Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (orange/tangerine, grapefruit, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Light and simple aroma, but its pleasant enough. Good quaffing balance. Overall better than usual for this brewery.

12oz bottle from The Grapevine
Appearance: Clear golden with a small white head and good lacing
Aroma: Doughy, citrus, caramel and herbal

This was OK, but I didnt like it. It did get better as it warmed up.

Idiosynkrasie (7315) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2013
355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, fading, off-white head. Expressionless caramel malty aroma with unspecific fruity touch. Taste is alike with additional, minimally soapy hoppy overtones, a touch of mint. Nothing the world was waiting for.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Amber, clear, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Faint toasted malt and whole wheat bready aroma.   Very bready on the tongue, not heavy, lots of whole wheat, a little nutty, slightly mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft toasted malt finish, lingering whole wheat and nutty notes.   Pretty pedestrian.   Nothing off, but sometimes a little too bready.   Prefer Anchor Steam as it seems a bit hoppier.

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is lightly hoppy with some herbal notes and a lightly toasty maltiness. The flavor is quite hoppy for a Steam Beer, lots of spicy and herbal hops, rather fresh smelling. Some toasty and crackery maltiness. The flavor is rather hoppy with just a light bitterness, much more hoppy than any othe Steam Beer Ive come across. The malt is pretty well in the background, just lightly toasty and on the drier side. Some lingering light bitterness and fresh floral and spicy hoppiness. Pretty nice beer with a distinctive fresh hoppiness.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pretty amber beer, pleasantly active, with a nice pillowy head of off-white foam. The initial aroma is nice and woodsy, like a wet summer in the Pacific northwest. But this drinks with a more subdued earthy tone, more of a wet grassiness, tinged with a bit of almost smoky funk. (#5012, 5/9/2013)
