Sorry S.T., I really love most of your lineup, but this didn’t do it for me. This should be "uncommon" because this beer posses few characteristics that are appealing. It is soft, dull, doughy, and unbalanced. The worst out of the 2x series by far. Don’t worry, I still love Southern Tier--just a rare miss.

Nephilium (1554) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Mild toast and fruit aroma. Pours a clear amber with minimal head. Very large malt presence, with biscuits and caramel coming through. Very little in the way of hops. The alcohol is really well hidden, and not noticeable. Overall this is a middle of the road beer, nothing about it really stands out, and I probably won’t be getting more of it. If you prefer malts to hops, you may enjoy this one more.

(Bottle). Great twist on the traditional California Common beer. This boosts the ABV without losing the mild favor or morphing the style. Nice idea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good session beer.

This is my first "Imperial Steam" beer hmmm interesting. This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is somewhat hoppy with a malty presence showing up. Some sourness shows up in the finish. Overall it was ok.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nothing super specific stands out about this beer. It’s a Cali Common just on steroids a bit. Steamy and ..well just common.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2013
Mostly toasty with some bready notes, some underlying caramel and residual sugars, earthy slightly herbal moderate hop profile. Pours golden amber thin head. Flavors of toasted malts, some caramel notes, light residual sugar, herbal leafy earthy hop notes, perhaps a little wood or dirt notes. Light lingering hop bite with some residual sugar. "Meh" (Jon, 2008).

sfontain (846) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods. Pale golden pour, half-finger head disappears into completely nothing; very light lacing. Aroma shows notable hops; bread and light wood. Flavor doughy with significant bitterness for such a light beer; the 8% is very evident and is sharp and harsh rather than pleasantly warm. Light, lively body. Too much alcohol for such a light beer.

Pours clear light copper color with off white head. Earthy and floral aroma with some bread. Sweet butterscotch and dough flavors with a little earthiness. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

aroma of mostly caramel malts and lager yeastiness..clear golden/reddish amber with pure white head that dissipates as it warms...taste brings out the bitter and spicy quality along with the forementioned malty base..palate..medium bodied good carbonation slightly bitter finish..overall..the only other beer ive tried for this style is anchor steam this isa touch maltier and stronger,however,it is drinkable and refreshing..let me put it this way if you like anchor steam,sam adams boston,or even michelob youll like this just as much maybe more
