This pours a clear, straw yellow color with an average white head. The aroma is weaker with hints of grain and wheat. The taste is fairly simple yet quite delicious. The texture is very appropriate for the style to make this an easy drinking brew. Leaves a lingering grain after taste.

"American Retro Steamed Lager" according to their website. Delightfully bad label art that looks more like a cheap fantasy sci-fi paperback cover than a beer label. Dragon Blade: The Quest For Infinite Retro Lager Kingdoms... break out the 20-sided dice!

Pale yellow gold with rising carb trails. The head breaks right away, and fades to a thin strand around the edges. A few flecks of incidental lace in the glass.

Aroma is dull and slightly corny at first, as it warms there's a hint of wet grain husks and sweet apple from the yeast.

Watery flaccid feel with an astringent bite. Papery grains, light buttery note, light green apple. Not something i'd drink again, but not really offensive. Not in the same league as a basic style example like Anchor Steam.
