This ale seems so well balanced that it’s almost boring. There’s some maltiness and some hops and some carbonation, but nothing stands out. It’s not a bad brew; it’s just plain. PGA324 (86) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Clear copper beer with long lasting hops flavor -- too long for me. Very aromatic (hops/floral). Thin head and average lacing. Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2006
dark color, fluffy thick head, some sweetness, medium carbonation.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small, but lasting off-white head. Aromas of toasted malt, carmel, and a bit floral. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of toasted malt, and some floral hops with a crisp, bittter finish. maupie (1080) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2006
This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is very bitter with a light smooked afther tast.

Amber red in color, nice big white head that dissipates quickly. Flavor of roasted malts. light floral hop aroma. has a surprisingly smooth clean finish. jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2006
12oz bottle: Amber red in color. Big white head, somewhat diminishing. Aroma of malt, some hops, not much aroma. Bitter taste, malts, sour. Not very fizzy. Pinnhead (93) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Nice to look at but not a beer of my preference. Has it’s merits but in terms of taste, i.e NOT water, but not flavorful to catch my interest. I would not spit it out.

This one didn’t do much for me, and I didn’t get much of the "floral hop aroma" mentioned in the commercial description, but I did get almost a little maltiness. The maltiness in the aroma as well as the flavour is somewhere between lager and ale. Mouth feel is a little sticky, medium bodied. Hops didn’t show much for me in the flavour either. Not bad, but not my style. Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Poured a medium golden color with a thin white head. A tart wheat aroma? The Anchor Steam I had must have been a bad one because it had little to no taste at all. What little taste it had stuck in my mouth. Interesting.
