Anchor Brewing Company (San Francisco, CA) has released the sixth edition in their Zymaster Series, Saaremaa Island Ale.
Each offering tells a story, and Saarremaa Island Ale is no different. This beer is inspired by brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s trip to Saaremaa Island in the Baltic Sea. The local beer had a really unique flavor, thanks to the local yeast. He returned from the trip with brewer’s yeast used to create #6.
Zymaster No. 6 is a medium-bitter pale ale with Old World hop flavor and aroma. Made with pale barley malt, it has a light body, clean finish, and overtones of freshly ground clove and allspice similar to a Belgian ale.
Anchor Saaremaa Island Pale Ale will be available in 22oz bottles and draft for a limited time.
Style: Pale Ale
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited one time release.
