Notes / Commercial Description:
Anchor Steam® Beer owes its deep amber color, thick, creamy head, and rich, distinctive flavor to a historic brewing process like none other.

It is a process that combines deep respect for craft brewing tradition with many decades of evolution to arrive at a unique approach: a blend of pale and caramel malts, fermentation with lager yeast at warmer ale temperatures in shallow open-air fermenters, and gentle carbonation in our cellars through an all-natural process called kräusening.

Clear copper in color. Forms a small off-white head that reduces to a ring around the edge. No lacing. Smell is mostly malty with a bit of earth and just a hint of smoke. Flavor is also quite malty with malty fruity flavors and a mild earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation.
A good beer that is probably the flagship beer for the style. Easily drinkable.
