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.

Bottle. Syrupy barley malt aroma. Medium amber with small head. Slightly sweet barley malt with moderate hops finish. Very watery. I now understand what Shakepeare’s Henry VI was talking about.

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!

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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark straw/copper colored, with aroma of malt, some hopcit and fruit. I didn;t detect any "off" aromas here. The taste was uninspiring, with some caramel malt, hops, and slight fruit presence. Did Fritz want to make a "small beer", or did Maytag have a bad fiscal quarter?
