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.

Pours an apple juice color with an amber and copper hue, some carbonation, and an OK off white head.

Has a toasted caramel smell with a herbal spruce and citrus hops aroma.

Kind of a slight nutty toasted malt taste with a slight herbal orange and grapefruit hops flavor.

Medium bodied, sweet texture, soft carbonation, with the finish.

A very drinkable style.
