3.8/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep amber with a diminishing off-white head, and virtually no lacing. The smell is on style, and you can easily pull different malts out of this, including some light smokiness that sits in the background to let you know it's there, and is not Anchor Steam or Yuengling. the taste is good, and average, but that is the type of beer this is. I'll be darned if you cannot pull some clove hints out of this, like they ran a batch of Christmas Ale in the same lines or something. Overall, a roasted malt kinda beer, that's worth a try, especially if yo are a fan of this type.

It's best purpose, it is a great crossover for macro drinkers. Just tell them it is the closest thing to Yuengling out there, only better, and they won't turn it away, and will likely enjoy it.

Draught in Phoenixville: This one pours a clear, somewhat amber color. There was a bit of a head and some lacing. The aroma is thin, with some sweet malts to the nose. The taste is dry, with no real sweetness at all. It does go down smooth. This one is very drinkable with a medium body. A good session beer. I wouldn't have pegged it to be a steam beer, however.

4.08/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appears an amber gold color with a minimal bubbly white head and minimum amounts of lacing.
Smell is of creamy, sweet malt with a mild floral and biscuit aroma.
Taste is of a balanced attack of sweet and sour bits of malt balanced with a floral hop bite that seems to be just right.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with good carbonation.

Finger licking good.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Deep amber with some nice flecks of white foam, and minimal lacing. The aroma consists of sweet-ish malts, biscuits, and a twist of citrus. The taste is fruity up front with a nice bready malt taste and a nice finish of biscuity malts. The aftertate is also very nice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and spot on and the drinkaiblity is excellent. A very good daily drinker, impressive in its clarity, balance, and simplicity.

This beer poured an ice tea colored amber with virtually no head. This beer was promoted as a "steam lager" and I was expecting something close to an Anchor Steam. This could be a dimmed down version of that beer. There wasn’t much in aroma here. Some graininess and a grassy bitterness. The beer is actually bittered well and leaves a tang on the tongue. Some citrus notes and a light to medium malt body. A bittersmooth lager that’s pretty drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a nice burnt orange/amber color. Very little head with some lacing.

S: Strong malty notes with some holiday spice I can't peg maybe allspice or clove. There is also some copper in the nose similar to Irish whiskey. There is a lot going on here.

T: Crisp and clean malt flavors with a puch of hop bitterness at the end.

M: Very nice small bubble creaminess and medium body. The malt coats your tongue. Bitterness hangs around for a while as well.

D: I enjoy drinking this beer. This would make for a good session beer.

Serving type: growler
