A super, historical salute! A great pale lager, hopped just right, and a tribute to Anchor's diversification! Love the cans !!! (though I'd suggest doing away with the red background, making it gold, and keeping the crest red.)

3.5/5 rDev -4.6%
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a fairly thick for the style one finger white head. Good head retention although lacing is a bit lacking.
Aroma is very bready with some light floral and grassy notes from the hops. Anchor uses cluster hops in this and it does have that distinct American lager aroma.
Bready grain in the flavor along with a very prominent hop note of grass/hay like what was present in the aroma. Bitterness is moderate but does remain restrained. Extremely clean finish with incredible drink ability.
This might be one of the best pre-prohibition lagers I have had. It is a very clean beer with just enough bitterness to balance things out. It's crazy to think this is what American lagers used to taste like
