2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I remember this being the first craft beer that I absolutely did not like. Let’s see if the years have changed that:
A: Some off dull stale note in the aroma. Like old hops or something. Malty like a macro..
A: Looks good enough. Nice red orange color. Head is minimal.
T: Super malty which is good but a strange dull bitterness throughout. Finish is off having that stale dull bitter note.
P: Light on palate. Finish is dull.
Overall not as bad as I remember but still not good. That stale hop bitterness cuts through in every aspect which takes away from the maltiness.
Культовое пиво от пивоварни Анкор. Аромат в основном хмелевой. Пенка быстро падает. Очень приятный янтарный цвет. Во вкусе за основу свою берет солод. Солод с слегка карамельным привкусом. Очень необычно, но когда пьешь это пиво, полость рта как будто слегка замораживается буквально на несколько секунд.Послевкусие с легкой хмелевой горчинкой.

330ml bottle. Pours hazy amber, white head. Aroma is grainy, citrussy, mildly fruity. Barnyard, herbal notes, grain, fruits, pilsnery notes in taste. Some hopiness in finish. Medium bodied, average carbo. Drinkable, but bit bland. khanja (7) - - NOV 6, 2017 does not count
330ml bottle. Quite dark pouring, good bubbly white head. Malty nose with a slight sweetness. Good beery mouth, with malt and hop flavour. Light and easy to drink. Not enough bitter/hoppiness for me but still good enough to have one or two.

I don't get what the big deal with anchor steam is. It just doesn't taste very good and theres countless other beers that I would have before it. TheChaBra (15) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2017
An easy go-to beer at the bars that serve it. This beer is worth the hype it gets - it has a great taste and goes down smooth.

Purchased at Bi-Rite in Casper.
This pours from 12oz bottle a clear amber gold with a nice medium sized head of foam that sticks around for the entire session and it has good lacing.
The smell is pretty delicate but I get some hop bitterness and some roasted malt.
The taste is very good and flavourful. Roasted malt and grain that's semi sweet hits me first and then some caramel malt provides some sweetness and that's backed up by a good hop profile that adds some nice bitterness. It has a very good mouthfeel and has medium carbonation. The finish is all nice and bitter and it leaves a short but pleasing aftertaste. This is a *very* solid brew that I need to visit more often. I heartily recommend it!

Very solid, medium malt; more full-bodied than I recall from prior tasting. It is a great session brew that has a good bite but still easy drinking. junkyarddawg (12) - Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Amber color. Frothy white head. Toasty malt flavor. Bitter kick in the middle and end. Gets more bitter as it warms so drink it fast. wheldfond18 (12) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Really well balanced beer between earthy hops and a lighter fruit finish. It strikes a great balance between rich and light. azzurro (417) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2017
I noticed the popularity of Anchor on this site. Picked one at the LCBO during the summer to eventually try it. well balanced and tasteful for a low alcohol %. I like the small size of the bottle.
