A strong contender for the worst beer I've ever had.

To start, the smell is pretty indicative of what you got. A funky, slightly dirty smell is really overpowering before you ever take a drink.

The mouthfeel is way too carbonated, enough to make it really unpleasant. A dirty, kinda nutty taste to it, accompanied with the worst aftertaste ever. Every drink made me want to vomit, and I can't imagine ever wanting to drink this again.

Thank God it was free for winning a round of trivia. Would never recommend this to anyone.

First had: probably back in high school, stolen from a friend's dad's fridge or something.

Well, it's better than Coors Light anyway. Poured a clear, reddish-amber, carbonated, and a small white head. Sweet malty aroma...not much else to speak of. Light, sweet taste, malts, burnt sugar, bitter, and pretty weak. Light, watery body, stale, and a bitter aftertaste. Drinkable if you want drink whole cases at a time and get wasted. Otherwise, avoid this one.
