3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, maple gold. BIg ivory head. Slope-shouldered Anchor 12oz’er with a good label and cap. Cereal, sweetish malt lager aroma. Sweet, smooth, nicely bitter, a little astringent, malty. Mouthy, with a cereal finish. There is nothing that really stands out about this beer, except for its balance and incredible drinkability. Well done. ABC, Betton.

Draught @ In de Wildeman. Clear golden color, medium sized lightly off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is very faint, probably due to it being served very cold. Taste is nothing out of the ordinary: malts, slightly grains, nicely bitter. Decent lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rustic hop bitterness under the cap, more like a Northern Brewer. Foams up a lot when poured into my Sam Adams glass. Just a tad darker than the usual pale lager color, while most old-time lagers (Juengling, Sam) tend to be darker. That slight oxidation that comes with most light lagers. Taste is both highly bittered from that "all-purpose hop," and a bit sweet. If they used a truly historical 2-row barley, they might have had to amp it up with adjunct. An interesting beer, but it’s a little too close to a Pabst for me.
