Anchor Brewing (San Francisco, CA)
""Anchor Steam® Beer owes its deep amber color, thick, creamy head, and rich, distinctive flavor to a historic brewing process like none other.
It is a process that combines deep respect for craft brewing tradition with many decades of evolution to arrive at a unique approach: a blend of pale and caramel malts, fermentation with lager yeast at warmer ale temperatures in shallow open-air fermenters, and gentle carbonation in our cellars through an all-natural process called kräusening.""
A true classic.
Well balanced and a very refreshing, drinkable brew.
The mild bitterness is nicely offset by an herbal, slightly citrus, sweetness at the finish.
Hops: Northern Brewer
Malt: Two-row Pale, Caramel
