Just like you, but different
“Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere’s ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.”
Expecting something that pour with gentle carbonation, very hoppy and with a decent head, oh and a pale yellow.
It’s more golden than yellow, does have a head, and the aroma isn’t all that unpleasant. Hoppiness easily picked out but not alarming or sharp. Pleasantly carbonated, and mildly bitter. Very palatable.
It’s very nice as an Pale Ale, I’m quite happy that I chose this, it’s not challenging, it’s not disappointing it’s just doing what it’s doing. The pdubyah-o-meter says easily 7.75, but only that low because it has no real personality of it’s own. Slightly better than Joe Average though, and this, again, would be a beer that you could safely pick and not be disappointed.
I’m enjoying the softness, the understated hops, the lovely balance of malt and it’s all good.
Easily a session beer, and the if this is where the bar is for Anchor then I’m looking forward to the rest.
