As I grow older, I like a drinkable, lighter lager. Pushing a little upscale from my normal Narragansett and PBR, I found this beer to be great. Highly drinkable, clean and crisp taste with just a hint of hoppiness. It's going to stay in the rotation.

In 1876, thanks to an ice pond in the mountains and a belief that anything is possible in the Golden State, a little brewery named Boca created California's first genuine lager. Anchor California Lager® is our re-creation of this historic beer. Made in San Francisco with two-row California barley, Cluster hops (the premier hop in 19th-century California), and our own lager yeast, this all-malt brew is kräusened and lagered in our cellars. Its golden color, distinctive aroma, creamy head, balanced depth of flavor, and smooth finish make Anchor California Lager® a delicious celebration of California’s unique brewing heritage.View all products by Anchor Brewing CompanyCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

if this is your first bear you've ever had go away. but jokes aside the beer is comparable to a light Guinness if there were such a thing but a stronger dark more dinner time lager the one I mind is Samuel Adams Boston , but I would recommend this in a pint size and to truly enjoy this beer and it's little to no head is with a steak with potatoes, this beer has a history and it's quite enjoyable while reading about it's history while drinking it so cheers to a piece of California tradition that is this beer.
