enstilled in golden yet distinctly hidden bitterness this beer brought about a sensation of fulfillment upon my tounge. a quality brew that gives you all that is implied by its legend, well, at least the bottle looks nice. cheers Yuhasz (23) - USA - MAR 30, 2005
Has an aweful after-taste. Going in your mouth is ok, going down is like taking your medicine. Interesting bottle though. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Pours medium amber with frothy white head. Good lacing throughout. tastes slighty hoppy, very smooth and has a bit of thickness that is unexpected. ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Light copper color, off-white head. Aroma is earthy and toasty, with some aromatic hops. Flavor was disappointing. A little toasy malt flavor followed by piney hops. Finish is moderately long. Overated in my opinion. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2005 Decent beer. Light maltiness in the flavor that gives way to a slightly bitter finish. Decent overall.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2005 bottled. a decent american brew, not as hoppy as others, but nice in its own way. JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2005
Nice malty sweet taste,not as good as the other Anchor beers that Ive tried,but still good.A light easy drinking copper coloured beer. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Anchor Steam is the very essence of American microbrews but is now a pretty major brand and no longer from "one of the smallest breweries in the world". Amber coloured with a decent head. Has a nutty full body with a pronounced hoppiness. A bit brown ale-ish - but in a style of it’s own. Is Anchor Steam losing some of it’s character? I find it a bit overrated in general. RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Dark golden to amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both a good balance of the malt and hops. I agree, that there is nothing special about this one, but it is still a very decent beer.
