COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We are excited to announce the debut of Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer™, a limited release inspired by Anchor Steam® Beer, the original California Common. San Francisco’s famous Anchor Steam® Beer is unique for its brewing process which has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. To give this classic beer a radically traditional twist, Brewmaster Scott Ungermann created Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer. Made with its own special recipe, the brew is dry-hopped with a blend of new and traditional hops. The result weds the rich maltiness of Anchor Steam with an alluring fragrant hoppiness of our ales. Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Product Image“Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer is both a historical nod to our roots and a cutting edge, modern beer,” said Brewmaster Scott Ungermann. “We took our most popular, classic beer and gave it a contemporary twist by introducing a lighter body and an elevated, dynamic hop profile using new and classic hop varieties. The result is a California Common with a unique hop bitterness balanced by a light malty sweetness.” The original Anchor Steam Beer has rich caramel malt flavors balanced by an herbal hop spiciness. Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer, on the other hand, has flavors of light malty sweetness with distinct aromas of citrus and stone fruit, and a lingering, bitter hop finish. Brilliant amber in color with a tight, tan head, Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer is moderately full in body, smooth and velvety.

Not a bad beer. I prefer the original when it comes to sub-craft/non-macro beers but this is good. Aroma is all malt. Light caramel and toffee flavors. Pour was a nice medium dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was decent. Light but chewy and malty. The hop flavor clashed with the smooth maltiness. It was a nice variation of the beer but it didn’t really work. Nice carbonation.
