California-cool in a bottle, the Anchor California Lager is a fantastically well-crafted lager. Sweet malts with features of caramel are balanced by a firm, clean bitterness. Don't expect a lot of hoppiness, rather just a clean and balanced American lager. Balanced, refreshing and straightforward, this one goes down really easy.

Brewery Info

Forerunners of America’s craft beer revolution in the 1970’s and 80’s, Anchor is America’s first and oldest craft brewery, with roots dating back to the California gold rush. Entwined with the history of San Francisco, they produce their beer in a traditional copper brewhouse, where ancient techniques are combined with state of the art technology.

Combining all-malt mash and whole-cone hops, Anchor beer ferments in the cool San Francisco air - giving off the steam that gave us the name Anchor Steam Beer. Their Liberty Ale was the original brew that started off the craft beer revolution - not a bad claim to fame!

Well Done Anchor
Review by
Discovered this by accident at local supermarket and decided to give it a try as I'm a long time lover of Anchor Scheme. I agree with other reviewers in that there's better craft lagers out there, but still a nice brew in its own right.

This is quite nice but there's loads alot nicer. It's not a patch on their Steam Beer, which is superb.
