My fav for now, took a little getting used to at first but now I love it, it tastes a lot better when poured in a glass than direct from the bottle where it seems a bit more bitter.

Still love that perfect bittersweet balance, but is it getting a bit sweeter? Nice citrus grove aroma and thick heavenly head; clean taste, but with a nicely textured bite on the back of the tongue. Soft, smooth, and comfy; no longer an exciting beer, but highly dependable and very good indeed.

Pours a crystal clear amber colour, nice big off white head. Armoa is a soft and slightly floral. The first sip was hoppier than i had expected, its still quite clean, just fairly bitter. There are some nice malty flavours, but overall it seems a bit thin on the palate. Nonetheless, this is a great refreshing beer and was much enjoyed.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 Pours an amber brown, clear in color, with a nice amount of froathy white head. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy but nothing too special. Flavor is clean and crisp with a bitter hop finish. Almost piney in flavor. Overall, I finid this beer to be very refreshing and nice for a summer drink.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 This beer is now a staple at many places that used to be Macro Only territory. I find it amazing and promising because this beer still seems too hoppy for mass consumption with a big and bold flavor, but it sells and that is promising. I’ll never turn down an Anchor.

bottle-pours with a medium head that dissipates quickly while coating the side of the glass. Nice malty aroma with a wonderful copper color. Bitter taste that finishes a bit rough.

Bottled. Copper colour, mediumsized longlasting creamy head. Fruit and malt in aroma with flowery and hoppy notes. Sweet citric malty flavour with hoppy finish. Fruit and hops in aftertaste. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well, for one, this in my eyes is as good as a beer can look: Deep amber with zero cloudiness, and a nice creamy head. Aroma wasn’t too impressive. Mostly musky with maybe a slight touch of apple, though certainly not offensive. A bit wattery in the mouth, although the beer really shines through in a pleasant, very slightly malty flavor that is nice and easily drinkable (though not "smooth" like a stout). Maybe its influenced by the name but I feel like I can taste steamyness (even though its not actually made with any sort of steam). It just gives off that kind of feeling. Definitely try out this beer. Drink this sucker cold though because its flavors begin to get a little out of wack as it warms.

Good ol’ Anchor Steam. I remember drinking you a long time ago before I was beer-aware. It’s still pretty good, if a bit boring.
