Poured into a standard shaker from the bottle on 4/5/13. The color is a nice bronzed amber color with deep orange hues to it. It has a very active head of off-white bubbles and promises to be pretty active on the tongue. I've recently become a fan of the Northern Brewer hops and they definitely work well on the nose of this beer. The beer is very much full on malt and caramel with that distinctive lager yeast smell of fresh baked bread. The Northern Brewer hops play well to the background with good woodsy and minty smell to the background. The taste is fairly mild, but like expected, very active. It's a good malt and caramel backbone with that great scrubbing of the Northern Brewer hops giving that woodsy taste and a touch of lemon rind maybe to it. The mouthfeel is very full bodied and again, very active carbonation. This is a great session beer and very good overall. Without much surprise, it is the standard in my mind of a Steam Beer (I refuse to use California Common lol).

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
