Steam beer is an interesting style of beer and, as far as I know, Anchor is the only company that still makes it. This beer has a nice hazy, amber color that makes you think this beer is going to be a medium to full bodied beer. But that’s the trick, it’s actually incredibly light bodied. It has almost an airy quality to the taste that is surprisingly dry. The taste also drops off very quickly leaving almost no finish at all.
If you want a beer with a load of flavor, this is not the beer for you. If you’re looking for a crisp, refreshing beer to quench your thirst on a hot summer day, this is definitely the beer for you.
On a 100-point scale, I give this beer 90 points. I like the beer, but having no finish is kind of off putting to me. I can see why people might rate this higher than me, I just like fuller bodied beers more than the lighter beers.
