A new seasonal from the newly expanded Victory operation.

Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. A little bit of lacing.

Smell is modestly grainy and lightly sweet with just a hint of hops.

Taste is good, nicely malty with some light hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and a bit dry. This is a nice session beer.

I have not had an Anchor Steam in quite a while. This is a pleasant reminder of the early days of my craft beer experience, along with Sam Adams lager and Pete's Wicked Ale.

On tap at Victory on 8/12/08.

A - Highly carbonated light copper body with one-finger bubbly off-white head that quickly diminished and left spotty lacing.

S - This brew primarily has a fruity nose with hints of apple and grape, along with a bit of spice, mild hops and sweet caramel malt. Aroma is a little muted due to the cold serving temperaure.

T - Fruity, sweet, spicy, hoppy. Lots going on with the flavor profile and all working quite well together. The caramel malt pulls everything together with an ever-present sweet base. Hops emerge in the finish with a grassy and spicy character.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation and a slightly syrupy texture. Dry finish with a crisp, fruity sweetness and a bit of hop bitterness.

D - I was surprised to see a Steam Beer on the menu at Victory. Their take on the California Common is solid with lots of flavors gelling together and producing a very tasty brew that is highly drinkable.
