Copper color, small 1/4" white head. Cascade hoppy aroma.

Taste more of the same, solid bitterness especially for an AB product, a little caramel. This was a cool beer in the mid 90s, totally serviceable. A little more bitter than the English genre, but whatever, better for it. Would totally bang again when at a lesser bar or whatnot.

A somewhat dated 12 oz bottle from the back fo the refrigerator, wih the review tempered by memory from fresher bottles.
Look: surprisingly good, with a clear, deep amber body covered by a rather creamy looking, bone-colored head.
Aroma: earthy hops are stronger than the malt base
Flavor: again earthy hops over a sweet and light roast malt base but tainted with some metallic tones (attributed largely to age) and hints of corn.
Feel: Medium body with a very good carbonation level.
O: given a fresh bottle, not bad; even roughly average and, therefore, better than expected.
