3.86/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: A hazy golden orange color with two finger off white head. Looks phenomenal in the glass
Smell: Citrus, grassy, with a balance of bready and caramel malts
Taste: Citrusy (grapefruit, lemon zest, oranges) and grassy balanced extremely well with sweet, toasted malts. Though balanced, the flavors are quite subdued than what I'm used to
Mouthfeel: Light body; Goes down smooth and crisp with a nice dry finish
Overall: Definitely on the English side of things. This one reminds me of the SouthHampton IPA I had a while ago. Although not great in todays craft world, I reckon this was mind blowing back in 1975. Something I will consider grabbing again if Im in the mood for a english style pale ale/IPA. In fact, having had their porter as well, I think Anchor does English style beers justice. The price is right, too.
