Included in the 2011 Beer Camp mix pack. Anchor Steam was one of the first micros available to me years ago, so the California Common style holds some nostalgia. Sierra Nevada hit the ball out of the park with this, eclipsing the Anchor standard. Surprisingly well hopped, with a depth of flavor of an ale, but the body and drinkability of a lager. No grain notes at all, which was both pleasing and surprising. ABV is a touch higher than I would have expected, but I'll take the label's word for it. I'd like to see this become a regular seasonal. (548 characters)
