2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy golden pour with a white head. Lemon peel, a light tartness, and sweet malt up front on the nose. Mild spiciness, a touch of yeast, grass, and some very faint banana. The flavor is a bit tart and rather dry. Mild wheat and bread sweetness. Some yeast, a touch of cardboard, and a definite grassiness. A metallic tinge on the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale clouded appearance. Mild fruity aroma. Slightly sweet, lemony, grainy flavor, mild finish. Not much wrong but not much to talk about either.

This is a bad bad beer. Bad aroma, bad taste. The lemon saves it, but certainly not a beer i'll have again.

The ass behind the bar (who shorted me BTW) droped a lemon in my beer while watching me shake my head and mouth ’NO NO!’. Total prick, though he may have been trying to save this lousy beer. The Steelhead in SF is a disgusting place to drink beer. The aroma of sterilizer pervades and yet this beer is still contaminated. Traces of dish soap in the finish. Very effervescent, crisp, trace of citrus (despite the lemon).
