The nose has a malty barley wine quality to it. There's a metallic component to the bitterness profile, not entirely unpleasant but unexpected. The other bitter flavors are really nice though.

Very clear amber color with a minimal head. Pretty straight forward at first with citrus and floral notes but this one hits you hard with a dandelion/carnation aftertaste! Very interesting. More herbal than citrus with hints of black tea and flowers. If you like the bitter aftertaste, this one is for you...

Stronger than I expected, and I wasn't expecting too much out of a 6.5, but the concentration of 16oz cans might make a difference. The west coast is definitely preferable to other styles in my book. Perhaps the warm-up Modelo is having some impact though.
