Keeping in the tradition of the 19th century California brewers, we use a lager yeast to ferment 2xSteam. Historically, this style is fermented at higher temperatures than a typical lager and that is just how we’re brewing our version. The birth California Common style is rooted in the Victorian age. We use the technology of today to replicate what may have been, much like steampunks. Of course in that way, we have to twist things up a bit. As is with our 2x line of beers, 2xSteam is turned up a few clicks to be over 8% abv. An unusual take on an unusual style. FOOD PAIRINGS: Particularly tasty with cheddar cheeses, grilled chicken, salmon, salads, light desserts like shortcake & shortbread cookies AVAILABILITY: Spring-Summer / 12oz (6pk and 24 bottle cases) / draught STYLE: Double Uncommon BREWED SINCE: 2013 FERMENTATION: Lager yeast at ale temperature, two varieties of hops, three varieties of malts COLOR: Deep Gold EFFERVESCENCE: Light carbonation NOSE: Earthy, woody, slight mint aroma FLAVOR: Lightly toasted malts with woody and earthy hops, subtle but firm bitterness BITTERNESS: Low BODY: Low-medium SERVING TEMPERATURE: 40-45ºF

    Light opaque golden yellow with small lacing white foam ring. Aroma is malty with some wood tones. Taste is firm bitter with some earth notes. Short lasting aftertaste. (Madrid 201405)

    Beautiful clear amber pour with a tall near white head, big lazy lacing throughout. Nice malty presence very nice balanced with earthy hops, both in the aroma and flavors, some white grapes, caramel, fruity and earthy hops. Nice light bitter linger with a very sneaky well-hidden ABV. Really dig this one.

    Malty aroma has a strong yeasty and slightly fruity overtone. Pours a clear, bubbly, dark amber with a thick and fluffy pale golden tan head. Flavor fills the mouth with malty, hoppy and yeasty notes plus a fruity undertone and a hint of - hmmmmmm, spiked caramel. That's the best way I can describe it. Texture has about average thickness and not much fizz. Well, I guess one could call it "uncommon."

    This 8% "Imperial Steam" is wicked smooth and sultry, no indication of the high abv. Woodsy with a light fruity/floral hop kiss and some dry grainy and lightly toasted/nutty malt. Deep copper body, thin white head and heavy lacing. Solid hop profile right in line with the tradition of this style. Dangerously drinkable, slightly warming, and clean.

    This is my first "Imperial Steam" beer hmmm interesting. This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is somewhat hoppy with a malty presence showing up. Some sourness shows up in the finish. Overall it was ok.
