Very drinkable. Weak aroma. Beer tasted very smooth with a carmel aftertase. Amber in the glass, smooth tasting with slightly efervesent carbonation astrigent on the palet. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Zesty, effervescent first rate lager. Bready and fruit notes. I should drink this more often.

This beer had a nice head. It tasted a little like coffee with no aftertaste. It was brown in color. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Had during a beer tasting party. Poured amber and tastes malty. Bitter finish yet remarkably balanced. gferd (99) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Not bad, but that also means, not great either. There is a bit of fruityness to the flavour, as well as a good deal of maltyness. Over all, this beer is middle of the road.

Orange copper with creamy white head. The aroma is of carmel malts and a bit of a fruityness. Flavor is a decent smack of malts. Carmel malts, tangy gritty malt. A somewhat bitter finish, appears to be from Cascade hops. Nice decent beer. Clean and crisp on the palate. NachlamSie (3507) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2005
on draught. Anchor Steam pours a light amber with a fizzy white head. The aroma is sweet of pears with some grains. The flavor is of bland hops, a little like paper, with a more pleasant sweetness and wood in the finish. Refreshing at least. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2005
Draught. Slightly dusty aroma. Almost clear dark copper colour. OK flavour, but a little thin. Slightly rough bitterness, hint of aroma hops. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2005
Bright amber-brown color, with a frothy beige head, with a malty, earthy hops aroma follows through on a medium-bodied and roundness palate, with a smooth fruity malty character, flower hops note, leading towards a nice hop dryness finish. beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Available as 500 mL brown bottle from Whole foods, Deerfield, IL. Clear orange amber hued beer with small white diminishing head with fair lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and hop flowers. Medium bodied that starts with a sharp hop bite and slightly sweet malt flavor and finishes dry with slight hop bitterness and nutty flavor. A very good drinkable beer. I had to have this beer after reading about Fritz Maytag and the history of Anchor brewing company in Ken Well’s Travels with Barley (excellent book - it should be required reading for all beer lovers).
