Pint pour at the Saucer in Raleigh.

Solid gold pour with two finger light head. Faint retention. Weak lace.

Nose is faint and slightly sour. Light malt with a touch of Belgian candy sugar.

Slightly sour hit. Moderate malt profile. Bready and chewy. Crisp finish, with a decent dose of earthy hops.

Decent session drinker, but just not my style.

Pour is between amber and straw. Somewhat near Yuengling actually. Light white head, but their beer never has a head.

Smell is Steam beer to a T. Phenols from the ale yeast, but smoothness from the lagering.

Taste is better than Anchor Steam. Hints of banana, but its really lost in the background to the malt. Its really just a adjunct lager brewed at ale temperature. Good beer, but not going to blow your mind.

Pours a rich, deep amber color with a substantial, creamy, medium-tan head. The aroma is faint but pleasant, with a combination of cereal grains, a light woodsy mustiness, and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is much more pronounced, with a predominant character of sweet brown bread and a little butterscotch, although there is a substantial pine and floral hop bitterness that balances and even takes over at times. The fine, light carbonation is active yet unobtrusive, but it allows the bready sweetness to linger a bit more than I would have liked.

Overall, this one is not my favorite offering from Fullsteam, but it is an accessible, easy-drinking beer that serves as a fine flagship for the brewery.

@ Tobacco Road (Raleigh)

Clear, dark copper color with a big, rich-looking, creamy head on top. Spicy, leafy hop aromas balanced by toast and cracker-like malts. Leafy/earthy hops continue into the flavor, lightly oily and mild overall, and some nutty, caramel malt. Medium bodied with a moderate bitterness. A nice beverage to start out with...
