Another Green Beacon favourite that lets the distinct malt profile clearly take centre stage. Pale and Amber grists from a world famous British floor maltser, combine wonderfully to lend sublime malt character and depth to this amber ale. Copper in colour and hopped with traditional Fuggles and Goldings, Anchor is a craft delight that is good drinking all year round and a nice change up for those who prefer a malty backbone to their ales.

On tap at the brewery May 2013. Great beer with a deep copper ruby colour and loads of caramel and malt in the aroma. Great session beer that keeps you coming back again and again.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 9 July 2014 = draught at Archive Beer Boutique. Poured a clear coppery colour with 5mm of light tan foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation low to medium with medium sized bubbles. Aroma malty and with a nice sweet hops. Taste nice sweet fruity hops and slight malt. Light body. Smooth, crisp, refreshing with a bit of a dry finish plus a lingering mild bitterness. Much better than the previous taste. 22 June 2013 = draught at brewpub. Poured an uninviting cloudy coppery brown with a thin line of bubbles for a head which laced OK. No visible carbonation. Aroma faintly of malt. Taste initially of semi-sweet caramel and faint bitterness mid-palate. Light body, bordering on watery. Long tart bitter finish.
