Comes out looking amber and auburn, 1/4" off white head. The aroma was a delight, poppin' dem Nelson hops all up in your grill.

Taste was the hoppiest thing from Anchor I've ever had, including Old Foghorn! Very dry malt body here, dem honey pale malts. So cool, Anchor, one of the more old school traditional brewery, dropping new school down under New Zealand or whatnot hops into a new recipe. It works. It works quite well, this is my fave Anchor beer now. Wish I could see it more, but Nelsons seem to be in short supply.
