The glass beer bottle features a brown-hued label. On the label, a color image of Abraham Lincoln holding a beer and standing in front of a log cabin appears. The back of the label contains information regarding the beer and a government warning. A smaller label appears at the bottle's neck. It has the same label image and text with additional documentary information about the beer appearing to the image's left and right.
