COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and can: Pasteurised.
Ingredients: Water, malted barley, maize, hops and yeast.
Anchor Smooth pilsener beer has been enjoyed for its crisp, smooth and refreshing taste since 1933. Today Anchor is still brewed in the pilsen tradition but with special aromatic European hops to give you an even richer, smoother taste.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Typical world adjunct beer. Needs to be cold and unfortunately my reefer doesn’t work so well. Upon opening the aroma is corn, a little malt and beer. Flavor’s like nose. Body - forget about it. Finish is like body.

armando629 (2381) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2014
Random store, Kuala Lumpur. The label said it has an abv 4,2%
Poured clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, maize, yeast, moderated grassy hops. Easy body, average flavor of corn and yeast, minimal hops in the finish. Not pilsner rather a boring pale lager.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013

Pijiuke (60) - - DEC 1, 2013
Very light gold color with heat that flattens almost immediately, the liquid is lively and light. Taste a bit alcohol. Not something worth mentioning, but at least it’s refreshing.

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2013
633ml bottle in Chinatown, Singapore:
Lager malts and some light grassy hops to go with them. There is some corn and a few adjuncts but this is basically a standard, unexciting pale lager.
Clear straw to amber colour with a thumb sized, bubbly white head that holds relatively well before slowly reducing to a thick looking, patchy lacing on top.
Nothing to get excited about sadly. There is some light malts, some faint hops and a grass like taste along with some corn, adjuncts and water plus some bitterness. Light and faint to taste but at least it is drinkable.
Light, smooth and crisp whilst being very typical of an Asian style pale lager. Not a bad thirst quencher.

An average, Asian style pale lager that works well in the humid, tropical climate and is easy enough to drink with being anything special but as I found out, I wouldn’t say no to a second.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours very light yellow. White fizzy head. Bitter pilsnet aroma. Flavor strarts good but turns sour and alchy quickly.

DerLars (7) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2013 does not count
Appearance: Golden in color, head vanishes quickly. Taste: Low to medium bitterness. Palate: Nice mouthfeel, medium body. Overall: A decent but not very exciting beer. From my perspective a bit low on bitterness and a bit too much body for a pilsner.

rarbring (1087) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2013
Appearance: A clear straw colored beer. A white head with small lacing and small curtains.
Overall: A run-of-the-mill adjunct lager, corn flakes, boiled vegetables and no dryness.
Note: Bottle 650 ml in chinatown, Shanghai . Reviewed 2013-01-14.
