Bov (9876) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2014
draught@Erzbierschof - translucid and bright red-amber beer under a solid and long lasting creamy foam; light yeasty but mainly fruity and flowery (elderflowers) aroma; rounded palate, full-bodied and creamy/velvety mouthfeel; decently bitter but with a fair residual sweetness; light chewy aftertaste of red fruits and perfumed flowers - charming and dangerously drinkable

sloshgator (486) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Southern Tier 2X Steam has a sessionable quality that hides the higher ABV well. Light citrus hop aroma coming from a light amber pour with a decent initial head that dies a little too fast. Taste is heavy on the pine notes with some citrus quality. Finish is slightly bitter with a nice peppery quality. 2X Steam is a refreshing quaff.

sfuen03 (353) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 11, 2014
Dark amber liquid, average sized head, white and quickly vanishing. Classic herbal lager aroma, with some fruity notes (pear?). Light, nice mouthfeel, long bitter finish. Taste is a little licorice, smooth bitterness, very good balance.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle:   Golden, small to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Sweaty aroma, slightly vegetal, musty, ugh....   Sweet corny start, rather heavy in both sweetness and corn like adjuncts.   A little mealy too, make that more than a little.   Compared to Anchor Steam this one is severely lacking.   Feels thick that’s for sure.   A little astringency on the backside.   I don’t know what this is, but its not as smooth as most California Commons.   And no idea how it rates as high as it does.   Too sweet and cornmeal like.

BeerKurve (509) - - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Orange with a slight haze, thin soapy head, and decent lacing; No Carbonation. Aroma of bread, floral hops, roasted barley and mild pale malts. Same goes for the flavor but some very strong booziness;. Light body and no carbonation. Not really digging this.

obguthr (4165) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Moderate corn nose. Hazy amber, medium foamy head. Surprising intensity, very lagery, corn is dominant, just sweet enough to temper the intensity. Grass appears at midpalate, significantly strong for the style. Some cherry notes are also present. Medium body. I have not had a great deal of experience with this style, but this is by far the most memorable.

fiercepanda (600) - Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2014
A clear golden orange beer with a barely there white head. The aroma is sweet malt and lots of grain with a little fruitiness. The flavor is lemon and grain with a barely bitter hop finish.
