Bottle. 22oz. It pours a clear, dark reddish amber body under a dense, small, light beige head. The aroma is roasted and bready, with a pleasant citrus addition. Medium to full body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. The flavor has citrusy hops up front, with caramel, roasted malts and bread in the back. A pleasant brown ale indeed. 120218

Hhhhmmm, might this be a "brown IPA"??? It’s sort of a mess, but it’s interesting. Pours reddish brown, clear with a soft light beige head and some lacing. Nose is citrusy hops and bready, woody malts. Odd mix of flavors. Some Irish breakfast tea, which also comes though in the somewhat pungent flavor. Bitterness. Soft palate. Interesting for being such an odd beer, but I’m note sure I want much more.

I likes! After trying several beers that barely made muster, it was a relief to find a beer that maintained it’s awesomeness from first pour to final swallow! My hat is off to Anchor Brewing Company!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Brilliantly clear medium brown hue with deep red colors. Aroma has assertive but pleasant pear-like fruity esters -- this has got to be an English yeast -- backed up by caramel malts and some light chocolate. Taste is same, with malt and yeast flavors muddled together a bit, and moderate hop bitterness leading to a crisp finish. Can’t say I would have guessed Citra hops. Pleasant brown ale that is different due to distinct English yeast character.

Pours a deep reddish brown color with a big fluffy tan head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is woody and roasty with some light notes of nuttiness. Grapefruit becomes more forward as the glass progresses.
The flavor is woody with a lot of cocoa notes and some grape like fruitiness. The beer is nicely bitter with a dry finish.
Pretty enjoyable stuff.

355ml brown bottle. Deep brown colour with garnet highlights. Good sized fluffy beige cap. Good lacing. Nose has choclate malts, toasted malts, spicy and resiny, piney hops. In the mouth has chocolatey malt and caramel for sweetness and a decent hop dosing offering some pine taste. Some nuttiness and chocolate malts, light roast in the finish with some decent bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. Another solid Anchor brew.
