Pours out a nice amber with a good head. Can't really put a finger on the aroma but it is good. The flavor is rich and it finishes strongly. Anchor makes good beers and this is one of them.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 This just didn’t live up to what i expected it to be. maybe the bottle was kinda skunky but the appearance was just pitiful for some reason. other than that, it was kinda tasty but it was definetely lacking some sort of backbone of flavor

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Hazy golden, not much head. Aroma is citrus and elder, a little sour.Flavor is both malty and hoppy, and has a bitter finish

Pours transparent orange with large white head and considerable lacing. Aroma is definitely grassy citrusy hops. Flavor is Deliciously balanced with some malts and a relatively long bitter finish. A very tasty APA, possibly one of my overall favorites, I think.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Hazy copper color with hoppy aroma. Nice fruity hoppy taste that has a good blend of sweet malts mixed in.Finishes sweet and dry. A good APA

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2003
Pourred a hazy light brown brew witn a nice foamy head with good retention. Nice aroma a strong hoppy taste (could it barley?). Definitely one of the best american pale ale and looking forward to other anchor products.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 This beer can best be enjoyed fresh. Hoppy nose without any lacing. I used to love this, but not so much anymore. Still my preferred ale if I can find it draft.

I have to say, I bought this on a whim because I thought it had a cool looking bottle. I was very pleasantly surprised by the flavor and quality of this beer. I'm definitely looking forward to other Anchor beers.

One of my favorite session beers. Gotta love watching drunkin' frat boys squirm when they first experience the hoppy goodness

This is about as consistent as any beer gets, which is why I always seem to have some around. I can't really say anything that hasn't been said before, but I think of this before any other APA.
