Sampled earlier this evening on 9/13/14 and had this once a few years back. Used to be made in Germany but now made by Budweiser in St. Louis, Missouri. 12 ounce bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 'Beck's vintage handled glass stein.

Pours a medium / darker amber in color with a thin off-white head. Really no lacing to mention. The aroma is of just some malts, nothing special really. The taste is about the same with some bread (yeast) in the mix as well. A bit 'watery' though. Lighter bodied with medium carbonation as would be excepted from a 'Bud" product. Overall, it was OK.

A: The beer is crystal clear coppery amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of skunk are present in the nose along some notes of malts.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that skunk is a little more subdued as there are light notes of biscuit and toasted malts. Faint amounts of bitterness are also perceptible.
M: It feels light-to medium-bodied and a little watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, but the skunk aromas and flavors might be a causality of the green bottle this came in.

Drinkable? Sure.

Flavorful? Not much.

Looks nice in the glass though.

Found this one a little boring in taste, a tad watery and a metallic taste which was a tad off putting.
