This is a nice mild beer that feels great after you have had one of your teeth pulled. It looked like beer smelled like beer and tasted like a beer. Never been to San Fran but when I get there I’ll be sure to visit the Anchor Steam. I cant chew Big Red today but A nice certs breath mint is in order before I take my daily haul to the bank. God BlessBeer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color dark with a white foaming and high that lasts for a short time in your beautiful Shaker cup.
In its aroma there this malt, caramel, a delicious aroma of wet grass give a refreshing touch.
The taste clearly there is the presence of caramel malt and hops that refers to a herbaceous with soft bitterness. Very pleasant to drink.
Its aftertaste is dry and again the slight feeling of bitterness is present, but there is at its bottom the sweet malt and a touch of bread. This persists bitterness in the mouth and brings a smoked light after a while. Very interesting.
Good beer and a high drikability. On hot days is an excellent value.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the decades before the regeneration of American brewing this was probably a very good beer. It has been been completely eclipsed by much better efforts since, even though it’s still quite acceptable. And the label is very nice.
