UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 I gave this a try and was surprised..I agree with the caramel aftertaste which I liked. I actually liked the color if it sttin in my glass more than usual.. Kinda copper but not quite. Nutty like me so maybe that was why I liked it..Not much smell but smooth overall.

Agree with the previous rater about the smooth caramel aftertaste and certainly easily drinkable. Dull looking honey/copper coloured body with a fairly lasting off-white head. Caramel in the aroma and if you look for it, some pears. Hasn’t got heaps of body but has some character and this will be my benchmark for this style of beer. Aroma follows through to the taste along with some pleasant bitterness. A light, drinkable blend of caramel and pears with a hint of nuts thrown in.

Very drinkable. Weak aroma. Beer tasted very smooth with a carmel aftertase. Amber in the glass, smooth tasting with slightly efervesent carbonation astrigent on the palet.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Zesty, effervescent first rate lager. Bready and fruit notes. I should drink this more often.

This beer had a nice head. It tasted a little like coffee with no aftertaste. It was brown in color.

Had during a beer tasting party. Poured amber and tastes malty. Bitter finish yet remarkably balanced.

Not bad, but that also means, not great either. There is a bit of fruityness to the flavour, as well as a good deal of maltyness. Over all, this beer is middle of the road.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange copper with creamy white head. The aroma is of carmel malts and a bit of a fruityness. Flavor is a decent smack of malts. Carmel malts, tangy gritty malt. A somewhat bitter finish, appears to be from Cascade hops. Nice decent beer. Clean and crisp on the palate.

on draught. Anchor Steam pours a light amber with a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet of pears with some grains. The flavor is of bland hops, a little like paper, with a more pleasant sweetness and wood in the finish. Refreshing at least.
