3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little disappointed. Anchor brews very traditional beers, which although high in quality, seem to fall behind today’s unique elements of the craft brew industry. The aroma was faint malt, but not toasted. The color was a dark brown with a creamy head. The palate was heavier but not so in the stomach. More strong malt flavors that brought out a sourdough essence. No evidence of hops here. Again, OK but not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Flasche. Tolle rot-braune Farbe. Cremiger hellbrauner Schaum. Nussiges Malzaroma. Ich rieche auch den Hopfen und verbrannter Zucker. Der Geschmack ist kanntig. Malzige Süsse, dann Hopfen und Hopfenbittere. Dann Lakritz und verbranntes Karamell. Kräuterbitter fast etwas beißend im Finnish. Ist ein gutes Bier, aber mir persönlich zu unrund.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, nuts, bread, dried fruit and hops.
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, nuts and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and hops.
This beer is rather complex and balanced, but could have been more intense. The brown malts, dash of roasted malts and the citra hops make this beer rather unique.
