Anchor Brewing Company Meyer Lemon Lager
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Anchor Brewing Company Meyer Lemon Lager.
From the Anchor Brewing Company website: “Inspiration can strike at any time. For brewers, time is often spent talking about different herbs, beer styles, flavors, or brewing methods with an expectation of the final product. Other times, it’s a creative force built on brewing experience that drives new beers that launch into the stratosphere. Truthfully, many ‘inspirations’ live out their days humbly in the taproom to be enjoyed by only a few. In any case, the road planned isn’t always the road traveled, which definitely applies to our newest canned brew, Anchor Meyer Lemon Lager™. - See more here”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a large white head leaving patches of lacing.
Aroma: Lemons are way up front – tart and sweet smelling, grainy malt and some lager yeast.
Taste: Lemon – both juice and zest flavors, bready and pale malts, some spice and earthy notes.
Overall: Crisp and light, Anchor Brewing Company Meyer Lemon Lager is refreshing. This 4.5% ABV is something I will certainly purchase again – a great summer session beer.
