I love a good Steam Beer, but was concerned on how one would come out doubled. It actually is a little light color-wise for a steam beer. The aroma is sweet and malty, with a bit of hoppiness. The taste? Again, I've never had a double steam beer. For better or for worse, they nailed this. It does taste like a doubled version of Anchor's Steam. However, like the majority of double pilsners, it just comes off too sweet and boozy.

Appearance is a cloudy light copper with a half finger of lacing. This offering is heavier in both body and flavor than the standards of this style. The flavor is malty with an almost molasses-like sweetness. The finish is semi-dry and lightly bitter. There is also a faint lingering sweet note.
I think that this experiment proves that not all beer styles are better "doubled" or "imperialed."
