Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 184: Sail & Anchor Amber Ale

Sail & Anchor Amber Ale

Pours a copper colour with a large, foamy white head. No carbonation visible in the glass.

First Sip: A lot of lemon citrus up front, with a small taste of malt. The lemon hides the hops - lots of citrus on the back of the tongue that fades to the crisp, dry hop flavours. Medium mouth feel with a mild carbonation tingle on the tongue.

Not what I expected for an amber ale. There is a lot of citrus in this one, but not so much that you can't drink it. It's very refreshing, but not in a beery way, and highly drinkable. It really does go down easily. It's an excellent warm day brew.

A mild cheddar cheese works well with this one - anything stronger would kill the beerness.
