24 fl oz can served into a nonical Guinness pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are as low as can be.

Served from the refrigerator. Side-poured vigorously as I anticipated the head wouldn't retain. Even the aggressive pour didn't seem to help much. I wonder if it'd have a head at all without aggressive pouring.

Acquired at a local Ralph's market.

A: Pours a two finger pathetic thin head of no cream whatsoever and abysmal retention. Colour is an unappealing straw yellow. I'd stop short of calling it "urine" coloured, but I had to hesitate. It retains all of 30 seconds - but this might be a good thing because the head was just sad. No yeast particles are visible.

Sm: Artificial lime syrup and heavy sugar. Smells like an awful over-sweetened children's candy. Uniquely repugnant; Budweiser has done it again. I wouldn't call it foul, but it's definitely off-putting to an obscene extent. Pretty strong. No yeast or alcohol comes through, mainly because it can't compete with the crappy lime. "100% natural lime flavour" me arse.

T: Artificial lime, with unwelcome sweetness on the climax. It's backed by a stale dirty barley foundation, which feels weak and pathetic. Watery. That lime is true garbage, and really bothers. Way too sweet. I want to brush my teeth merely from the sugar of the beer. Laughably simple, awfully balanced, and poorly built.

Mf: Overcarbonated. Coarse from the sugary sweetness. Too thick. Wet. Pretty bad all around. Doesn't suit the flavours really at all. Syrupy.

Dr: 24 oz was a struggle to finish. I would never even consider having this again unless a bar had no other affordable options on draught and I was looking to get destroyed. Awful for the style, and hardly a beer. A reprehensibly bad concoction.
