Bright amber-brown color, with a frothy beige head, with a malty, earthy hops aroma follows through on a medium-bodied and roundness palate, with a smooth fruity malty character, flower hops note, leading towards a nice hop dryness finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Available as 500 mL brown bottle from Whole foods, Deerfield, IL. Clear orange amber hued beer with small white diminishing head with fair lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and hop flowers. Medium bodied that starts with a sharp hop bite and slightly sweet malt flavor and finishes dry with slight hop bitterness and nutty flavor. A very good drinkable beer. I had to have this beer after reading about Fritz Maytag and the history of Anchor brewing company in Ken Well’s Travels with Barley (excellent book - it should be required reading for all beer lovers).

Pours a nice golden color with a very nice head. Seemed like there was plenty of carbonation, but when I drank it, I couldn’t feel anything. Tasted almost exactly like flat sparkling cider. Had it been carbonated a little bit at least, it probably would have been a pretty good beer. Could be due to the long shipping distance though, as I live in NJ. The flavors were pleasant, although it smelled like a shitty macrobrew, it didn’t taste remotely like one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle.Served in a 16oz lager glass at 58°. Pours copper colored with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild caramel with earthy hops. A nice, full mouthfeel initially. The taste is light, caramelly malt, flourish yeastiness, but the main flavor is the somewhat earthy, moderately spicy hops, which provide a nice mild to moderate bitter finish. It is amazing to think at one time this was THE american beer. Thanks to Fritz Maytag for getting craft brewing going again in the US.

This is one of those kind of beers that u can buy a sixer of and give to your guests, a golden brown tea colour with some minimal head..has a pleasing yet not overpowering bitterness, nice. on the higher end in price but the subtle bitters will get your guests jive-N.
