A lager review a week

Adrian Tierney-Jones, secretary of the British Guild of Beer Writers and Editor of the forthcoming ‘1001 Beers to drink before you die’ , has set himself the task of writing a review of lager every week. What a fine idea.
The first one is Steamworks Brewing Company‘s Steam Engine, an American style amber lager.

Dark amber/chestnut in colour it’s got an aroma that reminds me of a Dime Bar that has been in your coat pocket for a while and started to get slightly melty. It’s not über-sweet though, there’s a roasted firmness on the nose that steers it away from the sort of sweetness that mentally rots your teeth.

Sounds good to me. Who said lager was fizzy tasteless stuff?
