COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours brightly golden with a thick head. It has a strong tropical bouquet of mango and passion fruit from the citra hops with a subtle malt sweetness. It has a fairly low bodied mouthful with moderate carbonation. It has subtle citrusy flavour with a crisp bitter finish. A great palate cleanser and thirst quencher.

GoufCustom (883) - HONG KONG - DEC 3, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.

Cloudy hazy straw golden colour with no yeast sediments; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Small sticky lacing with minimal carbonation; Fragrant aroma of Ale malt, with strong grapefruit, passion fruits, light peaches, floral nectar, strong molasses, strong yeast, very light lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of thinned light Ale malt, with wheaty dryness, light grapefruit, lemon, light lime, very light spices, yeast, moderate bitter hops and strong grass; Light body, dry and thin palate; Mouth feel Ale base but strongly thinned by wheat, with dry crispyness but not tart. Malt is underwhelming, so are the hops: fairly low-fi grapefruit and lemon, moderate bitterness and quite strong green grass, with taste not as impressive as the nose. Fair and moderate bitter finish; Dry after taste, Crisp and wheaty to mouth.

Comments: This one is almost like a midget version of White IPA, if only it was meant to be: Nice floral and tropical hops aroma being upstaged by wheaty dryness, thin malts and underwhelming hop taste. As drinkable as a hopped-up Hoegaarden, I rather have a full-body blond ale instead. So-so.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2014
Keg. A slightly hazy golden yellow with a small but lasting and lacing white head. Lemon, pale malt biscuit notes, grassy hops and some orange characters comprise the profile. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a modest intensity and length bitterness to finish. A relatively standard, moderately hopped golden alenwith good freshness and quaffability.

Malrider69 (48) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
This beer looks the part, but there is a lack of complexity in flavour - in fact there is very little flavour at all.

Hints of citrus in aroma, light carbonation. Taste is clean, lager-like with cleaner finish. Unfamiliar with the style but enjoyable and refreshing.
