Jon Filson on Anchor Steam

Following on the theme of his Pilsner Urquell piece from a couple of weeks ago, Jon Filson devotes this week's Suck It Back column to another style-defining classic, Anchor Steam.

Keeping his generally non-beer-saavy audience in mind, he gives a quick history of Anchor Brewing, explaining their role as one of the driving forces behind today's North American microbrewing scene, and he also gives the beer itself a mini-review:

Anchor Steam is called a California Common beer. It's not a common style, but if you want to know what it's like, Anchor Steam is actually the archetype. There are significant hops and an amber colour, but, overall, this is a medium-flavour beer with a few surprises. Is that a hint of mint in there somewhere? Maybe just a touch.
