The Steam Ale is a crisp, certified organic ale. We incorporate a slap of wheat malt in the grist make-up and ferment it cool. We use Cascade and Citra hops to give it a fresh, zippy finish. Great as the weather warms up.

Average white frothy head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing. Dark yellow clear thin body. Aroma: fruity (pineapple), moderate hops (high quality). Initial flavor: moderate sweet (honeyish and fruity). Final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter; long duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Tasty sweetness, although it was a little cloying. Lacks balance. USD 6.5 50s

Light and thin body carries subtle citrus and spice and, because of the wheat, banana. Wheat in beer can be great in microscopic quantities, and I was hoping that would be the case here. But it’s not, which is a pity because I hate banana flavour in beer and I would have quite enjoyed this little quencher without it.

From bottle in tapered shaker. Pours hazy golden with frothy head and aroma of yeasty fruit bread. A bit of sweetness in the finish as the hop profile is fairly subdued. A good summer brew and makes great beer bread!

KeefOz (1265) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2015
BB 10.06.16. Poured a hazy pale golden colour with a one-finger white frothy head that retained well and laced well. Carbonation high and quite coarse. Aroma subtly of malt with a hint of citrus. Tastes the same, all quite subdued. Light body. Finished somewhat crisply and a bit dry. Ordinary

LimeGreenHalo (13) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Thin head that sizzles down after about 20 seconds but leaves a reasonable amount of lacing around the edges. A misty straw colour with lots of carbonation. A very clean, slightly clinical aroma with some touches of mango. The mouthfeel is one powered by the aforementioned carbonation with some oily characteristics. The taste replicates the cleanness of the aroma with some hay characteristics from the malt balanced by a somewhat fruity grapey hop. Overall quite a bland beer that leaves a lot to be expected, nothing special but might be quite refreshing on a hot day.

Slightly bready aroma, incredibly clean, crisp finish with a moderate dryness and a lingering floral note.

TedE (728) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Clean citric hop nose. Pale hazy yellow beer with small lasting white head. Light and zingy in the mouth. Finish is an escalating fruity bitterness that lingers long. Nice beer.

Decent fresh and crisp beer. Aroma of citrus, tastes of orange and grapefruit, hazy golden with thin white head. Low bitterness.

CacheManyHose (499) - HONG KONG - JUN 6, 2015
From Americanos over Matt's 31st birthday weekend. Light straw green/gold. Barely any head. Smells of crisp floral hop. Tastes of bitter slightly woody/resin hop, corn, very light orange juice. Body is medium, softly fizzy, quite a sweet and softly tart finish. Not bad (surprised it got less than a 3.0 rating). Body and taste have a corn-y malt sweetness but it's balanced by decent hop bitterness.

HKdIPA (567) - HONG KONG - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle at Americanos. Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is sort of generic grassy hops. Taste is similar - clean grassy bitterness. Light body with dissipating bitterness. Quite fizzy. Not bad for a sort of simple clean beer.
