Anchor Brewers' Pale Ale Nelson Hop Blend

#16 Top beers 2018
Return to List

First brewed in 2017 and bottled in 2018, Anchor's new Brewers' Pale Ale series will feature evolving recipes that highlight different hop blends throughout the year. The focus of this bottling is New Zealand's Nelson Sauvin hop. Even though it's double dry-hopped, it still boasts a bright, citrusy and grassy aroma that's backed by notes of clean grain and malt. The medium-bodied palate offers a bit more heft, with flavors of just-ripe tropical fruit, melon, candied orange peel and sweet cereal grain. It's smooth and easy to like, with a clear and precise finish that boasts just the right amount of pithy bitterness. Lauren Buzzeo
