What is really funny is that for some years now i have been drinking this beer and within the last year or so i have been getting really into craft beers and visiting local breweries enjoying excellent beer. Having doing this i don't think i can really go back to this beer if i really tried!. It really just seems to taste like carbonated water to me. Having said this i will go ahead and rate this beer.

It pours a bright, clear golden yellow color. Lots of bubbles shooting to the top. The head doesn't really stick around. There is a very very slight malt and hop aroma to it and really isn't too
impressive. The taste is like a mentioned before which is very carbonated and very watery.

It is really hard for me to absolutely hate this beer having pretty much drank it most of my adult life but now having tasted so many excellent and shall i say "real" beers. This one is definitely at the bottom for me.
