COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our friends of Chris Robinson Brotherhood released their new album “Phosphorescent Harvest” and kicked off their U.S. tour in the SF Bay Area earlier this spring. To celebrate, we tapped the first keg of our Brotherhood Steam Beer, a Golden State Collaboration of handcrafted California tunes and handcrafted California brews. Inspired by the brewing tradition of our flagship, Anchor Steam® Beer, Brotherhood Steam Beer is brewed with its own unique recipe. A distinct malt bill gives the beer its copper color, and dry-hopping with Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops adds aromatic hints of citrus and mint. The result is a smooth, full-bodied malt flavor with a lingering, fresh hop finish. A long-standing English brewery tradition is to designate their beers, “Ordinary”, “Best or Special”, and “Extra Special Bitter” (ESB) to note beers of increasing strength. In the spirit of that tradition, we like to think of Brotherhood Steam Beer as an Extra Special Lager (ESL), aka “The Gig Beer” – an easy drinking brew from the first set to encore. This collaborative brew will be tapped at music venues across the US to celebrate the Brotherhood’s new album. Check out “Phosphorescent Harvest” and upcoming CRB tour dates.

Aroma - sort of biscuity does not mirror the taste much. Sort of tannic. Mild dry hops. Appearance - the body is a clean amber with good effervescence. The head is buff in color and around 2" and holds tight. Speckled lacing. Taste - has a caramel malted body with some pungent dry PNW piney hops. You pick up some toast towards the end as the beer comes up in temperature. Palate - the body is medium, lean (not thin) texture, carbonation is lively, finish has a little bitterness and some tang.

A murky orange color with a white head. The aroma is mostly citrus and caramel with a hint of cardboard. The flavor is rather malty and sweet with some caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. This is much sweeter than regular Anchor Steam. Im getting some peppermint in the aftertaste. Overall an interesting beer with a different spin on Steam! Cheers Ernie! :D

Bottle. Amber beer with a strong frothy head. The aroma is bready with mild roastedness, and the flavour is reasonably bitter with a good finish and good roastedness. Overall a nice gently hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (8591) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2017
Weird one. Whiffs of meaty yeast, honey and lemon lozenges, menthol and booze. Sugar coated almond and meaty yeasty flavour with a Halls Mentholyptus note taking over. Dry hops gone missing in a gloopy fog of molten throat sweet vapour. Not much to recommend here. Bitter like peppermint oil. Unbalanced. Not hoppy.
