3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, lambent gold with a high, large-grained, cream-colored head with lots of visible carbonation and lace. Nose is lime, wheat toast, gardenias, and a touch of burnt malt; it’s quite weak. Somewhat vegetal on the front of the tongue, with butterscotch malt kicking in right after; the vegetal note turns herbal with substantial body and bitterness on the back of the tongue. Finish is medium to long with citric lime notes. Not a bad lager, but nothing really notable about it. No flaws, but no hook either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Save On. Clear golden with lasting head and lace and rising bubbles. Mild bready grassy woody aroma. Mild crackery honey sweetness with very clean grassy woody mildly bitter finish. Light body. Effervescent carbo. It is what it is, which is pretty good. Wonder how like it will continue to take for Anchor to go big.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-pours lite orange with a small soapy white head and no lacing. nose is somewhat musty-wet grains, sort of wet cardboard thing going on. I dont think this beer is that old, i think they just use old or shitty malt. flavors exhibit these wet cardboard and cracker like malt profile. long grainy finish with some very faint spicy hops but pretty dull hop profile. really not into this one very much. i wonder what it is like on fresh tap?

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
smells like my minds’ nose-vision of what beer should smell like. The smell I conjured up while watching the simpsons in grade school. Homer would drool over a beer and I would imagine a smell like this. It’s not a great smell nor is it a bad one. It just is a beer smell. Appearance is hard for me to judge. I don’t have many biasses and usually think most brown transparent liquids look healthy to me. This does not taste like a traditional lager, which is a shift from what the aroma would suggest. I find it tangy and sweet. Slightly bitter. A taste that comes on strong initially but eventually fades the more I sip(i suppose that is the case for all beer). I didn’t love the palate and decided to give it a modest 3. It sparkled in the mouth a little too long. Overall I am enjoying the beer and happy I purchased it at 2.99 for a single bottle.
