1.35/5  rDev -54.7%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Pours a pale yellow gold. Half inch frothy head. Very fizzy. Smell is sour, yet sweet. Quite bitter nose.

Taste is sweet malt, lightly bitter, sour finish with metallic flavors mixed in. All this is quite unpleasant. A crisp and clean finish. I usually drink this out of a bottle if I find myself in FL with no better option and that's the way it should remain. If you can actually smell and taste it in the glass, it's brutal. No thanks.

2.05/5  rDev -31.2%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Got a bottle from a salesman for free and figured I'd review it. Thin yellow with no head after the pour. I couldn't smell anything really on the nose. The taste was mostly rice with a bite at the finish that wasn't very refreshing. The mouthfeel was thin and too heavily carbonated. Not for me.
