I really enjoy this one from Anchor steam, solid alternative to lager options. I loved the tour at Anchor and SF in general

Bright clear amber with a creamy white head. Malty hoppy nose. Taste is bitter with sugar, orange, grass, malts, sweet hops. Finishes bitter with a hint of booze. Good session beer, used be a favorite of mine years ago..and still good.

Bottle from Yamaichi. Finally getting around to rating this. Malty, dry, grassy, herbal hops, a touch of citrus, clean. Amber-orange with lace. Malty, sweet flavor, a bit sugary, oranges, grass, dry, reasonably bitter finish. Light and crisp body. A touch of brown sugar and spices in there too. Clean and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours dark gold with small, white head. Aroma is malty with some fruitness and minty hops aroma. Taste is caramel with light bitterness in the finish. It is refreshing, but boring.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I remember this being the first craft beer that I absolutely did not like. Let’s see if the years have changed that:
A: Some off dull stale note in the aroma. Like old hops or something. Malty like a macro..
A: Looks good enough. Nice red orange color. Head is minimal.
T: Super malty which is good but a strange dull bitterness throughout. Finish is off having that stale dull bitter note.
P: Light on palate. Finish is dull.
Overall not as bad as I remember but still not good. That stale hop bitterness cuts through in every aspect which takes away from the maltiness.

Bottle. Pours a Fizzy yellow.
Aroma. not much on the nose here
Taste. The best way i can describe is a very slight grapefruit bitternes, dominated by Herbal and Nutty Flavours.
Overall, a good beer but not a great one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Somewhat similar to Belgian blond beer: aroma is malty and fruity (peach), with a slight touch of hops. Minimal and quickly disappearing head, amber colour, hazy. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Average carbonation, light body. Nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Subtle flavor. There's nice maltiness in this refreshing beer, but no big flavors. Goes well with the pizza I'm having in SF.
