Product Description

Every sailor crossing the bay of San Francisco in the fog is glad of the foghorn. And likewise, every beer fan will be glad of this Anchor Old Foghorn which was ranked the top barley wine from small American breweries in 1975. It has remained number one ever since, thanks to the use of premium quality ingredients.

Brewed by the Anchor brewery, their Old Foghorn beer uses top-fermentation yeast, whole hops and FWH. Old Foghorn beer is produced using classic brewing methods, then laid down in the brewery's cellars until it reaches the perfect balance between a gentle maltiness and fruitiness, and its exquisite hoppy character, which has made it famous throughout the world.

This is a barley wine-type Ale Beer with a creamy head. The body is ample, thick for a complex and even subtle beer. The nose is hoppy and caramelised with hints of citrus fruits and its alcoholic sweetness is reminiscent of its American roots, typical of American Barley Wines.

The palate is very fruity (touches of citrus fruit and apricot) with a thick texture. Sweet hints of caramel counterbalance the hops and their citrus notes. There is some bitterness, just enough to counteract the sweetness of the malt and fruits. The finish itself is very dry.

These beers have a very long shelf life and can be kept in the bottle for over a decade. They have a depth of delicious flavours that makes them ideal to serve as an after-dinner drink. This is a version of the classic British Barley Wine. The bitterness on the palate of this American beer is enhanced by adding more hops than would be used in Britain.
