Tried at the brewhouse on a recent trip to Singapore.

Pours an orangey gold colour, with a filmy white head and some consistent carbonation. Colour is very nice. The lack of head is a shame, but the lacing is good. Overall, a pretty good looking beer.

Light hop aroma with a slight fruit character. Pretty thin and perhaps of a bit smoky, bit not bad. Stylistically, I can see its genesis copying Anchor. Not bad.

Taste is clean and crisp, with a slight hook of odd steam beer bitterness. Clean but drinkable. Mouthfeel is crisp and round. Overall, it's not terribly extreme, but it has some nice characters which fit stylistically.

Probably the best beer I had on the day at Brewerkz. Overall, it's not a life-changing experience, but you're pressed for options in Singapore. At least this beer delivers something vaguely interesting.

As it happens, there's a California Steam beer in Singapore. Cool. I thought I'd try it.
Nice copper, mahogany color, looks rich. Head is slightly small and forms an off-white ring along the edge of the glass (even though the glass is round...hmmm).
Some sweet smells to it. A touch of spice like saffron, or clover. Hints of earth tones if a deep whiff is taken slowly.
Starts with a sweet taste on the tip of the tongue then moves to a more malty, earthy finish. In the middle is a caramel hint. Served a bit colder than I would have liked, but I couldn't wait to try it. I think it needed to open a bit. Still, the feel is great...leaves a bit of aftertaste that made me want another sip....sip...gone
Nice beer.

"Lager fermented at Ale Temps" is the essence of the description of this beer.

It's got a pretty body. Honey coloured and crystal clear, but with very little head, which seems to be a trademark of this brewpub. Smell is pretty disappointing. Not much there; neither malt nor hops. It tastes like some of my homebrews that sometimes get fruity from being fermented at slightly too high of a temperature. I don't necessarily consider this a good quality. This has sort of a harsh taste. A light body with good carbonation. Mouthfeel is the saving grace of this brew. Drinkability is helped by the mouthfeel, but the taste doesn't leave me wanting for more.

Before even taking a second look at the menu, Paul pointed at the Steam Beer and
beamed at us. The Steam Beer was nothing short of a great beer; the type that
most folks would love. It runs a little light for me but it has a pretty strong
and good taste. It seemed like a lager but there is a light, albeit clear, ale
taste to it which pleasantly surprised me a little. I grabbed the menu and looked
at the specs again: "Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures, round and clean".
Eureka! Hops are probably low for this one... maybe that's why this beer is a
little lacking in character. Nonetheless definitely a great beer for everyone; I
highly reccommend Brewerkz goers to give this one a try if the haven't already.

OK OK. God Bless Fritz and saving AnchorSteam!

I love Steam Beer, California Common or what ever. Lagar Beer ferrmented at ale temp.

The Malty, estery beer that is steam is well represented here in Singapore.

God Bless Brewerkz for keeping it alive.

I wish it could be served with local cuisine like Chilli Crab or Pepper crab or any spicy dish here. It would be so succulant!

The Malty estery flavor would go so well with any locl dish.

It is marly, cloudy and awesome!

Really enjoyed this one on tap at Brewerkz visit to Singapore. As far as I am concerned it is the gem of the establishment. Really nice bronzey-reddish look to the beer with a great hoppy sweet smell. Nice bold mouthfeel followed by a clean, bitter finish.
