12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-clear, golden color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a lacing of bright white, creamy, foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nicely aromatic with notes of bready, toasted malt and wheat up front, imparting aromas of biscuits and whole-wheat crackers. I also get notes of caramel, black pepper, a touch of coriander, and grassy, piney, hops.

Taste: Very nice, with strong flavors of toasted malt and wheat up front, imparting notes of freshly baked French baguettes, whole-wheat crackers, and un-sweetened whole-wheat cereal. Next comes a touch of home and caramel-like sweetness, but not a lot, followed by some faint, yet noticeable notes of spice, such as black pepper, coriander, lemon peel and saffron. Finally, the beer finishes with some nicely balanced, grassy, piney, hops. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Medium/medium-thin and extremely creamy and smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 4.6%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: What a terrific wheat beer! And I usually don’t like wheat beers, but this one is really terrific. I really love the strong flavors of toasted malt and wheat, balanced well with some subtle sweetness, spicing and hops. Highly recommended.

Anchor Brewing is well known for outstanding beers and the Summer Beer doesn't disappoint. from its sem-cloudy golden appearance to its awesome clean aroma, it is another winner for them.
The taste is sooth with an overwhelming drinkability. lightly carbonated and pours with a small head. this is a must try if Anchor products are available in your neighborhood.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Pours a nice golden straw color with an inch and a half thick, fluffy white head that lingers for about 2 minutes. Has nice lacing.

Smell - Citrus, orange peels, and wheat. A pretty tangy aroma but not complicated.

Taste - I like this a lot, although the alcohol seems weak. Bitter with citrus, maybe some lemon or orange zest, and a faint wheat flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate carbonation. Starts to fizz up if you let it linger on the tongue.

Overall - This is a very good beer.. It's very refreshing and would be great on a summer day.
