Its wide distribution compared to the real rare beers may cause some people to not be so excited about it. Since it’s not super hoppy with a tame label compared to the crazy awesome american microbreweries, some may not go crazy when rating it. I on the other hand, loooooove this beer. It is so smooth, the head is probably one of the best (specially on tap of course) than way too many beer’s I’ve had. Once the head goes away, you can twirl your class and it comes back up. It’s just the perfect beer for me when I want to guarantee myself a good beer. In other words, it’s a safe bet! We tend to forget that safe is safe because it’s GOOD!
