2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear light orange pour with a large white head. Nose is kind of off-putting - kind of cardboard like. Thinner palate. Taste is grassy hops, and other than that is fairly mild. Wasn’t really digging this one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It poured a golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was grainy pale with some grassy hops. The flavor was pale and light hoppy notes. Not what was expected as a bitter.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Strangely and disappointingly shallow beer. It had a magnificent frothy white head that lingers. It has an amber/peach hue. But then you smell thin beer alcohol... the flavor is watery with slight barley. 3-j 2.5-B

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden amber color-good carbonation level-has a decent head. Somewhat hoppy aroma.Bitterness is right upfront with minimal malt. A bit unbalanced in my opinion. Average mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light aromas of grass and grains. Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Flavors of grass, grains, some caramel and fruit. Fuller body than I was expecting but the finish leaves an unpleasant taste in my mouth. Overall......eh, I gues I’m glad I tried it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A small beer! cool. 3.3% abv! I love it. Simple hazy happy gold compliments Belle and Sebastian well. fizzy, ok head retention. Aroma of moderate caramel, and a flat grass hops smell. Flavor is dry grain lightly bitter grassy leaf hops. It’s good, light on alcohol, yet almost medium-bodied and fairly flavorful with hops/grain and a caramelly aroma. As it warms, the flavor (and the hops in particular) become a more astringent and less enjoyable.

This beer is exactly what I thought of and heard about "Small beer" a low alcohol and lightly bodied beer brewed with the sparged mash of Anchor Foghorn. It was more bitter than I expected but not overly so. I thought that it is a good example of the "small beer" style.

larger bottle than i was expecting to find a small beer in. the elusive small beer! it pours a clear orange with a small white head. aroma is grainy with light fruity esters and kind of stinks sometimes;. flavor is bitter and watery with plenty of unsweet graininess. light, refreshing palate. small beer turned out to be an awesome sessionable experience but not something i would probably seek out agian. now where the heck is that anchor bock???
