TedE (490) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Golden copper colour with two finger white head. Distant malt nose. Medium carbonation. Slightly bitter watery taste with a bit of malt sweetness and a tiny touch of floral hops in the finish. No world beater but not bad. If this was brewed by 3 guys in a shed out the back of Bungendore people would rate it higher. But itís made by the biggest company in Australia (Wesfarmers) so confirmation bias is a factor in most Steamrail ratings.

Morboso (110) - ECUADOR - APR 23, 2015
Pretty poor example of an amber ale, not much of anything really, disappointed after being pleasantly surprised by the pale ale. Pretty much a very ordinary mass lager with a few barely noticeable token characteristics of an amber.

Full bodied? Itís thin and watery. I must admit to falling into the crafty trap on my way to a bbq. After having read that steamrail is basically coles homebrand, Iím annoyed that I gave them my money, partly because I feel like Iíve been deceived and partly because the beer is crap.

Medium carbonic acid gas, medium aroma, good to enjoy lightly. Color is darker than any other pale ales.

All varieties of Steamrail taste exactly the same. Itís just the different colour labels that make you think they are different.

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2014
330ml bottle. I consumed it straight from the bottle, so I canít comment on its looks. Citrus hops and toffee malt are the predominant aromas. Floral and lemon hops up front give way to strong toffee malt in the mid-palate, which persists into the finish. This is pretty simple in flavour; not especially bad, but not too exciting either.

floydian1 (1168) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 25, 2014
Malty (toffee), sweet and rather thin on the palate with somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Amber-brown appearance with small off-white head. Sampled from a 330ml bottle purchased First Choice Liquor. No great shakes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
