Default Anyone notice any changes to Anchor Steam?

I know they were sold a few months ago, and the new owners goals were to expand their production and reach more areas. I got a bottle at a restaurant yesterday and was completely disapointed. It tasted more malty than usual, and it didn't seem like Northern Brewer hops were used, but I'm not sure what type of hops they tasted like.

I had a few bottles last week and it was fine. I am hoping that it was just an old bottle or something, I would to hate for them to ruin such a good thing. Anyone else notice anything different in the past week or so?

They haven't changed the recipe a bit. You probably got an improperly stored bottle.

I hope. what struck me as odd though was when I poured it, the head was pure white, it didn't have the amber tint it usually has. that doesn't seem like a storage issue. any clue what could cause that?


I am sure I will be buying it many times again in the near future, so I'm sure I will figure out whats going on.

I had no idea Anchor Brewery had changed hands. So Fritz Maytag no longer owns Anchor Brewery?

Tastes exactly the same to me. It's still one my favorite beers.
