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.

Clear copper brew with nice head and a herbal aroma. Taste is hops up front, citrus, spicy, then a hit of the caramel malts. It’s OK but not great as I would have expected for the higher price tag. Well looking at the cost I would not only have expected better taste but also a higher ABV and for it to be in a proper bottle rather than a cheap CAN. So overall not good.

colui72 (981) - HONG KONG - MAY 29, 2017
Pours hazy amber, medium white head and lot of lacing. Aroma of ripe fruits and light citrus. It gets lager malts, caramel, sharp bitterness balanced by ripe fruit and tangerine. Medium body, creamy, lively carbonation, long dry finish. Decent.

AWISLguy (3016) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2017
12oz can from Antioch Fine Wine, no can date. Copper amber pour with an off-white head. Some streaky lace. Aroma has fruits, light cereal and vague citrus and stone fruits. Taste follows and adds some sweet malts. Tangy in that old-beer Anchor Steam way. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence. The blend is ok, and the carbonation is constant. Finishes tangy bittersweet. Shrug? About what expected. 12

Can: Tang, wood underneath. Clear copper, medium yellow head. Tang again, artificial and sweet. Malty finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. Quite tasty, but I can’t shake the chemical qualities.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2017
12oz can from Sheffiel shop, James Clay importers bb06/2018 (hm). - Bref: the quintessential of judiciously dryhopped, drinkable ale-lager hybrid, UK-US and ESB-CaliCommon crossover. Aroma of Lady Grey granulate, tealeaf, bergamot and candied lemon. Fine caramel (De Strooper wafers) accomodating citrus and orange tea. Herbal and citrus pith bitter finish. Could be the quintessential oldschool US style even before IPA in its way of unifying mutually exclusive ESB-Märzen-Speciale belge.

balloonbuffoon (263) - - MAY 1, 2017
Single 12floz can, no freshness date, paid the equivalent of $1.50, poured into a nonic glass. Color is copper with a slight haze, and the two finger subsides to leave lace. The aroma consists of cut grass. Mouthfeel is medium, and mild tasting of toast and black pepper. I can see this as being a lagered bitter, and for what it is, it is fine.

3.4
weihenweizen (3743) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2017
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Clear copper, medium body, medium carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Aroma is floral herbal hops. Taste is herbal hops, caramel malt, and bitter finish.
