A - crystal clear, deep amber with a red hue, creamy thick off white head. Sheets of lace down the glass.
S - herbal hops, gentle malt sweetness with a hint of breadiness
T - get a lot more of the woody/rustic hop notes in the flavour, nicely matched by the bready malt. Sweetness is low, and virtually no fruity character. Finish is dry and bitter, with lingering woody hops.
M - light bodied, refreshing. Medium carbonation. Very smooth. Extremely easy to drink.
D - damn tasty and refreshing. very unique session beer.
My first venture into Steam Beer (I don't count the Sleemans Steam I tried 10 years ago). The aroma reminds me somewhat of pilsener, but the taste itself is unique and comes across as rustic. The overall effect is somewhere between a pilsener and an english bitter. I'm gonna have to get off my butt and brew one of these.
Thanks to Mattt for the bottle!
