My new favorite lager. Anchor steam poured into the pint glass a great amber color, with some nice head and decent lacing. Very light scent, a nice mix of malts and hops, but not much there. Very good flavor, each taste seemed to bring out a hidden quality of the beer, with different swirls of hops or malts. Easily one of the smoothest beers I've ever had. (Have had it from the bottle, too, and not quite as smooth.) An excellent beer.
