Anchor Small Beer is Anchor Brewing's attempt at returning to an old tradition of brewing where you make a second beer from the mash of a first beer. This small beer is made from Anchor's Old Foghorn barleywine style ale. Though the Small Beer is made from the Old Foghorn mash the beers couldn't be more different. Anchor Small Beer is only 3.3% ABV. It has a thin bitter taste with barely any malt flavor. You're left with a pretty bland tasting beer. If you want to try a beer style many people don't make anymore, than this is worth a try. However, if you are looking for great tasting beer, I would reach for something else.
