Anchor Small Beer

I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, and I finally got around to getting some on my recent jaunt up the East Coast (we don’t get this particular Anchor product in GA). $3.79, it came from State Line Liquors. 1 Pint, 6 floz “Anchor Style” shaped bottle, a really good looking presentation. 7LP in the usual Anchor style, dot-matrix printing on the rear label.
Pour reveals plenty of head and lace, and a lovely golden, orange clear body. Lace is very good, carbonation is high. Very mild citrus hop nose, which is repeated in the initial taste. After that the beer becomes a simple, dry and clean Pale Ale. Lovely, tasty malts but with a tart edge. Aftertaste comes through with a delicious dry and mild bitterness. It lingers a little.
VERY quenching, and tasty. ABV is attractive to me.
I would imagine that a lot of people will miss the point of this beer, but if you can appreciate a simple, well made beer then this is one you must try – very nice, delighted to have tried it.
