A good classic Bay Area original... Delicious! This is a widely available ale that is hugely consistent and wonderfully reliable.

355ml bottle. Pale gold to deep gold colour with suspended sediment. A towering, dense, creamy head with a buttery tinge. Wonderful head retention and some lovely lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, biscuit, peach, honey and some caramel. Light to medium bitterness and light sweetness. Light to medium body, smooth texture; a wonderful mouthfeel. The finish is semi-dry but still managers to linger with a beautiful balance between the sweetness and the bitterness. A cracker of a beer.

HammerTroll (752) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2015
Hazy yellow color, medium sized white head. Hops are noticeable, but dominant scent is armpit. Notes of malt and citrus. Unpleasant and disappointing. Taste is a little bit better, but still boring. More sweet than bitter. Expected more.

zimbo (743) - SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Last had this about 20 years ago and thankfully pretty much as I remembered it. Deep golden hue. Good beading. Rocky head. Mute nose. Deep husky raw hop flavour. Great mouthfeel and excellent. Potent too. One of the very most iconic American beers ever made and Anchor continues to honour and brew with this beer as it always was and with love and respect.

veceo (789) - CROATIA - MAY 30, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color, average sized white head. Aroma of biscuit, some fruitiness, malt, caramel and sweat. Taste is similar, with citrus fruits and malts dominating. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not impressed.

Cristobal37 (339) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Light pleasant bitter dry hops rest on your tongue. Crisp with a fair amount of bite. Light body with oily hop finish. This aint a slouchy pale ale. A great lounge and relax kinda beer.

ElManana (988) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle bought at Geers. Citrus-sour, almost lemonade-like, yeasty, different to say the least.

Rolfarild (80) - NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
Amber with a white lasting head and lacing all the way down. Aroma of citrus, honney and forrest. Chrispy and dry with a taste of malt, grain and fruit. Faint bitter aftertaste.

A good pale ale. Sufficient hops, fruity notes, light palate, pretty smooth with a modest finish. Classic label.
