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

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.

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.

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.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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???

A thin copper pour with hints of grass and sweet malt.
Not too much going on in this one. It was ok.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A gold/amber color with a foamy, short-lived white head and lots of lacing and carbonation. The aroma has some malt and yeast and smells almost like an adjunct beer. The flavor is light, with some faint malt and a crisp aftertaste. It’s like a michelob or other mainstream beer made with better ingredients. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2012 Grassy hops on the nose with bready malts. Small beer pours golden in color with a thick white head. Grassy hops and an earthy bitterness upfront with hints of light caramel and bready malts. Great session beer!!
