Anchor Small Beer

anchor_small_beer

Called an English Bitter in the English Small Beer tradition, this 3.3% ABV beer is made from the second running of Anchor’s Old Foghorn mash.  The head is big and foamy, and reminiscent of shaving cream.  The nose light and grainy.   The flavor is shockingly bitter, and a bit of a one-note song.  There’s an astringent bitterness all the way through, and there’s really not much else.  I have to say it isn’t what I was expecting from a either a small beer or an English Bitter, and in this case, I don’t know that this is a good thing.

I give it a 2.5 out of 5.
