It looks like beer, but it tastes like liquid cardboard. I have no idea why so many people choose this over the many better (and cheaper) alternatives.

Sampled back on St. Patrick's Day on 3/17/15. but like most of us, who hasn't drank this? LOL! Come to find out that I have NEVER done a review on this one so here it goes. Anyway, came in a neat 'Limited Edition' 16 ounce green 'St. Patrick's Day' aluminum bottle with shamrocks. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage Anhesuer-Busch pislner glass.

Brew pours a pale straw-yellow in color with a pretty thin white cap. Some sheets of spotty lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is really nothing to mention, just some light grassy grains. The taste is pretty much the same. Very watered down with not much taste. Ends with a slight metallic taste which might or might not be from the aluminum bottle. Light-bodied with above average carbonation. Why I drank some of these over the years before I discovered some good brews and brew-styles is beyond me. Overall. why bother to drink this, no matter what fancy/cool bottle they use. This is a below average brew in my opinion.

It's a very flavorless beer that you straight up shouldn't drink.

Bland, taste like water with a little bit of hop in it. Felt nauseous when I drank it, coupled with the taste of rotten wheat in my mouth.
