Pours a pale gold color with very loose, soap-like head that quickly fades. The nose has an apple-like sweetness to it as well as some metallic notes. The taste is just like the smell; sweet apples, grainy, metal. The mouthfeel is very light, overly carbonated, and somewhat dry.

I hadn't had one since college, but I was drinking out of my father-in-laws fridge. It's basically a haven any and all macros so I figured I'd run through as many different ones as I could since it was free. I would never buy this now.

look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Bottom of can stamped 28OCT11. Identical to the bottled version.

Appearance - Ultra clear pale straw body. Thin white lace with no retention and minimal stick.

Smell - Very mild hop. A bit more than you'd get from Bud Light, but not very much. Dry and musky.

Taste - Stale bubble gum that lost its sweetness. Mild cardboard hop and slight alcoholic astringency.

Mouthfeel - Almost no effervescence; flat. Light bodied. Kinda sticky.

Overall Drinkability - Nothing particularly offensive, but almost completely character-less.
