Pours translucent honey gold. The huge two inch eggshell head remains as a thick cap on top and leaves strands of lace.

The smell is of buttered biscuit and dust.

The taste is of grains, bread and faint caramel with a hint of hop bitterness.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rise up throughout the drink down.

Grain and bread flavor dominates. A solid, classic brew.

Copper color with a head that died to a thin ring.. spotty lace.. the smell is fruit, pear, clean malt sweetness.. tatse is the same fruit mostly a pear, tartness, yeast, very slight caramel.. thin lager body.. its decent for what it is.. would probably rate it lower if not rating for style.. just not a huge fan of the past 3 anchor beers i tryed.
