3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can courtesy of gription. Pours a clear amber with a 2 finger head that faded to a ring within a minute. Aroma of biscuits, malt, bread and some hop bitterness. First sip: hops hit you first on the front of the tounge and the bitterness lasts for a while. After a few seconds, the strong malt backbone becomes apparent and coats your mouth with sticky caramel bread. This is a great steam style beer. Recommended.

16 oz can, courtesy of Douglas88. Pours deep amber with a one finger creamy off white head. Little bit of lace. Malty, bready aroma with minor hop notes. Flavor follows suit with a thin palate & low carbonation. Super easy drinking. Nice for a summer day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Traded can. I am admittedly no expert on steam beers but I thought this had a more hops forward approach compared to others. Not bad at all, just something different. Good.

Aroma: Toasted malts, yeasty, nutty and grassy
Taste: Toasted malts, yeasty, caramel, nutty with a bitter grassy finish. Leaves a mild sweetness in my mouth
Not bad. If it wasn’t for some mild sweetness, this would be a great summer beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a semi cloudy dark yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grassy, grainy malts and not much else. Flavor was a little metallic, light grassy and dusty hops and sweeter pale malt. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a point sized can. This beer has a nice malty character, the sulfury yeast I don’t really care for. Easy to drink, I could consume several of these on a hot summer day. Overall this is a decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 16 ounce can. A sweet fruity hop nose, some leaves. A rich sweet smooth even slightly bitter hop flavor, some dustiness, very smooth and tasty. Certainly some sweet fruity malts. Very refreshing, a good beer. On tap at the Brewpub. Pours a copper color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet caramel, earthy, some butterscotch (not diacetal). The flavor is an interesting dusty and dry caramel and light fruity hop mix. Very drinkable and tasty. Light but nice.

Darker amber coloured beer with a very small off-white head and some medium carbonation. Sweet fruity and malty hinted aroma. Medium to full body. Finish is bitter malty hinted with a longer dry bitter hoppy hint. Not bad.
