Poured from bottle. Eh...whats to say. I didnt really like this one. Its uninteresting, somewhat bitter. Not even close to wheat-like. Not a fan of this one, and I expected more from Anchor. Glad I only got a single.
But, it's a cool bottle, nice design...hope the recycling guys like it.

Cute little anchor bottle. Pour is very pale yellow with a small white "whipped egg white" head that doesn't last. Smell is musty with some sulfur and veggies, kinda like a bad cologne. Decomposing lemons are present in the aroma and the flavor. Overall reminds me of a American macro lager with sweaty gym sock and citrus. The flavor starts off decently, but the finish is just awful. No thanks.

A- Light golden with a nice white head that leaves lacing.
S- Not impressed with the smell. Very wheaty, but almost smells sour.
T- Very wheaty and barely taste the hops. Too light for me, and does not leave any kind of aftertaste. Not satisfying.
M- For the little taste, not enough carbonation. Very thin overall.
O- I am biased because IPA's are my favorite, but this beer was not even enjoyable for me. Craving an IPA now because this is far too light and thin.

Fairly dark gold, it has a rather big, off-white head which shrinks slowly to a thin, creamy top and leaves decent lace.
The aroma is pear, honey, and grain. It's ok, but not great.
The taste is too thin, bland, and rough with a rough bitternes that is far too strong for this beer and its thin character. It is mostly light lemon and crackers. It's worse with food.

Big let-down, the other beers from Anchor i've had have been delicious, this basically taste like a bland (but well made) lager, thin, grainy, watery, nothing really really struck a chord with it being a wheat beer either, is this what all American wheats are like? The closest thing to Cascade Summer Blonde i can remember having, only this is a bit better.

Paid $7.99 for a six pack.
A rather disappointing showing from the usually solid folks at Anchor. Pretty in the glass, a very light wheat beer. Almost tastes infected/metallic. Tastes like it came out of a can, or was sitting warm somewhere for a year.
Still, I paid for it, so I'll drink the other 5. Hopefully it'll get better.

Six pack bottles.
Bottle pours a yellow color with a lot of head that dissolves almost immediately. The smell is not very strong or clear. I almost feel like I smell leeks or some sort of vegetable. The taste is also really bland. A little bit of bitter, but not else, with maybe a little donspecific citrusy taste. The mouthfeel is a little sharp to the tongue and not smooth at all, but has a thinner texture. Beer overall is not easy to drink.
