Fairly heavy body a little dry lots of malt, but the skunkiness and the "rusty pipes" after taste still lingers with me to this day.
It does its job as what its intended to be an alcohol delivery system. Its got to be ice cold or its nasty. I like its little brother southpaw better.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

First review, figured I should do it on my most recent beer I had, and I gotta say, this is probably the number one on what I call my "Shit beer list." For just a few bucks and to get this kind of beer, going in with low expectations, it isn't bad.

A: Pale straw color. Impressive 4-finger head with little retention.

S: The weak point; musty and corny. Not awful smelling, but certainly not appealing.

T: Decent amount of hops with a stale corn after-taste, but if you're chugging it, it doesn't really matter.

M: Extremely light, but in terms of an adjunct, better than most.

O: Best "Shit beer." If I need beer and I got a few bucks, my money is on this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Found one of these left over from a party, I figured I would rate it. It pours a pale golden color with a strong head that fades quickly. It smells faintly like a floor that has had beer spilled on it a week ago. The taste is tangy sweet with a crapload of carbonation. This beer is an adjunct lager that is cheap and a vehicle for alcohol, not much more.
