I do not know much about the "snobbish" beer stuff, mouthfeel? I know if its wet and if it stinks and if it tastes like the liquid at the bottom of my garbage can.

With that said, this could be worse. I had a bad experience with a 12 pack of "Game Day" beer last week. Was drinkable enough cause I wanted to get drunk, but I spent a lot of time the next day on the toilet. Might have been the Chicken Massala I had with it tho.

This at least, behaves a lot better, its got a better taste - or lack of taste is prolly better for an ice beer like this.

I love good beers, I love to get a good buzz. My budget at this point means I look for the quantity over quality sadly, and this works - OK for now.

For the fact it does not taste horrible I will mark it down like many others, as something to get a buzz on but at least drinkable to a degree. I cannot wait till I can afford better beer again.

"APR0912" printed on the bottom of the 24 oz. can. $1.49

Poured into a mug. Straw colored urine color, bright clarity, thin flimsy head that fades immediately to nothing. Rapidly rising column of carbonation, yet strangely there's no head at all.

Bland aroma, toasted popcorn kernels, wet grains.

Tastes like wet paper, white bread, a vague inkling of grassy hop bitterness. Ghostly aftertaste of malt, but it's more like stale bread. Clean aftertaste, a little dry, but no alcohol presence. Overall bland but not offensive, thin bodied with a medium carbonation level. Best served super cold in warm weather, then it's drinkable. Not the worst of the worst, to be sure.

KEYSTONE TO DA DOME!

Apparently just opening the can has resurrective properties. Gonna have to try this tomorrow with the inevitable hangover this beer will cause...
