3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hallenbrick Brewery. Pours a clear amber brown with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malt, sweet fruits, and bready malt. Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, oatmeal, and sugars. Decent APA (not sure why they call it "Steam").

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
from a 36 hour old growler...
fairly dark copper hued brown with a small off white head.
the aroma is really hoppy with a sizable malt background... dirty spicy hops mix with some citrus pith, caramel and flowers.
the flavor of chocolate shows p as it warms... before it does... caramel, citrus pith, flowers, peaches, dirty earthy hops and a very dry slightly resinous finish. hoppiness sticks around to parch to palate.
it is quite full bodied from the maltiness yet it is not sweet. it has some oomph to the mouth feel. this pairs great with food and reminds me a lot of four peaks steam... 7/4/7/4/16/3.8

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 ReRate-Tap at brewpub-11/20/043 pours a copper hue with no head whatsoever. citric hop aroma with a touch of caramel sweetness. the beer has suffered from a flimsy watery palate. very low carbonation. buttery hops. another TMBC beer suffering from diacytl.
tap at brewpub-pours a nice amber hue with minimal head. very hoppy aroma for a steam beer. piney, citrus hops with toasty malts. Kinda reminds me of SNCA, but this is a Lager? Crazy!!! rating 3.7

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Deep copper-colored beer with a thin sticky head. This is a super well balanced malt-hoppy goodness with a tannic finish. I think this beer rocked!

Poured a clear amber with a thin head. I probably had palate fatigue but this tasted like the Red Rye. Hoppy aroma and flavor with a bitter finish. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 A great session brew with a dark amber body. Creamy head with the aroma of fresh cascades. Might be brewed in the same manner as anchor steam but is far darker with a lot more character. I drank two of their liter mugs of this.
re-rate 3/18/04: Found out that its' made with 1056 but is cold conditioned. Lots of hoppiness and could easily pass for an ESB. A great seesion brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Copper body and nice hop spice in this beer. Darker, bigger body, and hoppier than any steam beer that I've encountered. A good food beer.
