4/5 rDev +3.6%
Appearance- Clear caramel with a thick, off white head. Thick lacing left behind on the glass. 4/5
Smell- Bready with a bit of a crisp, spicy hop "bite" to it. 4/5
Taste- Spicy up front then evens out with a bready malt flavor. It ends on the spicy side again. 4/5
Mouthfeel- Nice even mouthfeel. A little on the thinner side of medium. 4/5
Overall- Even though I have had many, many beers this is the first time I have had this one. Impressions are that this is an easy drinking beer if you want to have something in between boring and crazy. This would seem to me as a great beer to pair with any type of dinner. 4/5

I hadn't had this beer in over ten years. Recently I was watching Michael Jackson's show "The Beer Hunter" and in an episode he goes to Anchor's brewery and meets the former owner. After hearing him speak about the beer I had to give it another try.
It's better than I remember. There's a nice malt taste and light hop flavor, though not overly bitter.
This beer is often priced in the $13.50 range for a six pack in the NY area but if you do some looking you can find it for $11.99 some places. Kind of a lot but it's a more special beer than I remember.
