3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on-tap at the The Batdorf into a standard pint.
A - Pours orange-ish yellow with a small one finger tall white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.
S - Smells of lightly toasted sweet buiscuity malt, earthy hops, and a touch of spice toward the end. Simple yet enjoyable.
T - The taste is pretty similar to the nose. Hints of sweet caramel malt, earthy hops, light spice, and the ever present buiscuity feel. The flavors are simple yet enjoyable. It goes down easy and often.
M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Light body with some lingering buiscuity sweetness in the finish.
O - This is my favorite Cali common. The flavors are simple and it is extremely easy drinking. I am glad we are finally starting to see more Anchor products in our area.

Bottle. Interesting history, nice label and bottle. Really wanted to like this, but truth is when it comes to taste this is just another boring beer. There is some lingering flavor, maybe citrusy, but just weak overall. Don’t understand what all the fuss is about.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nose of bready, grainy lightly roasted malts and some very light citrus. Pours a deep amber with a very small head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Malt heavy taste. Sweet caramel and bread malts. Little bit of lemon rind with a squeeze of orange. Goes down easy, with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer, but wouldn’t go out of my way to have it.

My first experience with a non-national microbrew beer, before the term existed, in 1980s San Francisco. Enjoyed many times since then. Full bodied, malty, but well balanced with hops. Good character.
