Steam Beer

Steam Beer has long been a brewing tradition in Great Britain. The name comes from the inevitable hiss that emanated from the barrels of warm beer when they were tapped. The Germans developed a similar style called dampfbier, which translated literally is steam beer.

Today, there are few legitimate examples of this style, although many other beers have similar profiles. All-malt amber ales and lagers that have a percentage of caramel malt in the mash ( the porridge-like substance consisting of grain and water, which is created in the early stages of the brewing process ) will simulate the palate. Hop bitterness achieved by the use of the Northern Brewer variety of hop, along with a pungent hop bouquet, will closely resemble the hop profile of this style.
