For the price, this beer actually isn't too bad. At the price point, I think it is better than Keystone or Natural Ice. Smell was a little off putting at first, but it's pretty drinkable. If it didn't have a subtle sweet taste I probably would have rated it higher. It was 3.99 for a 12 pack, so to me, this is worth it.

I've had a lot of the BMC and their offspring, but this is by far the worst beer I've ever had. Makes sense considering it was $5 for a 12 pack. Maybe what I had was sitting on a shelf for too long, but it was foul, which is weird because regular PBR is actually serviceable for a cheap buy.
