3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Need I say it’s brown? Probably not. But I just did. Big head, too. Lovely strong fruitcake and treacle aroma. Expected this to be thick and full bodied but actually it’s watery and with a short finish. A tad disappointed with this.

Poured from bottle. Has a nutty aroma. Pours a clear dark red. Has a light bitter taste with a hint of sweet at the finish. Medium body and creamy texture. A really nice brew, with more complexity than most.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A little roasted malt in the aroma. The taste is of dark fruits, a little sweet, soy and coffee. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. The beer did not appeal to me at all. You could drink it but not enjoy it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drink cool 10-12°C
Eye: Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a small white to beige head which dissipates slowly but steadily. Not much carbonation though. oily texture while pouring in the glass.
Nose: nuts, sweet and sour candy, raisins, red berries, yeasty notes. When the beer gets warmer there are, and don’t take this the wrong way - hints of gravy.
Mouth: fruit bread/cake with candied fruit, nuts as well, slightly yeasty.
Palate: strong coffee and chocolate malts but also hops. yeasty touch still there. nicely balanced and roasted nuts. slight Ovomaltine notes with milk as well.
Overall: My second Anchor beer tasting and no surprise for me. Not too strong, nicely balanced, just a very nice brown ale which I’ll definitely have again. I especially like the fact, that there’s something left after filling a 0.33l dimple glass :-). A really great beer.
