A lager fermented at ale temperatures. This beer fashioned after Anchor Steam has a yeasty slightly citrus flavor from the use of American hops. Caramel maltiness and a fair amount of hops both in the bittering and finish add to the complexity. A truly American style of lager fermented at ale temperatures.
