I had this once some time ago and remember being very unimpressed. I couldn't remember why, so I gave it another shot. Same reaction, and now I know why: it simply sucks all around. Many comparisons have been drawn to Killian's, but I would much rather pick Killian's any day over this. Maybe I had a bad bottle (twice though?), but this is horrible beer. If I'm at someone's house and all they have is Bud or Coors Light or something, I will drink it, although I never buy it. However, choosing between macro and this, I will choose macro. This is absolutely avoidable.
