Struck me as overly hoppy at first, but after a few bottles (over a few days...) it grew on me, just like other heavily hopped beers.

Not much to say that already hasn't been said. A smooth quality beer that's even better on tap. Clean aftertaste with just enough bite to make it interesting. Always enjoyable.

On tap at Ashley's, Ann Arbor. Exceptionally clean, with a crisp malting and body galore, subtle (only slightly floral) hopping. Delicious and super quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2003 A light, clean beer (as they put it) with nice subtle flavors. Not much in the aroma department, but based on Anchor's unique brewing techniques, it's hard to know what to expect in this style. It's a nice session beer with a refreshing finish. Good on a hot day!
