I genuinely love this beer. Super session craft brew that's smooth and super tasty. But to be honest I'm rating it so high because of the pioneer factor. I'm 55 yrs old and to anyone else who endured the fizzy 70's and 80's, especially in a rural area like where I grew up - you know what I mean. Fritz and Homebrew Charlie P saved the day and instigated the craft beer gold rush. Nowadays there's literally thousands of excellent brews out there. Thank you so much Anchor Brewing

Enjoyed straight from the bottle at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan.
Anchor Steam is a beer that I've wanted to try for awhile now, but just now decided to finally order one and get my first taste. I had never had a beer of this style before, so I was actually surprised. With the ABV and the name "Steam" beer I was expecting a light beer that was light on flavor and pretty much a slightly better version of an adjunct lager... it's better than that. The smell is of malts with a fair amount of hops. The taste has mild hops on the front, with a malty and bitter finish. I was not expecting this beer to taste the way that it did, but I enjoyed it. I had Black Crown by Budweiser just last week, and honestly, this tastes like a craft version of that beer. It has a similar malt aftertaste with a trace of wood, but with a bit less sweetness and more bitterness. Clearly, this beer is MUCH better than Black Crown will ever be, but that's a beer a lot of people are familiar with that I would compare this one to.
Would not exactly be my beer of choice (There's nothing offensive about it at all and it's a solid, craft beer), but it's a very respectable beer with a lot of history behind it.
