look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Color is your average copper tint. Head is substantial. What is impressive is the amount of lacing on this sucker. It's like fizzy octopus tentacles climbing up the mug to greet me.
Smell: Malt is prominent, with hops in the background.
Taste: Malty like a good lager. It's bitter while in the mouth, but a sweetness comes through in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Decent body. Well-carbonated.
Drinkability: Definitely a session candidate. Unoffensive, yet flavorful, with a low ABV.
Notes: This was my first steam beer. I guess this makes sense since this is apparently the original steam beer. I know this style combines elements of lagers and ales, but this beer definitely seemed like a hearty lager to me. In particular it seemed similar to an Octoberfest lager, which is not a bad thing at all. The next time I want a malty lagerish beer when its not October, I'll think of this.
