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.

Kleg (419) - The Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2017
12 oz can. Clear gold color with a khaki head and very good retention. Good lacing. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Tastes like a mellow pale ale. Light caramel notes and a light hop finish.

DruncanVeasey (8326) - 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.

oobawa (1795) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Not a bad offshoot of Anchor Steam, but not as strong as the original, either. Major malt presence, a deep caramel sweetness offset by apple, berry, and banana esters, with an underlying citrus slant and a slight vegetal tone. Finishes more like an ale than a lager, with a modest herbal hop bitterness and a bready fade. Gorgeous pour, red-orange topped by a healthy white head and tons ’o lace. Caramel nose. Good lager texture, creamy and smooth. But there’s no reason to choose Brotherhood over normal Anchor Steam.

Jabah (550) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2017
I need to drink a regular anchor steam soon to get a fresh comparison, but this does not seem as good to me. Thinner in texture with less malt and flavor. Hops are different (dry-hopped) with more bitter and metallic flavor. Has a crisp feel, yet I prefer the creamy texture of the original steam.

En øl der smager lidt af brown ale, men der er lidt mere smag af det hele. Malten, humlen og ikke mindst eftersmagen.
