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 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.

Can. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head. Light caramel aroma. Malt and spice flavor with light mineral notes. Medium bodied. Mineral and malt lingers with light spice.

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.

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.

Bountiful amber with a great head. Vague hoppy aroma. Stout malt lager beer, I think their best yet!? Only flaw: it's a bit thin on the tongue.

NABA ’04: Dark mahogany with nice sized head & lacing. The aroma is nicely malty with hops, mild balanced. Finishes malty, sweet.

On tap @ O’Shucks Park City, Utah. Light German pilsner style beer, light malts. Great skiing in Park City but beer pretty much sucks
