Bottle. Looks fine - clear amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Check. Aroma is caramel, metal, Mississippi river seaweed. Check. Flavor is like a pale lager plus the above. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter. I now have a mouth full of pennies and river mud. Medium body.
