Pours a clear, brown the color of leather. A good sized light tan head develops before settling to a solid film that last a long time. Some lace but nothing to really write home about.
Smell is malt, nut, grape, light hops and a metallic note you don't get on tap. Balance is otherwise good.
Taste is similar with malt, grape(?), nut, caramel and the metallic note. Balance is decent but the metallic presence is a bit off-putting.
Body is medium-light with a slightly watery finish. Effervescence is medium. I used to drink this by the case, well, buy it that way at least. Now I'm wondering why I loved it so much. Never really noticed the metal note then. This is much better on tap, the difference is so pronounced, more so than any other beer I've ever had.
