Anchor Summer Beer
Bottle - Clear light gold color to it. I got very little head on this one when I poured it. Crisp and a lot of dryness, makes me want to drink a glass of water to wash it down. Very subtle aroma of the malt and carries over on the palate. Flavor lingers a while on this one but not pronounced. Not a bad wheat beer, middle if the road for my palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wheat with suggestions of grass meet the nose while the pour is a clear light amber with a lasting, but thin white head which provides moderate lacing. The taste is malt forward and follows the nose - wheat and yeast. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a good session beer, even if the flavor is somewhat subdued, for a hot summer afternoon of horseshoes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can’t believe the low ratings, this is how a wheat ale should be done. Tight creamy head and clear golden body, light malt aroma, nice bready taste, velvety mouthfeel. Near perfectly crafted.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/1/2014. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Slight grassy/earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice pale wheat ale. Good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
