COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formally brewed at Hilliard’s Brewing Company. The name originates from an anagram (Anchor Steam) but the key element of this pre-prohibition style beer is the process of fermenting it with a lager yeast at an ale-like higher temperature.

ACHops (1476) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2016
12 oz can @ Hilliard’s. Pours medium copper with thin white head. Aroma is thin light caramel malt, dry on the back. Taste is slightly nutty light caramel malt; oaky, dry, and clean on the finish. Easy drinking, nutty, corny malt body carries through the finish. Not quite of Anchor Steam quality, but in that vicinity taste-wise. One of the better Hilliard’s beers to style.

Sample at SBWF 2015. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, light bread, citrus, grass and some caramel. The body was on the light side. Drinkable but nothing special.

reebtogi (5951) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Sampled during VCBW 2015 on the PNE grounds pouring a golden orange color with a small white head leaving very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some grass and grains. Taste is a grassy and light citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A light easy drinking brew that is fairly standard.

Not very pleasant, sort of sourish and not light enough to be refreshing but not flavorful enough to be good.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Can. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is corn and grains, and seems just a little sickly sweet to me. Taste is that odd corn sweetness that too many lagers have, and that I don’t like. It’s just not my thing.
