A beautiful looking and smelling beer. The flavour doesnít quite stand up to that initial expectation, but itís quite good. Iíve only had it bottled, but I enjoy it very much especially with bar food as the hops really cut through.

This is a good beer. I am only able to find it at two places in my area. I really want to try the Foghorn Ale though. Overall, this was a plesant beer, and went well with dinner.*update- After trying these a bit more, I am begining to find the Anchor beers to have a bit to much of a hops bite to them. They are supposed to be that way, but I like a smoother tasting beer with less hoppy bite.

Ale or Lager? Lager or Ale? Whatever it is, Iíll have another one.
Malty, with agressive hop finish

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2003 To me, the aroma says it all. And then when you get into it, a malty grainy palate that sort of melts on the tongue. Smooth dryish finish. Take it out of the frig a few minutes before enjoying this classic. It's a keeper!

A very floral beer with a good dosing of malt chewiness. A great drinking beer but far too expensive for what it is.

I liked this beer. Good floral hop tones without being bitter. Very smooth. Not overly flavourful, but enjoyable.

Overall, a decent beer, it has some interesting flavors, a definate wheat and floral presence.
