look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

A- dark mahogany brown. Small thin head that disappeared quickly. Just about no lacing.

S- clean, light, biscuity.

T- almost nothing going on here. I struggled to identify any character other than feint maltiness (and a tiny bit of sweetness).

M- thin, ultra light bodied, watery.

O- barely even OK. Disappointing. For home consumption? Absolutely not! For mass consumption? Fine (i.e. tailgating, BBQ's), especially if it's hot outside and the beer is ice cold (to help hide its deficiencies).

Cheers!

Definatly not what it used to be. This was my go to beer back in the day. Since then they have gotten more popular and the quality has gone down. It seems more watered down and has that mass produced quality about it.

What a shame, this beer needs a rewind.
