Anchor's Steam Beer, whether they know what the term steam means or not, is good beer. It shares qualities of its hoppier cousin Liberty but is easier to drink from the start. My sample was purchased at the LCBO, the best before date some 18 months away.
Liberty pours beautifully. A rich golden brown colour with a creamy three finger head. It simply looks good, matching the prototypes of great looking beer in your mind. The head recedes in time but it leaves behind wonderful lacing for you to remember it by. The first smells have welcome hints of vanilla, fruitiness and hops. The taste is full of a complex mix of fruit, malts, creaminess all topped off with a respectable hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is silky smooth but lacking a little in carbonation.
Overall Steam is a real treat. Pick it up and enjoy.
