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.

A good beer seeing as this was the only beer that was in the liquor stores cooler I hadn’t tried. I probably wouldn’t drink this on a daily basis but was a good taste and smooth finish.

The start of the california common. Floral/citric aroma. Golden color with a thicker off white head. Fairly thick with strong malt flavors. Spicy fizzy finish.

A microbrew before microbrews bacame popular. Had it way back when, and just had another. Still like it, though it loses a little something to its more agressive modern micro cousins.

007lund (92) - Ann Arbor, USA - JUL 24, 2002
Has a nice, long finish. Nice head, good body, and great taste. This is the sleeper beer of the US- not well known, but destroys the major labels.

Not much to taste in this beer besides the malt and hops. But it looks good, tastes good, and leaves you feeling well.
