Bottle at home. Golden with a small white head. Malty aroma with some toffee and biscuit, along with fruity notes of apple and a touch of grass. Sweetish malty and fruity flavour with grassy hops and a mild bitter finish.

Anchor makes great beers. This is not a great beer, but they have done about as much as you can with a simple lager. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp caramel malt aroma with some bready notes, brown sugar and faint cardboard. Golden appearance with a thin white foam. Flavors of graham cracker, brown sugar syrup, toast and cardboard. Overall, not too bad. Pretty simple amber lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ. bottle into a tulip glass.
Aroma- has a strong sweet aroma with a backdrop of grass and hops
Appearance- pours a golden orange color with a thick white head.
Taste- Crisp barley flavored beer with some spice thrown in.
Palate- a dry beer with that is medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall- a really good beer from Anchor, not as good as their Anchor Steam or Porter offerings but worth a try.

355ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.19):
This one was a very nice Anchor offering, not their best by any means but certainly not their worst either, a great pale lager that comes out miles ahead of the run-of-the-mill macro crap. The clean and crisp taste with the hints of citrus were excellent and the beer was a very easy one to drink; a beer well worth picking up.

I like the bottle and label this lager came in. The color of the lager was a nice golden color and a nice white head to it. I’m not a fan of overly hoppy beer and this one was just about right.
