This is the beer of choice when visiting San Francisco. It's somewhat of a dark beer but without a very heavy flavor. It's not a light beer and after only a few rounds the beer tends to give me that intoxicted affect.

I also had this in the bottle and didn't notice any differences. It definately has a signature taste. There is also a light lager version that I tried and it's probably what I would switch to when I'm ready to keep drinking.
