Aweful. Maybe it deserves a better rating.... This is not my style of beer, but sometimes even styles one doesn't care for end up being somewhat enjoyable. Not this.

Used to love this beer, but recently it hasn't been doing it for me. As strange as this may sound, the taste reminds me of how band aids smell...
