Had on tap at Elliots in Seattle. Nice frozen glass. Outside of the glass, I was very underwhelmed. Copper appearance, no head, little lacing. I smelled...and smelled...nothing. A malty chemically type of taste. Went down well, more of a large consumer type of taste which is fine if I can get 30 of them for $20. I was expecting more, don't know why. Hate writing reviews like this, but this disappointed.
