Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The color is a brownish amber with a thin white head. No lacing

The smell is sweet, somewhat sugary flavor. Also has a bit of a grainy or bread feel.

The taste is a bit malty as first some dry hop flavor. There is some earthy feel to this beer as well, some floral hops and slight fruitiness as well.

This is one pleasant beer. Crisp and clean, with a light drinkable feel and no aftertaste detectable. A great year round beer.

Pale, clear light coppery color with a medium sized cap of off-white dense smooth foam. Settles down slowly to a healthy slim skim and collaring. Drippy lace with some globs sticking.

Aroma is softly clean and grainy with a slight toastyness; creamy, earthy tones keep underneath with a great fresh breadiness displayed on the nose the whole time.

Great fresh flavors, lightly malty with a nudging sweetness always peeking through with what tends to be an always present, fine bready toastyness. Creamy and lightly earthy with a tender texture and easy going malt base. The grain flavors are nicely handled with an eager mildness that lasts a long time. Finishes earthy with a slight grassy edged hoppyness floating along the end of the bready stuff. A great Steam beer by the innovators of the style, Anchor.

Sessionable by the gallons!

Got this in couple of cases a bar was getting rid of because the beer wasn't selling. Poured from a bottle into a pint tumbler.

A: Poured a yellowish amber with a good amount of head. Nice presentation.

S: Malt with accents of fruit (can't tell if it is just floral hops or just plain fruit). No overwhelming typical hops smell.

T: Hops come across with grain and malt. Nice balance. Very clean and earthy.

M: Clean and crisp.

D: Easy to drink any time of year. Very tasty and worth drinking.

That is full of hot air. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a off yellow hue. Good head with nice retention and a slight lace to the glass.

The smell has a enphasis on malt. Some nice kettle caramel notes really come out. Some yeasty notes but light. Some plums and pineapple notes and a minor grape/raisin aroma. Some off oxidation is really a deterrent.

The taste is a good combination of lighter malts with a full body flavor. Creamy almost but with a hint of caramel flavoring. There is a nice spicy hop note more from finishing the bittering hops. A small amount of floral is noticeable but you have to look for it. Some noticeable yeast and oxidation notes as well.

The body is moderate but the creamy texture gives it a bit more character. Overall easy to drink but some minro faults limit the drinkability of this beer.
