2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Lucky Labrador, Quimby St, Portland. Hazy amber colour with disappearing off white head. Slightly sickly aroma. Herb hop. Very strange. Watery. It’s like a bad English bitter, but with more earthy hop. I guess that the name is a tip of the hat to Anchor brewery in SF, but this isn’t a very close imitation to Anchor Steam

tap at brewpub - Pours amber, thin head, nice citrus hops aroma. The flavor is moderately hoppy with good balance. The body is light. The taste seems very close to an ESB. This is a solid session beer.
