Pours a clear golden effervescent body with a frothy white head resting nicely on top. Greet the nose with the slightly sweet note of cereal grain and biscuit. Earthy and herbal hop notes make themselves present as well.
A nicely balanced, clean and crisp lager on the palate with a bready malt flavor and a floral hop note coming along as well. A light touch of bitterness before it goes down oh so smooth. Medium-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent go-to beer that shows that yellow and fizzy pale lagers CAN be good!

Poured one and a half bottles into a 1/2 liter stein with a clear golden color with a frothy one finger white top.Aromas of toasted grain and minerla mainly,a tinge of caramel sweetness.A nice flavor profile that mildly sweet,lightly toasted grain along with some honey and sweetish pizza dough.A pretty damn solid American lager,will be good to throw back while smoking some sausage and shoulders this spring.

3.5/5 rDev -4.6%
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass.
Appearance: It has a light golden body with some visible carbonation and a small white head that just hangs on to a thin layer of foam. Lacing is minimal.
Smell: There are some light biscuity maltiness and some mild grassy hop notes.
Taste / Palate: I am picking up the same biscuity and white bready maltiness. It’s dry overall and finishes with some mild grassy/herbal/botanical hop bitterness. The palate is light with a well carbonated feel.

As a fan of Anchor Porter and lagers in general, when I saw this recently I had to pick up a six pack. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with this one. It smells and tastes like an IPA, not a lager. The grassy hops pervade the nose and leave a lingering potent bitterness that only IPA lovers would enjoy. Yes, there is substantial maltiness up front, but it is quickly overcome by the strong hops. If the hops were cut to about a quarter of the current level this would be an outstanding lager.
