3.56/5 rDev -7.8%
A - Nice head of foam lasts 5 minutes, leaves lacing on the glass.
S - Straight hops smell, barley, little bit of roasted smell.
T - Comparable to Lionshead, but much more full. Tastes like pancakes. Bitter aftertaste with taste of alcohol.
F - Feel is great, very little carbonation.
O - Pretty good. Similar to a light lager, ale. Nothing too notable about this beer.

Anchor Steam Beer, while choosing this beer a got a little history on the beer.
This beer poured orange crisp and a bit cloudy.
Lots of bubbles...a bit right up front..malt and citrus fight in this beer.
a good beer.
I would like to enjoy this at the brewery.

Serving Type - The classic 12 ounce brown bottle in a shaker pint glass (the bottle looks so cool).
Appearance - A perfect copper color. I wish the beer left a little more lace around the inside of the glass however.
Smell - Good.
Taste - Flavorful. The beer has a slight botanical flavor. The balance between malt and hops is ideal. Very drinkable!
Mouth - Tart yet clean.
Overall - This is the first micro brew I remember being aware of (as a young boy, I watched my father drink one at Fisherman's Wharf). Yes, I'm a little biased. I love this beer.

A little cloudy in color, almost like a hefeweizen, but it settles a few moments after the pour. It has a creamy mouthfeel and is overall refreshing. The head is thick at first but dissipates quickly leaving traces of golden white. Malty with hints of slight hops, an overall enjoyable beer for any occasion.
Has a nice, thick chew but it is very palatable and swallows like a light beer. I was surprised by the refreshing feeling.
