UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 This is a really good brew that I think is a little underrated. Great unique taste and ABV content makes for a good session beer. One of my favs from anchor

Pours copper with a large fluffy head. A fruity, yeasty aroma. Flavor is sweet and floral; honey, with a nice pine finish. A dry aftertaste lingers a bit. Medium bitter. A little watery with good carbonation. A nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2004 Crystal clear amber with a large diminishing off white head. Floral aroma with notes of honey, light citrus, white bread, and a hint of pine. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. A pleasantly sweet flavor of honey and bread with light pine, red apple, and citrus notes. Refreshing, a good session beer.

Very nice beer. Strong caramel/smoky flavors that coat and linger on the palate. Easy to drink and enjoy!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of those beers that I love to have on hand all the time. Nice bottle, nice label, nice beer. Has a lightly hazy copper colored body and a thick foamy cream colored head. Aroma is clean and lightly hopped with just a hint of malt. Nicely carbonated, no trace of alcohol in the palate. A little bitter, maybe spicy, has some malt and hops flavoring but not too much. This is not a terribly complex beer but it is miles ahead of average.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Midlands. Strangely flat, with no head. Copper hued, with a sweet malty aroma. Soft toffee and orange notes, but predominantly quite a dry beer. Crisp and peppery, with a long finish. Nice enough, but a little bland, beyond the dryness.

dark copper colored beer, is this a lager with high fermentation?
It's nice in taste, easy going, could replace any amber beer in Europe. Nice malts at first and long aftertaste of hopps and yeast. When you serve the beer a little warmer than lager it's even better.
