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.

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

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.

I tried this at the brewery. It poured a clear golden with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had subtle grain notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with biscuit flare. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was an ok beer.

Poured from a tall can into a glass. One finger of head on an amber colored body. The aroma is a fragrant wet grain smell. The taste is nice with light grain, mild bitter and a little spice. Fairly rich taste for a lager.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
A lager with some heft.

Orange glow with good clarity and a sticky off white head which slowly dies. Lightly toasted grains on the nose with a mild hop presence. Very thin light body but carbonation is lower than expected. Light malty flavors and not much else. Faint bitterness. light caramel notes and even a faint cola flavor but his is a pretty bland and light beer. Drinkable and not much else.

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.

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.
