355ml stubby poured into a pilsener glass.
Pours with an extremely fizzy head that only sticks around because of the violent carbonation. If the head stuck around it would be a very good looking beer. As it is, it's not bad in the pilsener glass. THe smell is were things get a bit rough though, with aromas of cooked veggies and skunky corn. Just very cheap smelling. A bit of yeastiness in the background, and some faint aroma hops as well.
Taste is sharp on the tongue at first, with an unpleasant metallic acidity, then ooh baby, those adjuncts really start to make their funky way acoss the palate, and it's all downhill. A cloying sweetness develops as the glass warms. A bit of dryness in the finish, but mostly this one just seems watery and bland. Drinkable, but only if you were using a beer bong and weren't obligated to taste it.
