So lets jump head first back into the beer.
Name: Anchor Steam Beer
Brewery: Anchor Brewery
Country: USA, San Francisco, California.
Price: $15.10 CAD for a Six Pack/ $2.52 a bottle.
"Light amber colour with dense head; aromas of spice, grain and sweet toasted malt with floral notes; dry, medium bodied, rich, creamy with notes of nut and grain and a long finish."
Packaging: Classic looking brown bottle, with the stylist anchor motif. Very classic looking, but doesn't help it jump of the shelves in my opinion.
Sight: A nice amber coloured beer, with a noticeable bubbles.
Aroma: Malty and a slight hint of caramel.
Taste: Malts, with a slight spicy back of the throat finish. Clean beer that is easy to finish.
Would I buy it again? Yes. It's hard to find a fault in a classic beer like this. Hailing from a brewery believed by many, to have helped with the re-emergence Craft Beer in the USA. This beer is a gateway drug to how good beer should taste. It is beer to introduce lager friends too. It's also a safe bet when faced by an ever increasing tap line-up and it's also one of the most commonly found craft beers around.
If you need a beer to tempt loved ones away from Bud/Coors/Miller then this is the beer to use. I truly believe you would struggle to find a fault with it. Highly recommend for those in your life who aren't ready to be a hophead.
