Steelhead

I ended up in Eugene, OR, for a day back in December and had lunch at the Steelhead Brewpub. Standard six shot taster tray here, but when the waitress set it down and rattled off the beers represented I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t include their seasonal winter brew. She took pity on me and brought me a complimentary taste, bless her heart. Mmm, pity beer.

Steelhead Brewing taster tray + 1 — Eugene, OR

    Rob’s Picks

  • Hairy Weasel Hefeweizen – pleasant aroma. Crisp and refreshing, nice. Doesn’t need the lemon wedge.
  • Raging Rhino Red – a subtle red. More of an amber with red tendencies. Liked it.
  • Heat Miser – the winter brew. Basically a milder (except for alcohol content, maybe) Hopasaurus Rex. Tasty, though. Hint of peppermint.
    The Rest

  • Barracuda Blonde – kinda light, kinda bland. Hint of out-of-place hoppiness.
  • Bombay Bomber IPA – pretty good, but a bit heavier than I like.
  • Hopasaurus Rex – yikes. Way too caramel-y. Sort of a light-colored hoppy winter beer.
  • 12 Gauge Porter – okay. A little watery, but otherwise a standard porter.
