I can get this canned, bottled, or on tap. This review is for the tap variety. I drank a big mug at the Outback steakhouse in El Cajon. Pairs very nicely with their prime rib. The aroma was barely detectable due to the beer being served to cold and in a frozen mug. What nose there was showed some earthy biscuits and sweet malts. Color was a clear golden-brass color with large foamy white head. The head showed some lacing and lasted a log while. Flavors of yeast, biscuit, light malts and cedar. mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery. Anti-climatic finish with mild hops that leaves you wanting a big steak (so its a good thing they serve this at a steakhouse!). Overall: Recommended with conditions and reservations.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.

Serving type: can
