Smell: rich malt character comes through
Appearance: deep amber color, nice head, good carbonation
Taste: beautiful caramel malt character balanced by nice light hop bitterness cutting through.
Overall: Perfection! Perfect balance of sweet malt with nice hop bitterness undertones. Anchor does an amazing job of delivering balanced beers. This is a must try.

Like said before, I too tried this before (a few years ago) and was not impressed. I guess with ago I now know better. :) I enjoyed a few tonight in a Sam Adams glass and was very impressed. at $10 a 6 pack it better be good and I will be adding this as a regular in my rotation!!
