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

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 (1381) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2013
16oz can pours with a clear deep amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet fruity ester notes like red apples mixing with a mild malt roastiness, faint caramel malts and then pears at the end of the draw. The taste has a moderate degree of roasted malts and some biscuit malts to go along with sweet lager yeast esteriness that’s a little apple and nectarine like. This is pretty nice except I wasn’t expecting any biscuit malts or roastiness and as such it seems out of place.

16oz can. Rating #47. Decent lager, amber in color and pretty toasty, not what I was expecting at all. (2794)

EdInSaltLake (672) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Toast/bread crust, caramel/sweet aroma and flavor. Subtle cherry-ish fruit. A tiny dirt/dust sort of flavor. Somewhat "creamy" mouthfeel.

From the can, copper pour with an off white head. Malty flavor and earthy hops. Tasty goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This poured a dark amber with a large beige head and lots of lacing. Nose of roasted mats and some floral hops. Medium in body and very smooth of mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with some fruit. Light bitter finish.

Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2013
16 ounce can from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This poured almost clear brown. Kind of tea colored. A three finger beige head. An aroma of rich malts and those dominated the flavor. Some lager yeast, also. Just a hint of hops are floral and perhaps a bit of citrus. I loved the low ABV. Enjoyable despite not being complex.

500ml can from Douglass88. Nice copper hue with a generous white head. Malty with a bit of caramel, gentle hops; mild bitterness and body, moderate carbonation, fresh and decent.
