I'm not a big lager fan, so this could be a little skewed. Nice coloring for a steam beer. Light reddish-brown. Decent foam with good lacing. Again, not a lager fan, so taste was a bit BMC-ish. I would definitely recommend it to lagerites. Having it in a can was kinda cool too.

amber lager, the can says something like "quite possibly the best american amber lager in the world", which is a rather bold statement, but maybe they arent that far off. its richer than most, rust colored and heady, with a nose of copper and nuts and clean lager yeast, exceptionally nutty really, with more going on than most. the flavor too is quite robust. malty as heck but not sweet in the slightest, frothy expansive feel makes it seem big for a lager, and the finish is clean. properties of a nut brown in here, protein heavy and a little chocolate malt maybe, but its powered by big amber malt that hasnt left much sugar behind. sessionable because of its cleanness, and its not boring. a well made beer from steamworks, maybe its time i revisit some of their brands. its been awhile and this was pretty solid for what it is.

Clear, copper-colored body with an initially thick, white head that gradually fades to a thin foamy layer. Light roasted grain scent with a touch of mown grass. Light malt character with a corresponding balance of hop bitterness. Medium-light body, smooth feel, crisp and dry finish.
A decent lager with a good balance of malt and hop characteristics. Nothing earth-shattering but an overall likable thirst quencher.

Small light tan head settles into a thin but decent lacing above a crystal clear bright copper colored lager.
Light aroma consisting of citrus to piney hops and a bready to caramel malts.
The taste is on the lighter side with light roasted caramel malts with just a hint of the citruspine hops coming through.
A light dryish aftertaste with just a hint of malts sticking around on this light to medium bodied drink.
A light taste, not bad but not a lot there either, I think I'll look for something with a little more snap to it.

Served on draught into a pilsner glass in high altitude Fort Collins, Colorado. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a three finger head of slight cream, fair thickness, and pretty decent retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper-amber.
Sm: Slight hops, caramel, and light cream. A mild strength aroma.
T: Pleasant malt, slight cream, and light hops. Decently balanced, if simple. I like the build for what it is. The caramel is well-handled.
Mf: Smooth and wet, sort of suiting the style.
Dr: A decent beer for the style. Okay quality, but largely unremarkable.
Serving type: on-tap
