look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A 25 cl short-necked bottle with a twist-off-cap from a Swedish micro-brewery. That must be a first...

A: Slightly hazy deep golden pour with a rather small white head, a bit airy. Only some lacings.

S: Bready, grassy, grainy. Lots of floral hops; elder and lots of citric notes. Rather rich in bitter hops as well.

T: Lots of both bitter and floral hops up front; citric notes, but also some elder-flowers. Lots of bready malt, at least a pinch must be caramell. Much more bitter than what the smell led me to believe - NICE.

M: Long, really long bitter aftertaste. Body is medium while carbonaton is on the milder side for the style. Very refreshing.

O: This is a robust beer, but still refreshing. More complex than other Steam beers I've had earlier. The bitter hops made all the difference.

The enormous head is beige and compact. It sinks slowly leaving lots of thick lacing. The cloudy liquid is gold-orange (17 EBC).

The smell is hoppy and a bit tart. Rough yeasty and malty notes, some smooth sweetness. Hints of toffee and flowers. Some plastic notes in the background.

The taste is bitter with quite a lot of green peas and other boiled vegetables. Pale malts gives some sweetness. The flavours are rough like they are supposed to be, but they are maybe a bit too rough? Bread, more vegetables, hints of matured cheese. The body is light. The aftertaste is surprisingly short with some bitter, almost metallic, hops, unclean yeasty notes and a smooth sweetness.

The carbonation is medium strong, the mid-sized bubbles short lived. The liquid is a bit dry.

A hoppy California common. An quite an unclean one, too.
