Golden color with a light crisp body. Smells of citrus, lemon and wheat prep you for, eh, not much. There's not much going on with this beer. A good summer session beer that could be quite refreshing on a hot day, but I could think of better options.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.40):
A real disappointment from Anchor here, particularly given the reputation of the brewery and my past experiences with them with this one being forgettable in almost ever area, not to mention boring and bland as well. Both the taste and smell seemed far to weak and featured too much skunk to make them enjoyable, that couple with the relatively poor mouthfeel makes this a beer I can't recommend at all.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.22.14.

A: 2 finger head. See through honey/amber.

S: Skunky hops.

T: Wheat, malt. Flower is subtle.

M: Creamy. Pretty watery after a few sips.

O: This was somewhat tasteless. It had extremely subtle flavors with almost no hop presence. It only had a little bit of malt presence, which surprised me. I expected that it wouldn't have been hop-heavy as it comes from an earlier time, but it should have had malt flavor.

Rating: C-
