Brewed by Motor City for The Henry Ford/Greenfield Village and available, so far, only in the museum and a couple places in the village.

"Grolsch Style" flip top brown pint bottle that comes with a little card attached that talks about the inspiration for the beer. Poured into a pint glass.

Light amber in color with much less carbonation than Anchor Steam. I wonder if this is more true to style as original steams might have had less carbonation. Thin head that falls to a veiled ring in a couple minutes.

Malty nose with some caramel and a slight biscuit like note. Faint hop presence but overall the nose is a little weak.

The malts give it an almost amber lager flavor upfront but the hops do come into play more than they did in the nose and things take a more familiar direction such as Anchor Steam does. Very dry into the middle with a fuller hop flavor that is almost citric leading into a lingering dryness.

The mouth is a little flatter than expected but the dryness from the hop profile gives it some texture that I like. In fact the mouth helps the drinkability a lot. Good summer beer that holds up fairly well to the most well known example of this style.
