On tap. Pours a translucent mahogany color with a thin layer of head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bread and slightly sweet. Taste is sweet toasted malts, and a slight hop bitterness. Has kind of a cereal taste to it. Thin and watery mouthfeel but its a crisp and refreshing easy drinking beer. Overall, this is one of the better warm weather beers and worth having often.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz into a conical pint.
A - Orangey- gold with a hint of chill haze. Not much head, but a decent short-lived lace.
S - BLAND. Not much muchness. But not terrible. A hint of something resembling a respectable beer.
T - Very fruity with wildflowers.
M - Dry fruit and some... thing.
O - Begging forgiveness. Not at all familiar with California Steam beer. This just wasn't bad at all. It's like my opinion of Belgian beers: they just have their own little thing going on. My first impression? Honestly? "So this is what happens when you ale a lager!" Give me another try next summer.
