1554 is pretty good. I have 4 sitting in my fridge still. I think I prefer Fat Tire though.
The only time I'll drink anchor steam is if Im in SF and its on tap. On tap, in SF, its such a better beer. Although, if Im in SF, Im gonna head on down to The Thirsty Bear, and get myself a Golden Vanilla Ale.
as for other anchor steam brews, i did try this in a bottle last year:
not my style. too robustly fruity and hoppy.
if i go robust, i definitely prefer belgians and british (like mcewan's).
that 1554 definitely does look good. might have to try that one.
Mmmm, since you guys keep talking about Fat Tire - Rogue's Santa's Private Reserve is to be released soon !!! I'm not really an amber/red guy, but the Santas kicks ass ! Hoppy hoppy hoppy !!!
