Very simplistic and highly overrated! Not much taste at all, and disappointing for an Anchor beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Severly overrated ... charcoal tasting and extremely difficult to vary your drinking intensity with. I honestly think it tastes like the residue that slides off the end of an anchor that was dropped in a pool of feces ... so maybe the name is fitting?!! Way below average, but not the bottom of the barrel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Had it while out for a recent business lunch. Nice amber color with a thin foamy head. Aroma is there but doesn’t invoke anything that’s in the glass. Refreshing on the palate and finishes very well with a slight hop kick.

Pours a translucent, hazy pear somehwat gelatinous appearing but without the texture. Clean aroma and taste of balanced hops and malts. Nice finish, somewhat biting, very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange amber color with a thin white head. Simple aroma and flavor of malt and hops with subtle fruit notes. Lasting bitter finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, oily texture. This is a simple, clean and decent beer, not bad but I look for more than that in a beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad. It pours a deep amber color with a tan head that fizzes up, then fades away. The aroma is a mildly floral with a touch of bitterness. The flavor is mainly a light malt, somewhat tart, and makes for a mildly creamy mouthfeel. This finishes with a bitter malt feeling. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The colour is clear amber with a touch of red. The foam is very high, but it is also quite soft and disappears after a short while.
The smell is fruity with a touch of black coffee and hints of yeast end smoked ham.
The carbon dioxide is medium strong with medium bubbles.
The taste is first on the lighter side with low bitterness. There is a nice body that is not too heavy. The malt is the dominating part, with hints of a burned taste. The aftertaste is filled with malt, white bread and some diacetyl.
This is not my first choice for a session beer, but it is probably a perfect companion to a real American hamburger.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Bottle) Nice orange amber color with an tanish head, has an breadlike yeasty aroma. The flavor is thin and doughy witha bit of hop accent and some toffee notes not bad but I was hoping for more
