3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I must admit I was a little buzzed when i tasted this beer, so I had to relie on my short notes. APP: hazy, golden, large foam. ARO: fresh, hops. FLA: weak, hops, malt, bitter. MOU: fresh. OVE: I sure wish i could get drunk with a bow of these! (this properly means, that it is not that strong, but a beer you enjoy several of in a row) ... average beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is a dark copper with a thick pillowy, creamy head. The aroma hoppy, full of florals with a hint of malty sweetness. The taste is malty with complex variety of floral and citrusy hops. A very nice balance. Oak notes are present on the edges of the finish. I’m becoming very fond of the Steam Beer style. This Trailblazer is worth a try!

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.
