’Anchor Steam’ ale, brewed at the Anchor Steam Brewery is the defining example of the style and since I, US Steve and Young Phil have all visited this brewery (albeit a decade apart) we decided to pay homage to the famous ale/lager beer with our very own interpretation. ’Common Conspiracy’, is an amber ale with a gentle, sweet hop aroma. It starts off beautifully malty before the German grown ’Northern Brewer’ hops kick in and lend a refreshing long bitterness.
