pale yellow colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, grain and hops. Dry sweet taste with lightly bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Thin body and average carbonation. Decent pale lager.

Good lager, not the greatest

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Look: That unfortunate depth of straw color that looks exactly like urine. Thin head that dissipates very fast.

Smell: Like a roadkilled skunk. Absolutely terrible. I was about ready to give up on it after that first whiff.

Taste: BUT if do overlook those two aspects, it actually tastes just fine. A pretty solid lager, maybe the quality of Yuengling . Moderately hopped, not much other flavors going on.

Feel: And it falls apart again. feels really slick and thick. Lack of carbonation here.

Overall: I'd have it if you gave it to me. But I'd never buy it again.

A good looking and good smelling beer but too light for my taste.

A standard lager, but can be elevated greatly depending on how it is poured and presented.

Good enough. When faced with this or Heineken as my only two options, I chose this over and over. Meaning it tastes better and it also drinkable, over and over.

It was my first beer that I actually liked so It will always be my favorite, even though it isn't necessarily "the best". But I'd recommend it to anyone!

A very hyped beer for some reason. Price it like it tastes and it's just fine, but for some reason it's often priced like a premiu beer, which it isn't. At all.

I wanted to see if this beer's reputation and price matched it's quality. I poured this into a pint glass, vigorously so as to evoke the fluffy white head.

Look: The head was fluffy and pure white, which was not only pleasing to the eye but a pleasure to dip my upper lip in. The appearance was a light golden-straw color, rich in carbonation which clung to all sides of the glass.

Smell: The smell is delightful for a cannabis enthusiast like me with a potent musky-skunk aroma that gave way to milled grain and sweet malt. The dank facet of the aroma is likely due to the light green glass of the bottle which allows light to permeate the beer.

Taste: Mild and thirst quenching taste that reminds me of corn husks, dry grains, and the delicate flavor of green tea. The minuscule hop profile is grassy, sharp, and sweet.

Feel: Light-bodied, crisp and dry with thirst quenching properties. It is definitely a good beer for a hot day.

Overall: This beer tastes too much like Heineken for me to call it craft quality, but does have a lot going for it in terms of drinkability and some depth of character. If I had the choice, however, I would go for a Saison like Colette by Great Divide. Not worth the price for me.

Great skunky lager! Awesome when consumed freezing cold on a hot day. Not for the beer snobs but great for the heat!

Not bad when it's on tap, without the bottle skunk. Pale golden yellow color. Slight malt taste, grassy hops. Light, watery and refreshing. Overrated, yes, but still OK.

best beer to do bombs in. A solid overall beer. Lacks a little taste, stays a little watered down. Good feel and crisp though.

This is the most over hyped beer on the market. Not sure why I'm wasting my time reviewing this beer because it is what it is. Just bugs me how many incredible beers there are right now and people drink this swill because of the name.

Look, we are in a beer renaissance and this needs to be sent back to 1999. Harsh, maybe.

Smells like grains and slightly skunky. Tastes a little like corn and malt. Not much hop presence. Light texture and highly carbonated.

Strong musty lager yeast smell - very light taste of caramel malt and a hint of lingering hops. Not bad for mass production.
