keanex (1789) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottled April 12, 2013.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with an amber hue and a steady stream of carbonation in the body. The head is stout with good retention, appearing dense and rocky. Lots of lacing is left on the glass and the head settles into a thick messy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is weak, but a bit earthy and a touch herbal. This isnít very appealing to me.
Taste: The intro is light, leading to a malty mid-taste that has an earthy quality. The finish is a bit woody with a slightly spicy finish and an herbal quality.
Palate: Medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: Iím not too familiar with the style, but this isnít something I enjoy very much. The finish has this spicy herbal quality that isnít off-putting, but I donít enjoy it.

Sorry S.T., I really love most of your lineup, but this didnít 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. Donít worry, I still love Southern Tier--just a rare miss.

Nephilium (1702) - Cleveland, 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 wonít 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. Itís a Cali Common just on steroids a bit. Steamy and ..well just common.

riversideAK (6160) - 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 (851) - 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.
