Aroma is sweet, syrupy and hoppy. Initial sweetness quickly fades as the hops kick in. Little bit metallic and bitter in the finish.

Pours reddish-amber with an inch of orangey head. Smells of pine, grapefruit, and malt. Whoa. This is interesting: fruity, light maple, and finises with toasted malts.

Sweet caramel in smell. Hint of maple syrup, but maybe I made that up. Bitter aftertaste with sweet like begining. Bitterness stays for longer and you can feel how it stays. Foams stays for a decent time.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. BB 8/2015. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear reddish coppery colour with a foamy off-white head.
Caramel sweetness, malty dryness, maple syrup as well as typical Anchor brew notes in the aroma. The flavour is hoppy bitterness, sweet caramel malt, syrupy sweetness and dryness. The combination of hoppy bitterness and syrupy sweetness is kind of bothering. Not my cup of tea.
