Dampf Loc is an all-barley warm fermented ale inspired by “Dampfbier” originally crafted by medieval peasant inhabitants of the Bavarian Forest. A modern interpretation of its Teutonic predecessor, this “Hefe Gerste” is true to its roots; unmistakable in character and accessible to beer drinkers of all palates.

Dampf Loc has a mild hop profile, medium body and a clear, rich, orange hue.

PorterPounder (7335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Savannah, Ga - Whole Foods - 500 ml bottle. Cloudy medium brown/dark orange pour with a bubbly off white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some wort-like accents, some dates and raisins. Very earthy flavor, some yeasty accents, dates, raisins, some back end molasses. Thick enough mouthfeel.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2015
bottle - Copper pour with big chunks of suspended yeast flakes. It smells yeasty and malty. The flavor is of sweet, bready malt with yeast and caramel. Medium bodied. Decent.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Rated on 6-26-2015 (Bottle) This bottled pours a large foamy off-white head with a long retention, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grassy, yeast and malt. The flavor is malt and grassy. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This is a session beer that does not have much character and is a bland tasting beer.

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2015
500 ml bottle poured into lager glass. No bottle dating found. Some sediment remained stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Pours lightly hazy, copper-orange in color. There is a lot of visible carbonation that rises to a moderate size, off-white head with good retention. Some streaks and spots of sticky lacing cling to the glass. Aroma: Earthy and herbal hops with grains in about equal measure but with the hops a little more prominent than the malty aspects. Hints of yeast, honey and mild spices. Taste: More malty/bready than the aroma indicates. Hints of honey and apple juice. Mild bitterness even on the finish Feel: Medium carbonation and body, with both leaning towards a higher level. Smooth and soft. Overall: a good beer for sure, but not as distinctive as the description (e.g., "unmistakable in character") suggests.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated semi-hazy light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was yeasty. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bubbly malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of yeast hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

onceblind (7325) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Brilliant clear copper pour with a thin Rocky off white head. Lovely pale malt and slightly German biscuity ale nose, with something just a touch floral and perhaps a whisper of honey. Crisp and mellow flavor that drinks nearly like an ESB, but with a nutty little American pale malt sweetness. Full and hearty, but a bit one-noted on the palate. It’s basically a slightly more exciting English bitter.

Alengrin (4536) - BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
My first Dampfbier, a historical beer style I hadn’t even heard of till very recently; basically an all-barley ale fermented with Weizen yeast, going extinct a century ago but revived around 1990. This American interpretation of this all but lost style has a thin, finely structured, light beige, lightly lacing head dissolving after a relatively short while, and a cloudy brownish-orangey amber colour with vivid sparkling, totally murky with deposit. Aroma is very estery as well as a bit oxidized - I apparently got an older bottle. Impressions of peach, cloves, cashew nuts, honey, banana, biscuit, orange peel, floral hops, baker’s yeast, hint of refreshing lemony acidity, caramel, bitter herbs. Fruity, crisp onset, dried apricot, dried orange peel and redcurrant, sourish touch probably from the yeast, medium carbo, light and rounded, smooth mouthfeel, pleasant soft bready malt sweetness, caramel, toasted accent bittering a bit, with more bitterness in the end hauling from earthy, ’deep’, leafy hops, leaving a delicate bitterness on the root of the tongue but otherwise allowing the malt sweetness to persist; a powdery yeast feeling also persists, quite strongly even - it is clear that fermentation has not been a great success here (which was already apparent upon opening the bottle, in the form of light gushing). Malty, straightforward beer but too yeasty, quenching though, and interesting to taste for its style alone.

jhamp9 (1672) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Aroma is toffee, honey, and bready malt. Taste follows with some additional herbal earthy character. Sweet dry finish.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 13, 2015
Slightly hazed orange with a small barely off-white head. Aroma is sort of German-beery but with a little teeny bit of funk sneaking in. Flavor is a bit more interesting with plenty of yeasty fruits and honey-sweetness. Smooth and subdued mouthfeel. Good, but next time might as well just buy Anchor Steam.

badhack (519) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Light malt, medium malt, dry, medium mouthfeel, mint, moderately bitter, orange peel. Honey colored and no head.
