My first beer of this style, although I'm still not clear what the 'steam' in 'steam beer' adds to it. Not bad, though.
Poured from a big, fat 650 mL bottle into a standard pint glass (had to refill, since it didn't all fit). A nice clear orangy amber colour.
Smell is hoppy, with pepper, flowers, and citrus fairly evident. Flavour is somewhat bitter with some earthiness. Hints of citrus, particularly lemons, and apples as well. Very light and smooth on the palate, with a slight bitter or acidic aftertaste and moderate carbonation.
Overall OK, but nothing special, and not worth the price charged at the LCBO. If you can get it locally though, go for it.
