COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our steamer beer is a unique 100% style lager. Brewed with a special strain of lager yeast that works better at warmer temperatures. This method dates back to the late 1800s, when refrigeration was a greater luxury. Amber in color, medium bodied with a malty character. Mildly fruity with an assertive hop bitterness and a crisp clean finish

Soupy-goopy American amber malt dullness (amaretto / marzipan, caramel chew, toffee) with apple / pear esters as seen in so many Oktoberfest "lagers" which never see a day below 60 F. Nutty, woody, peppery and pithy hop bitterness with mothball and ethanol off-notes. Moderately carbonic / acidic and slightly lactic / yogurt-like starchy and bitter finish. Basic Amber ale disguised as a lager.

Can. The look is clear, off white head, and orange copper in color. The smell is weak, grain, malt, bread, and light. The taste is grainy, floral, malt, and ok.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Clear copper with a lasting foamy white head. The nose is a bit biscuity with some honey and toast and grassy hop notes. Mild fruity tones right at the front with a touch of pear and yellow apple mix with yeasty toast and bread dough, with a finish of earthy sweet toffee. Pretty neat and surpasses expectation.

16 oz. can from Beer Revolution. It pours a rather dark amber color with an off white head. The aroma has strong notes of toasted bread, light pine and fruit. The flavor is rich with toasted bread, dark berries and a light fruity sulfer note. Perfect body and carbonation. Rich caramel balanced with some earthy bitterness in the finish. Wow, this was really well done. A darker, richer version of the style. I recommend this brew.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Canned: unk Its an amber beer with a solid sheet of toasted foam. Smells woody, creamy and like it has a slight hop kick, and almost herbal hop character. Flavor is much, much more robust than I’d anticipated with plenty of roasted malt character, bits of caramel, some more wood, tea, a little cream as well. Full bodied with velvety carbonation and a decently wet finish. A farily decent beer, I’d drink again maybe colder and if it were about 50 cents less (paid $2.75).

DiarmaidBHK (3408) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Can from Sun Devil Liquors.Pours light brown with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Not much on the nose. Definitley getting some malt action on the tongue. Finish has some fruity elements to it. Pretty good if you ask me.

16 oz tallboy can. Aroma is perfumy, chalky, caramelly, toasty. Pours slightly hazy copper with a one finger collapsing off-white head. Taste is roasty sweet, a little tart. Faint off-note of metal. Medium body, highly carbonated. Pretty tasty.

Fatehunter (1220) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Poured from a tall can into a glass. One finger of head on an amber colored body. The aroma is a fragrant wet grain smell. The taste is nice with light grain, mild bitter and a little spice. Fairly rich taste for a lager. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. A lager with some heft.
