12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours a clear amber with an average white head that soon reduces to a lasting ring and leaves a modicum of lacing.
The light, earthy aroma is pleasing, but it is too mild to be very enticing.
The flavor (4.2) starts with a good hit of earthy/spicy hops, with the malt component becoming more apparent mid-taste. The hops are present all the way through, making this steam beer seeming to build in intensity through the finish. Great hops/malt balance leaves both bitter/sweet and other flavor components in exemplary balance. Excellent roster of malts.
Anchor Steam has a medium body; excellent carbonation, and a refreshing crispness.
O: excellent choice as a session beer or replacement for one of any light or macro-adjunct beer. Slightly milder than an average APA, but with as much flavor. Should work well with many lighter-flavored foods.
