It's very much like a Coors with some dark malt thrown in for color which also adds only a hint of flavor. Overall I found this to be pretty bland and uninteresting but not offensive in the least. DMS came through a little on the finish. Surprisingly not skunked despite the green bottle.

From notes at Old Chicago (2002: Pours cola-esque into the glass. Mine had almost no head nor lacing. Aromas are somewhat sour and hops. The body of this beer grows/builds through the finish, as initial flavors are a bit dry. I pick up lightly roasted notes, with increasing bitterness. Hops continue in the finish even after the pull has concluded. Honestly, since the brew doesn't come to fruition until much later, the body initially feel thin, due to a (possible) overcarbonated, watery contingency. Thus, this leaves a highly mediocre impression. Not terrible, but overall, just middle of the road.
