Anchor Steam is very flavorful and effervescent light bodied beer. You get a lot of bang for your buck.
I am suprised by the pleasant nose. It's yeasty and spicy, almost belgian, with floral hoppiness.
It's a completely different beer than what the smell suggests. The malt is definitely the most salient flavor - semi-sweet and very bready, almost musty. The hops are also pretty prominent and intertwoven with the other flavors. They're present from start to end. Finishes dry with a grainy, slightly bitter aftertaste.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased at the LCBO as a single. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens ok. Pours a good 1" head that stays for a bit
S- Malt and yeast. Pretty smooth on the nose. Hint of grapefruit
T- Malty good. Not too roasted at all but lots of it. Touch of hops that are overpowered by the aforementioned malt!
M- Dry and crisp
- Ok. Nothing special and will not buy again. Don't get me wrong it's not bad, just nothing special that's all
This ok beer went well with... Hamburgers. I don't use a lot of toppings so for me it's meat and bun off the BBQ
Serving type: bottle
