. Yum. Real bready and yeasty, with herbal hopping and a touch of caramel. Taste is nutty malt, light grassy hops, dark chocolate, a hint of dark coffee beans, and just a touch of alcohol. Smooth, well-carbonated, and very well-balanced. I’m not a fan of all of Lake Louie’s stuff, but I like this one.
