Great session brew that deserves a little more respect than the rating indicates. Since this is a widely available brew, no need to write a long review. Simply a standard of the style, that is crisp, refreshing and mildly hoppy. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2006
bottle - Pours light brown, thin head. Somewhat sweet flavor with a little hops bite. I think it could have used more of the hops character. Decent, fairly crisp finish. It’s okay for a session beer, but a little lacking. mabjork (693) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. Light brown with a light brown head. Has an aroma of btter hops. Has a flavour that consists mainly of malt and at the same time it has a sweet after taste. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Botled. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head that leaves good lacing. Like so many of Anchor’s beers all I can smell is poor smelling yeast, maybe a little malt with it. Slight malt flavor with some jasmine notes to it. I love this beer more for what it is and who brews it rather than what it tastes like. Capa (3617) - DC, Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Amber color with little head. Some hoppyness and sort of sour too. Drinks easily with a little fruityness to it. Not an overly complex flavor, but i still enjoyed it greatly. Probably better for the summer and some sort of outdoor activity than in the middle of winter

(Bottled) Hazy amber color with hardly any head. Caramely-malty, sweetish and buttery toffee aroma with raisins. Caramely-malty, slightly smoky and sweet flavor with a steady, bitter hoppiness in the background. Light to medium-bodied, a bit thin palate with balanced carbonation. An easily drinkable, easily hopped ale. Not bad, but nothing special.

Dark amber pour with a huge off-white head. Rather hoppy aroma with hints of light citrus, very light caramel, and bread. Flavor is light and tangy with notes of hops and bitters nicely blended. Palate is slightly sticky yet watery rather bitter too. A nice stand-by beer for bar-b-q’s and other gatherings with none dark beer drinkers. I was thoroughly pleased with it.

Pours a deep amber color with some light tan head. Aroma is some sweet malts and floral hops, slightly bready. Creamy and tart in the mouth, finishes with a slightly bitter note. waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2006
12/28/05 on Tap @ St. Mark’s Ale House NYC. Pours a small white head with a very light amber body and scents of fruits. The citrus aroma and flavor is off set by some other natural sugars. Hops are present and balance the frutiness out very nicely. Hops don’t overpower the beer though. I love this style. I only wish their were more cal. commons to try. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Thin off-white head on an amber body. light hoppy aroma. Fairly sweet flavor with some hits of flowers.
