While we were out in Anaheim (months ago), we managed to catch a Ducks game. I really enjoyed the arena and I always liked the team, having grown up with the Disney movie. Let’s discuss a beer that hails from Anaheim.
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Anaheim is a city in Orange County, California, part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 336,265, making it the most populous city in Orange County and the 10th-most populous city in California. Anaheim is the second-largest city in Orange County in terms of land area, and is known for being the home of the Disneyland Resort, the Anaheim Convention Center, and two major sports teams: the Anaheim Ducks ice hockey club and the Los Angeles Angels baseball team. Anaheim was founded by fifty German families in 1857 and incorporated as the second city in Los Angeles County on March 18, 1876; Orange County was split off from Los Angeles County in 1889. Anaheim remained largely an agricultural community until Disneyland opened in 1955. This led to the construction of several hotels and motels around the area, and residential districts in Anaheim soon followed. The city also developed into an industrial center, producing electronics, aircraft parts and canned fruit. Anaheim is a charter city.”
Random: I liked Anaheim a lot more than I thought I was going to. I went to Disneyland as a kid and don’t remember liking it as much as I did as an adult.
Since this was another beer that I had poolside, I have no comments about the appearance or the head. But, I did get a pleasant odor of grains and some mineral water. The taste was had some cracker to it, along with some floral notes. There was a touch of grass as well. The body was light with a decent amount of carbonation. The finish was quick with flowers and cracker. This beer went down easily, but not the best of the style I’ve had.
