Ohhh, damn. This beer is FIRE! This attempt at crossing an Anchor Steam with a Pilsner Urquell turned out entirely different that what I thought it would be. But that is very good in this case! This one has a a nice hop aroma (all Saaz!), and the feel of Anchor Steam at first, then upon swallow, quickly gave way to a nice roasty taste! It is the weirdest beer I've had, but tastes awesome. I used #2112 yeast, the Steam-style one, so I'm not sure if it should be called a lager. It has a nice aroma of hops, plus the roastiness of a porter. Carbonation was lively, more than expected, but it made for an interesting beer.
