I have been very eager to taste this beer and thanks to Chris for getting it back for me from
New York. :) This is my second Steam Beer I have had tried; my first being the Steam Beer draft
at Brewerkz. Naturally, I am keen to make the comparison. :) The Steam Beer pours out amber
golden in color with an average head and an average head retention; good carbonation as well.
It smells like the a typical American Lager, strong on the Barley malt. It tastes, however, less
like a lager and more like the Brewerkz Steam Beer; the ale taste. I believe it is again, the
fermenting of lager yeast at ale temperature. Nice malty yeasty taste like the Brewerkz Steam
beer; some similarities but not exactly. Very fresh and refreshing taste as well but with a
bitter finish which I would not prefer as much though it had not affected me that much. Nice
taste, similar to the Brewerkz Steam Beer but I generally prefer the Steam Beer from Brewerkz
to the Anchor's version.

Purchased at the LCBO as a single. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens ok. Pours a good 1" head that stays for a bit
S- Malt and yeast. Pretty smooth on the nose. Hint of grapefruit
T- Malty good. Not too roasted at all but lots of it. Touch of hops that are overpowered by the aforementioned malt!
M- Dry and crisp
- Ok. Nothing special and will not buy again. Don't get me wrong it's not bad, just nothing special that's all
This ok beer went well with... Hamburgers. I don't use a lot of toppings so for me it's meat and bun off the BBQ
