Bottle. No head, color is a very dark amber. Nose smells like honey (that's a first for me!). Tasts is bitter and sweet at the same time. There is defiinately a note of honey in there! Also present is a strong malt flavor. Overall this is a pretty god beer, I was quite surprised. This would go so well with some good Tex-Mex.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 This beer is getting some bad ratings. It must have been placed in too high a weight class. You guys are comparing it to much better and more expensive beer. I very much enjoy this while I was playing poker. It didn't retain the head for very long, but so what, I think it tasted pretty good for what it is.

I was expecting a lot more from this. Okay flavor and aroma, and it wasn't as dark as I thought it to be. A decent beer but it didn't meet my expectations.

Pours amber with a thin fizzy head, not much nose to speak of, malty and slightly sweet, very fizzy and refreshing. Cuts through mexican food like quacamole really well.
