4.29/5 rDev +11.1%
A: This was the most disappointing aspect of this beer. Great copper/rust color but little to no head.
S: Very malty with some slight caramel in there as well.
T: Amazing taste. A great balance of combining both salty and sweet flavors. Let the beer sit and warm just a bit and these flavors increase quite a bit,
M: Sticky and medium bodied.
O: Highly recommended. Definitely a great find if you can catch it on tap.

I don't care for Anchor's bottle dating system. I guess its better than nothing, but is so cryptic it's useless when I'm in a store. I probably would have passed on this sample since it is 5 months old...
Pours a clear copper color, with a good sized off-white head. Both retention and lacing are good.
Aromas remind me somewhat of a pilsner, with sweet pale malts and earthy hops.
Taste is clean and lager-like; the caramel maltiness is balanced by woody/earthy moderate hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is crisp and highly carbonated with a lager cleanness, finishing with a moderate wood and earthy bitter note.
Overall a good thirst-quencher; tastes much like a pilsner and seems well-made.
