COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam®, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber color, thick creamy head, and rich flavor all testify to our traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for our brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when "steam" seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word "steam" came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, "Steam" has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.

HuskerTan (343) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. A- Grains, wheat, citrus, cereal. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Grains, cereal, malty, water. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- I was quite let down with this one. Granted, I had high expectations, but it just seemed like a glorified macro to me. Like a hybrid between a lager and ale, I just can’t seem to find much love for this one.

Bottle, smell is sweet floral, appearance is clear brown with thin khaki head, taste is a little sweet at first with carbonated bitter finish. Refreshing beer but not unique.

R2k2 (306) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2014
A somewhat dark, but nice honey-colored beer with a somewhat yellow layer of foam. The aroma contains the sweetness of alcohol, despite the fact that it "only" contains 4,8 %. It tastes sweet for about half a second, but this quickly moves on into a bitter taste, with a dry bitter aftertaste. A bit strange, but not bad! Een iets donker, mooi, honingkleurig bier met een lichtgele kraag. In het aroma zit het zoetige van alcohol, ondanks dat er "slechts" 4,8% in zit. De smaak is heel even zoet, maar wordt bijna direct bitter en laat een droge bittere nasmaak achter. Beetje vreemd, maar niet slecht!

kacyper (164) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Piana ładna, szybko się zbija pozostając do końca i oblepiając szkło. Kolor lekko bursztynowy, lekko przejrzyste. Aromaty słodowe, lekko miodowe, karmelowe, chlebowe. Lekka goryczka, lekko słodkawe. W smaku bardziej słodowo-karmelowe. Odczucie w ustach kremowe.
