Anchor Brewing presents Zymaster Series No. 4: Fort Ross Farmhouse Ale, an exciting seasonal brew. It’s described as a Belgian-style farmhouse ale with a California twist. They make it with hops, barley malt, wheat malt, toasted Belgian wheat malt, and a native California plant called Yerba Santa or Holy Herb. The Yerba Santa lends the brew a bitter, spicy flavor that compliments the malty, fruity, undertones. I taste hints of cloves and banana as well. It has an alcohol percentage of 7.2%, and it’s pretty drinkable. If you’re with a group of people and you can’t decide on something dark or something light, this is a pretty decent compromise. It has more flavor than Bud drinkers are used to, but they should experience a real beer every once in a while. And Anchor Brewing Zymaster Series No. 4: Fort Ross Farmhouse Ale is a real beer.
