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.

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.

I have to say that I live in Delaware and this was a can. I would like to get this as a draft and visit the review again. I do think that it lacked a good head and a crisp freshness. After all, this can could have been in transit a while. The amber lager style is best served fresh as possible.

Clear red colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smells malty with a scent of scorched sugar and mealy grain. Toasted grain and mild grass and tea scents. Mildly yeasty. Very mild fruity aromas.

Starts out mildly sweet with a caramel flavor. Mild hop leaf with a slight tobacco flavor. Tastes OK but is really light.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall this is OK but nothing great.
