Style: California Common Beer
Do you like Anchor Steam?
This is our recipe for the same beer style. We can't call it "steam beer" because Anchor Brewing Company has copyrighted the word, so the style is now called "California Common." This is a special type of lager which is meant to be fermented at warmer temperatures. Although other lagers can be warm fermented, this one must be. Temperatures between 65 and 72 degrees are ideal. This beer has a brilliant amber color, medium-body, with nice full hop flavor and aroma throughout.
