look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A - Bronze caramel color with a frothy white head that doesn't last.

S - Smells of rice and very light malt.

T - Boring malt with a bit of, is that tin? There is no real way to convey this but it tastes like half beer, half pool water.

M - Watery and fizzy but drinkable.

O - I really don't like the taste of this beer. It's drinkable, especially straight from the bottle, but there are so many better choices for the same price.

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

Appearance: medium brown, similar to Coca-Cola. No head, no lacing, virtually no carbonation. Pathetic.

Smell: Watered down Coca-Cola.

Taste: A pint of water with 10 honeysuckles in it,a drop of caramel flavored syrup, and one shredded metal bottle cap.

Mouthfeel: Water

This beer is horribly unimpressive and boring but at least it's not offensive.
