My friends left a couple of these in the fridge so I thought I’d review one for shits and giggles.

Pours a sickeningly bright but translucent hue of yellow, almost like some champagne. Head seemed good at first but lost its mojo pretty fast. Smells like a kegger. Actually, it’s not an entirely unpleasing smell in small doses. But it certainly doesn’t smell like a hearty, delicious brew. Tastes like stale bread. After first taste the nose becomes almost un-detectable. Citrus quality is observed. Aftertaste is most unpleasant. Also, it’s a very watery brew. Not sure if this is a legitimately observed taste or not, but a flavor of bile was definitely noted in the back of the throat. It made me scrunch up my face with the first taste. Perhaps I’m just recalling youthful nights of overindulgence. Don’t drink beers like this.
