The first words out of my mouth were. “mm, tastes like aluminum.” (We got the canned version, but despite pouring in glasses, still tasted metallic. Perhaps our local establishment does not move a great deal of this product either.) That aside, it was disappointingly much like a Milwaukie’s best ice with a smattering of caramel malt to disguise the fact. :-/ It is what it is. One could do worse, and it may prove an effective gateway beer, but not likely for those who would be inclined to engage in the reviewing of beers.
