3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy amber from the 12 ounce bottle, nice fluffy white head with good lacing. Aroma is modest nothing bad.
Taste is bitter citrus hop with a good amount of sweet malts. Not perfectly balanced but very much a good APA.
Overall not a new favorite APA but well done Anchor Brewing. Would never turn one down, probably buy again. Cost: $1.49 US for the 12 oz. single.

Ez a sör nekem nagyon tetszett. Friss, illatos, nem bántóan keserű (sőt, talán éppen hogy alig keserű). Véletlen választás volt, de tudatosan ajánlom kóstolásra minden komló kedvelőnek.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Free Press, Cambridge. Dark golden with plentiful carbonation. Grain, apple, cereal, spruce nose. Hint of plastic. (Side note: I get this a lot from Anchor). Taste threatens bitterness, but delivers a syrupy sweetness on top of the hop bitterness. Yumsers. Long drier finish. Aftertaste tends more toward bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a large frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is hazy yellow amber, sparkles are visible.
Aroma contains light malts (hay, bread, caramel), moderate hops (perfume, pine, orange, lime), light yeasts (horse blanket, dough) and banana, vanilla, pear, spices, raisin and grape.
Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet, followed by light acidic, sweet and light bitter and finishing in light bitter.
Body is light to medium with watery texture and soft carbonation.
Ok, lacking complexity and a bit too thin. Still, not bad.
