Easy to drink. Pretty standard pale. Nothing impressive, but have been drinking lots of dark beers lately. Went well with a citrusy dinner. Low cost and sessionable. Even that last warm sip was ok and not miserable to drink. Would buy a 6-pack to sip on during the summer.
In getting the links I see that this is a year round beer that was first bottled in 1975. Talk about staying power. And lets talk about that label. With a husband who is a sailor, I was a sucker for this bottle.
Folks at Beer Advocate love this.
Here's Anchor Brewing's info on this ale.
