Bottle poured into shaker

Dark brown with off white head

This is a beer that drinks like a watery cola. Don't have this as well because it tastes like plants, and burnt veggies. The finish was very metallic!

It smelled like a beer, though!

I either had a bad bottle, or I just don't like it.

Poured from tap into pint glass. It ctually has some lacing.
I know this doesn't have a very good rating but I'm not sure why? Its actually one of the best macro style brews I ever had. Its has some malty flavor and maybe even a munich style lager flavor. I just wish the abv was a bit higher, but other than that its probably a nice safety brew in a pinch.
