Ahh the "dirty 4-0", a party classic around these parts.

Pours the standard pee yellow with a one finger bubbly white head that disipates quickly. Looks to be extremely carbonated.

Can't really detect anything in the smell, I guess grainy would be best to describe.

Tastes grainy like the smell but also bitter. Only thing good about it is that the 8%abv hides itself well. Becomes a whole lot worse as it warms

As it looks, it feels very carbonated. Definatly needs to be sipped, no big gulps.

Not impressed, but didn't expect to be. It is what it is. Maybe I'll consider this if I become homeless, but until then, I'll leave it on the store shelf where it belongs.
