This really hit the spot while we were setting up camp in Zion. A nice hop flavor surprisingly and very smooth and easy to drink. The best Moab beer buy far I’ve had.

Can from a very generous trader. Douglas? I can’t remember. It’s been awhile. I didn’t realize this was a California Common until now. Thanks! Pours amber with white head. Nose/taste of toffee malt, toasted biscuit, bready malt and light spicy hops. Dry crisp finish. Medium body.

16 ounce can
Thanks to Santa for the summer lawnmower beer. This cooled me down after a couple of hours in the July heat. While it isn’t overly complex it does not need to be. This is a campfire beer to share with friends.
Aroma / Appearance - The deep brown base was the color of thick honey. An ivory wisp of thin head barely held on. Almonds, malty iced tea, and the smell of a recently polished oak table filled the air with a soft feel.
Flavor / Palate - The blend of malts and noble hops ease into a refreshing, gentle finish. The bitterness takes a few sips to catch on before growing to full strength. I hope Moab’s other beers are this good.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber color with a thick, foamy lt tan head. Aroma is malty with earth, dry leaf notes, a touch of maple...verh faint spicy hops. Flavor has a touch of crisp spicy bitterness over dry leaves, a bit of toffee, and some nuttiness...biscuity. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is nutty/biscuity, bitter and dry. Tasty.
