Poured this at a good temperature with a very fizzy, then scummy head. Aroma was abundant tropical fruit with some yeast and hop. Flavor's a bit more traditionally steam, but not much. The heavy carbonic tang hinders. Body's a tad thin. Finish is like flavor, not very balanced, too long lasting. Never want another. Very minimally similar to a steam beer.

3.16/5  rDev -4.8%

330ml bottle 4.5% ABV bb 29 Jan 2014 Purchased and consumed in NZ in Dec. 2013.

Pale, hazy golden-yellow body with a fine white head, and champagne-like visible carbonation .

Feel: Light and thin body with medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: sweet and fruity with some bready malt in the background.

Flavor: lemony white bread with a touch of spicy hops.

O: A poor imitation of the original Anchor Steam. Not bad but not worth seeking out.

3.45/5  rDev +3.9%

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head that fades to good lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus with some malt sweetness and grain.

T: Taste of mild malt sweetness with some fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing.

O: NIce beer that goes down quite easy. Good for a few.

3.4/5  rDev +2.4%

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, but the head doesn't lasts for much time, and not much lacing down the glass.

Aroma: A nice collection of hops, sweet malt, tropical fruit and slight citrus.

Taste: Crisp light malt with some bitterness. A little grassy, and quite 'clean' compared to what the aroma hints at.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Fairly dry to the finish, with a very slight astringency.

Overall: A very easy to drink beer, but nothing special. IMHO, it could probably do with either a tad more flavour hops or a bit more sweetness to balance the astringency.

330 ML bottle

A-- Clear straw yellow. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Thin white film with a decent ringed collar. Swirl it a bit and get a two fingered head that quickly fades away to film. Good ring of lacing though.

S-- Fresh grass and malt. Otherwise not much else.

T-- Crisp grass and not much else.

M-- Crisp and lively. Light feel and high carbonation. Grass finish to this.

O-- Good for warmer weather but not a lot to this at all.

Overall a beer just above average.
Hazy and light it had a slightly sour note to both the taste and the smell , which I always associate with yeast and dont find particularly satisfying .
Certainly a nice enouh brew , perhaps more suited to really hot weather
