3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice amber color with a small white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy but not much there. Taste is alright, but nothing out of the ordinary, slightly bitter towards the end. All in all a decent beer but nothing to rave about.

Not quite what I was expecting. Taste like a regular beer, but of a higher quality. Not a lot of flavor, but worth trying.

"A clean tasting beer with floral hop aroma." I only can add that it always amazes me how the distinct hops show thier differences in the start vs. the finish. "She’s Crafty"

Bottle. Perfectly transparent color that actually reminds me of the bottle, if a little lighter. Sudsy head requires maintenance swirling periodically. Overall, it’s not bad looking, but it’s not striking either. Don’t know which nose isn’t working, the beer’s or mine, but I’m not getting much of anything. Flavour: citrus hops, caramel sweetness, more hops to finish and a hop aftertaste. But none of this is really overpowering, so I’d say it’s more of a tasty swill than something to be savored. Very inoffensive beer, especially for a lager.

Hazelnut brown. Steady medium brown head, lace. Aroma of prunes and berries. Bitter, hoppy and some sweetness. Oily and slightly hoppy aftertaste.

Tap: Pours amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is bread, slightly fruity, hoppy, fruit. Nice mild, drinkable flavor with bitter balanced by the malt to give it a slightly overall bitter flavor that is very drinkable. Worth trying on tap anytime.

This pours amber with a creamy head. Aroma of fresh baked bread, bitter hops, and fruit. Flavor is crisp, hoppy and mild. This is smooth and easy drinking. Lace all along the glass. Overall, another fine brew from anchor!

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. No head on this, clear amber-brown body but it was the slightly stale aroma that was off-putting. Redeemed by an attractive hoppy taste with a real crunch to it.

Nice golden brown - or is it brownish gold? Decent foamy head that lasts a while. Classic, slightly sour aroma. Nice carbonation and a mild flavour with the taste of hops and a lingering bitterness. Decent mouthfeel. All in all, a really nice quencher on a hot day. A great beer for quaffing with quality.
