Pours a clear pale gold producing almost 3 fingers of white, foamy, somewhat lasting head that leaves a streaky, webby wash of lace. Aroma is wheat, butter, lemon & orange. Taste is thin lemon, orange, mildly wheat bready, a hint of floral/herbal hops with a tiny bit of pepper & bitterness in the finish. Aftertaste is citric & slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is light bodied with with moderate carbonation, crisp but not clean leaving a phenolic presence on the tongue.

Anchor Brewing is well known for outstanding beers and the Summer Beer doesn't disappoint. from its sem-cloudy golden appearance to its awesome clean aroma, it is another winner for them.
The taste is sooth with an overwhelming drinkability. lightly carbonated and pours with a small head. this is a must try if Anchor products are available in your neighborhood.
