I'm definitely a fan of this beer. It's not a heavy-duty beer, but is definitely yummy. Perhaps it's that I'm a fan of San Fran/California.. perhaps not. I do like the taste, as it is crisp and light without being bland. This is the second time I've purchased a single bottle of this lovely beer, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a six-pack next time. ;)

Bought this for the first time tonight on hatteras island NC. Chilled it and had it after supper.

Very attractive bottle as all anchor beers.

Pour-did not have a lot of head as label describes but may be from pouring carefully

Appearance- clear yellow-amber

Smell- of wheat malt but nothing to write home about

Taste- cereal with nice carbonation but bitter semi dry finish. Good body. Not the sometimes usual banana taste from ale yeast.

Overall- my beer taste changes all the time and maybe this was not the time for me to have the summer beer. It was good but as mentioned before, nothing to write home about
