look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Deep and slightly muddy orange/red body, slightly cloudy, but looking fairly alright if a bit murky on the body color. Forms an off tan almost orange/yellow tinge head, at a simple three fingers with a flat top styro puck. Minimal retention, a bit creamy, but otherwise fine.

Nice mild bread notes on the aroma, with some good toasty to match. Faint hint of sticky lager like pasty yeast quality, with a clean sensation. Mild hints of citrus fruit but very small but noticeable. Pretty basic but solid.

Palate washes a little wet, but manages some of the basics. Real interesting notes of fruit on this, almost comes like an ale yeast esters flavor but has to be from some sort of fruit forward American hop variety. Slightly juicy but washes a bit to wet off the palate with some fruit orange, mild spice, and lemon tropics in the mid palate. Malt angle manages a bit of sweetness but fairly subdued, but aftertaste brings some toast. Some warmth seems to bring out some interesting banana as well. Crispness seems a bit downsided, with carbonation being fairly middle of the road but gives some good sticky lager yeast on the finish as well.

It's an interesting take on a steam brew, but is missing I think some of the toasty notes and classic bready character I like from the style. It's still a very solid enjoyable brew though. Hope someday they can NSFW.

On draft at the brewery, pours a clear light amber with a good head and excellent retention, lots of lacing on the glass.

The nose is bread, malt, flowers, and biscuits. A little straw and grain. The flavor is moderately sweet, cracker, bread dough, lots of yeast mixed with floral hops. The finish is clean, dry. This is good, but nothing amazing. Standard, unoffensive, but forgettable.

On draft at the Brixton. The appearance is a very cloudy amber color, with light foam. Smelling, I find little to no aroma. The flavor is surprisingly wheat-like, something like a wheat/lager hybrid. It's definitely an easy drinker but something about the flavor did not make me want more than one. I haven't had a anchor steam in a while so I can't compare.
