Anchor Steam

Anchor Steam by Anchor Brewing is an American craft beer that has survived. We are fortunate for that fact. It is one of the early American craft beers that I tasted. Anchor Steam along with a handful of other pioneers made me realize back in college that the swill I was drinking was ludicrous.

Anchor Steam has a nice bread and slightly sweet malt backbone that holds up against spice and grass hops. There is a slight spicey bitterness that quickly relinquishes to a smooth, crisp, and refreshing finish.

It has been a while since I gave Anchor Steam a whirl. It won’t be again as I am leaning towards this being the annual Halloween wagon beer. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 8.8

Useless Fact: At the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 four future presidents were in attendance: Benjamin Harrison, Chester Alan Arthur, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James A. Garfield.
