Amber in color with a light beige head. Hops and floral aroma. Dry hop flavor. Crisp, clean and dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice looking beer, with a very orange tinted color and nice light tan head. The aroma doesn't match up to the look of the beer, with a fairly typical, but still nice, lager nose. The flavor is very light, with a short dry finish, but this beer just doesn't meet the hype for me. Good, though, nevertheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is probably one of my favorite american lagers along with Sam Adams. Nice color with slight cloudiness. Aroma is malty and a little hop fragrance. Very smooth on the palate unlike other lagers which have a little more effervescence to them. This was about the only beer on the menu tonight worth having. It's a shame restaurants don't give their beer selection half the attention their wine menus get.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 This is perhaps my favorite beer. It has a good smell, and a very malty taste. I was not impressed the first few times I drank an Anchor Steam, however now I have drank alot of it, and I believe it gets better the more times you enjoy one of these. Rerate - yeah its good, but its not as good as it was when I first got hooked on good beer. Still something I will drink anytime.

Had this on draught in St. Charles, Illinois. Overrated, but excellent. I actually didn't know what to expect. Appearance of a pale ale with the malty fresh taste of a red. Crystal clear, little head.

The last of a dying breed, California Steam beer. What a concept. Brewing ale with lager yeast. Pours out a deep copper
color. Nice head, malty aromas. Pretty fair beer in all.

A bit of a disappointment. It's not that good. A special malty aroma, fine light amber color. High level of bitterness in the finish. But my first impression was that something was wrong.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. I never did pour my recent six pack into a glass so I am judging appearance and aroma on memory. Of the macros' this is one I can drink over and over and over.

Malty and fruity nose. a little bit cloudy, amber coloured beer. Head doesn't remain. Taste is malty, fruits and a hopbitter/malty finish. Okay brew, not impressive.
