12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a golden amber with a half-inch off-white head that dissipates to film fairly quickly. Carbonation is heavy. Lacing moderate. Looks lager-like.
Aroma: Standard lager aromas; some toast, some caramel. I doubt anyone drinks Anchor Steam so they can smell it. It does smell crisp and clean.
Taste: Follows the nose, but is much more flavorful than the nose alludes. Crisp, clean lager-like flavor, with bready maltiness upfront. It has a nice, firm malt backbone and a modest amount of hop bite. It's a nice reminder that lager-style beers can be full of flavor even though we tend to associate them with macro crud.
Mouthfeel: Just the right amount of body. Good stuff.
Overall: What is there to say about this that hasn't been said? It's a key building block of the American craft brewing scene, and is a terrific all-purpose lager.
Serving type: bottle
