3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber color. 3,2% on the label. Citrus and blackcurrant aroma and flavor. Just a bit of hopbitterness and some tartness. Fairly thin but loads of flavor, especially for a low ABV beer. Heartily recommended as a low alcohol beer!

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 This beer was my first small beer. It was my first "drain-pour" in quite sometime.
Horrible, thin and bitter from start to finish. Maybe my bottle was off. I don’t even want to give it another chance. Bought it at Sam’s in Chicago, IL. Horrible!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange/gold pour, nice white head. Barely any aroma. A watery malt and caramel smell barely escapes the glass. Flavor is watery as hell. I am guessing this would only be good on a hot as hell day when you just finished mowing the lawn. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is pretty decent. Soft and fruity with alot of orange marmalade character. EKG and Fuggles gives a fairly prominent hoppy aroma. Malts smell lightly crackery. The flavour comes across a bit muddled however. Fairly watery palate. There are a lot of good components in this beer, but it just never really comes together all that well. It’s pretty authentic, not terrible but not great either.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s in Fort Collins. Pours a clear toasty orange appearance with a creamy, tan head. Grainy, rich straw, a bit herbal, green hoppy, cracker aroma. Bitter herbal, chewy saltine cracker, toasty malty, hay flavor. Probably my least favorite beer from Anchor.
