Anchor California Lager

 

Anchor Brewing

San Francisco

Style: American lager

Alcohol: 4.9%

IBUs: Unknown

Serving Style: 12-oz. bottles and keg (our sample from draft)

Availability: Year round in select U.S. markets.

 

Appeaance : “Dark straw color.”

Aroma : “Smells like beer.”

Taste : “Solid, assertive, but not aggressive flavor. Not fruity like some Belgians. Nice finish. Piquant, but not astringent. Some character there, but not in a way that's going to stay there and bother you.”

Food Affinity : “Would stand up to a whole lot of possibilities. More character than most American lagers. Would go well with a burger and this pint was enjoyed while eating some spicy chicken wings.”
