2.5/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a flare pilsner glass. Standard transparent gold, no head, no lace.

Essentially no aroma, although I do pick up something faintly metallic.

Very clean, very light. Not an abundance of flavor to say the least. I can almost taste a bit of bready grain, but no hops.

It goes down deceptively easy. I know that sounds dumb given the review so far, but even compared to similar beers it's just quite drinkable.

This stuff sells for $10 a case, and it's better than the usual suspects of junk beer, plus it's fairly local for me. Factoring the price the stuff is amazing. As an added little bonus the inside of each bottle cap contains a rebus puzzle (they get harder the more you drink).

Just the opposite of most people on this one. Tried it out of a bottle on several occasions, and every time tasted very flat. Bought a 6 Pack of cans for $3.99, and well I think it actually tasted a lot better. For the record: I DO NOT LIKE DRINKING BEER OUT OF A CAN! But this one on the other hand, wasn't too damn bad. The ultimate local budget beer in the PA, DE, NJ area, you really can't go wrong on this one.
