3.19/5 rDev -13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a (tulip) pint glass.
Appearance: Clear, slightly rusty amber color. Average but lasting head with moderate lacing. Visibly carbonated with various sized bubbles circulating vigorously.
Smell: Toasted bread, stone fruit and mild resin, but also something more savory (celery or even sweat?).
Taste: Full, toasty malt with caramel sweetness with good hop bitterness throughout.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: Good, malt forward lager (and interesting departure from SA's mostly ale lineup). Unfortunately some unappealing notes emerge in the aroma (unsure if bought an unlucky 4-pack, but another reviewer noted "sulfur yeast").

12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear copper color with a fairly small cap of off-white head. Decent retention and just a little lace.
The mosaic hops really change up the aroma here - very tropical aroma infused with a style that usually leans earthy with toasty malt. Some toast peeks through under the hops with a little minerality and sulfur yeast.
Taste has a pleasant hop flavor that plays nicely with some caramel maltiness and toast. The fruitiness works well and gives the beer a complexity the style rarely achieves. This one also does not seem to be as dry as Anchor Steam. Im glad the hops throw down more in the aroma and flavor as opposed to an overly bitter finish. A tasty brew and shows some really nice innovation, another winner from the ICON series.
