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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
