MyJoogTV episode featuring The Steel Wheels and the Blue Mountain Brewery Steel Wheels ESB. Time flies. And while browsing the beer section at Trader Joes, what do I come across? None other than the bottle form of the Steel Wheels ESB - $9 for a pint. The bottle itself is pretty cool, with a sketching of the band surrounding a single microphone. Old time style. The beer is sweeter than I remembered, plenty of caramel malt flavors - and a rich creaminess. The tail provides some hop balance (30 IBUs), perhaps a little more needed for my palette - but a solid beer nevertheless. Pair this one with Red Wing.
