355 ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a huge, creamy light tan head. Extra credits for the foam! Sweet, malty aroma with caramel, toffee, toasted bread and citrus hops. Light sweet taste. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Finishes bitter with citrus hops, nuts and toasted bread. A typical example of Anchor´s beers: Not extreme, just balanced and well made.

Bottle. I got this a while back and it has been sitting in the fridge waiting its time in line. Pours a lovely medium brown with reddish highlights and a nice fizzy tan head. Aromas are earthy, roasty, leafy, and toffee-like. Flavor is a bit thin, but a nice mix of dark caramel, earthy roasted malts and a slightly leafy bitterness. Very solid for a nice brown.

Ottima birra decisamente particolare! Brown, duona schiuma nocciola abbastanza persistente, sentori leggermente caramellati e limonati, citrosi. Si ritrovano anche nel aroma. Questa combinazione č decisamente particolare, molto picevole e risulta essere anche una birra fresca, a mio avviso parecchio estiva! Da provare indubbiamente!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker brown with a large light khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is sort of piny and doughy with some sweet brown sugar notes coming through. I didn’t expect this beer to be as hoppy as it is, but damn, it’s quite bitter. I like it... for 6%, it drinks very light on the palate. If I had to guess blindly, I would have put it at closer to 4.5%.

The beer in the glass is dark brown with fine cream crown. It smells malty-roasty, slightly bitter and chocolaty. Starts very hoppy-bitter with some chocolate and roasted malts. The middle part is also hoppy-bitter, slightly caramel-chocolatey with some coffee. Goes into a coffee-roasted finish with a lot of chocolate!
