I've been told that this isn't brewed the same an Anchor Steam beer - but it leaves me with the same aftertaste. It doesn't taste like it, it's fuller with more flavor, but in the end - the finish is just something I can't nail down. It's not bitter, it's not sweet, it's not fruity. But it's different. Light and smooth, I could drink a lot of these. Not the best they offer, but one of the easiest-drinking.
