Do you like Anchor Steam?

Style: California Common Beer
ABV: 4.8%
Color: Amber

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.

Style: California Common Beer
ABV: 6.0%
Color: Amber

This recipe is in the same style, except this ULTIMATE version is stronger. We can't call it "steam beer" because Anchor Brewing Company has copyrighted the word, so now the beer style is officially "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. Fermentation temperatures of 65 to 72 degrees are ideal. This Ultimate version has more of everything - more malt extract for greater body & higher alcohol content, and more hops. The result is a remarkably balanced beer that's strong and hearty without going over the top.
