3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A caramel, molasses nose. Pours a translucent amberish brown with a mostly lasting tan head and some lacing. The taste is much like the nose - caramel and a roasty quality up front with hints of nuttiness and biscuit. The finish is slightly bitter with notes of molasses. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, while molasses is not one of my favorite flavors in beer, the molasses taste here was subdued and added to the enjoyment of this beer.

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.

Very nice Brown head ove a perfectly clear Deep dark red-Brown beer. Small aroma from roasted malts and a tuch of citrus from the hops. Usually the Citra hops gets wery artificial but here in small amounts it ok. Sweet malty but not so much from cara malt. Big body and low bitterness.
