Don't know the look. I always drink it out of the bottle. The smell is good to me. Just like it says on the bottle, smooth, rich, flavorful. My second favorite AB

Well this stuff has lots of clarity going for it. Other than that, has the appearance of a cuvee of tap water and AAL beer. I did see some lace even though the head wasn't much beyond 1/6". Aroma was municipal water.

Taste still has the bitter metallic coin money feel to it with alka seltzer.

Maybe as a palate cleanser, but otherwise, kinda useless.

1/23/16 Chicago (12 oz bottle poured into tall glass). Very pale clear yellow pour, mild carbonation and head with decent lacing. Faint malt and corn aroma and taste. Somewhat sweet taste, mild hops. Very smooth going down, thin texture with clean taste. I liked their prior offering from decades past much better.
