Keith Stone...the smoothest of beers. I gotta say, the first time I saw those commercials I laughed pretty hard. I also laughed pretty hard when I drank this, because its' so terrible. But I tied one on pretty good the other night and took noted on all the different beers I drank, so I could later review them!

A - Super pale yellow, almost transparent pour from the can into a mug. No head, no lacing, a lot of bubbles...probably going to be super-carbonated.

S - Metallic yeast. A combination of a bar floor and a machine shop

T - Nothing at all. Cold carbonated water with just a touch of yeast in there.

M - Finished nice and crisp, good level of carbonation makes it almost bearable.

O - Again, much like the other macros, good for a shotgun party, beer pong, frat house, etc. The commercials are still humorous.

Not much of an appearance with about a 1" head that quickly disappears. Smells like watered down...water beer. Taste like a normal american pilsner which lacks much flavor or imagination. Really crisp and tastes pretty much how it smells and looks. Let's face it, this is a drinking game beer so leave it for the tailgates or beer pong. Unless of course it's free, then the "free beer" rule applies. I stay as far away from this as possible.

This is some cheap shit, some light shit. Poured into my Red Wings pint glass on the eve of their NHL record-setting 21st straight home win.

Really, really light. Less golden than a PBR or Miller Light: really light straw. Transparent. There's no head, save for the huge and noisy one that lasts for about 10 seconds after the initial can-dump. A column of soda-like, quick-moving bubbles persists through the whole beer.

Smells like apple juice with aluminum shavings in it

Tastes the same, but with such little intensity of flavor that it is SLAMMABLE, especially considering the refreshing pop of the super-carbonation. The bigger the gulp the more enjoyable (this theory applies all the way to the 12oz-shotgun level. No small sips.)

I've had this beer on-tap, bottled, and in cans...and it still always manages to taste like metal and a blurry night.

A - Pale yellow with no head

S - It just smells like a bar after closing -- yeasty and a little malty

T - Virtually nothing. It's neither bitter nor sweet, but just leaves an odd starchy aftertaste

M - Carbonation is good in the beginning but goes away quickly

O - If you're in the need of a beer for a case race or shot-gunning you've found what you're looking for....but other than that, meh.
