I'm reviewing this for a friend.

A: Pours a clear slightly gold color with a fizzy, fizzy head that dies down to a couple centimeters of head. Leaves no lacing. Has bubbles rising to the top.

S: Vegetable smells with a little bit of metallic edge. VERY little aroma. A little very light pils malt. skunky.

T/M: Taste has more body. Has a decent malt core, but very little hopping at all, though I didnt expect it. Carbonation actually isnt too bad, just enough that it tingles a little over the palate but it goes down smooth and is 'drinkable' (haha). A little bit of sugary/corn meal sweetness. not complex in flavor at all, but thats not what the beer is about. Has a little bit of sweet bread in the malt profile and thats about it. Finishes watery and without a lingering aftertaste whatsoever.

Overall its a drinkable beer good mostly only for super hot days outside or for drinking easily in bulk. Not as caustic on the palate as most reviews suggest.

Not a good beer. Has a bland flavor and feels like it is water with a little beer added to it. Not a good beer to sit and enjoy. About the only thing it is good for was back in the college days using it for beer pong, or beer bonging it. Girls seem to love the stuff, but I guess that is because it is like water.
