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

Ernest (7251) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, malt syrup, sugar cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with a light note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation. The sugary nose certainly portends the syrupy sweet mouth experience. Mediocre.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.

onceblind (6938) - 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.

joeneugs (5486) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 23, 2014
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 (1551) - 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 Id 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, Id drink again maybe colder and if it were about 50 cents less (paid $2.75).
