BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Moab Brewery
Utah, United States
themoabbrewery.com

Style: California Common / Steam Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our steamer beer is a unique 100% style lager. Brewed with a special strain of lager yeast that works better at warmer temperatures. This method dates back to the late 1800s, when refrigeration was a greater luxury. Amber in color, medium bodied with a malty character. Mildly fruity with an assertive hop bitterness and a crisp clean finish.

One of the earlier breweries to put their offerings into cans. This pours a dark golden yellow to light amber in a seemingly familiar appearance contrasted with the originator Anchor Steam. Appearance is solid, head is 1/2" on the top and has above average retention.

Aroma hits the toasted malt notes, doesn't really reveal too much in the way of a lager or fruity lager steam kind of beer yeast, more like a familiar AAL type of lager yeast. Nothing in terms of corn, seems all barley.

Taste is pretty normal. Like a bulked up macro lager in the malt department, but otherwise, the lager yeast and high carbonation seem pretty traditional at this point in time. Its a decent beer, but impossible to get drunk off of without any wow power that a low abv beer would need to drink more than one of.

Interesting little beer. Aroma is cool, toasty and a touch smoky. Flavors follow the nose. Theres caramel, some dank, with a hit of smoke and lime. I'd recommend you try it, as I've never had a lager quite like this except for maybe a Vienna.

Deep copper to amber in color with a quarter inch head of creamy beige head. The aroma is of chestnuts and caramel. I'm tasting light flavors of chestnut, caramel, and just a hint of smoke. The mouth is light, smooth, and crisp.

Can poured into a glass; modest carbonation and nice head. Clear Amber color, light on the palate with subtle malts. A descent beer but not really one to rave about

Decent lager. Thin and watery body; toasty sweet malts up front, and a slight bitter grassy hop in the aftertaste. No lace on glass; poured a 1 finger white foamy head; red color. Smells sweet, toasty, malty, and grainy. Reminds me of an Oktoberfest or Vienna Lager.
