Sorry, this beer rates just below your run of the mill domestic mass produced brew that most of America beer drinkers find as normal beer. The head of one finger dissipated about as fast as it appeared, leaving nothing. The color is that of my morning "dew". Rating a 4 on the SRM beer color chart. The smell is very light and that of what I remember walking out in the barnyard in the morning as a child. The taste is about one step above water, some corn and malt, but nothing else. No mouth feel, no body, no zing, no pop. Maybe this is just a bad bottle. I am sorry to say, I will try to avoid this unless I must drink it to not hurt somebody's feelings.

Serving type: bottle

This was legitimately the worst beer I've ever had.

Appearance: average adjunct. I like the appearance, but it's nothing special.

Smell: Some funk going on, but it doesn't warn me about what's going to happen when I actually taste it.

Taste: Worst taste ever. The aftertaste tastes the way burnt plastic smells. I have no idea how this taste got into the beer, but it's awful.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, but not actively offensive.

Overall: Terrible, terrible beer. I'm more than willing to tolerate an adjunct lager, but not this.

Serving type: bottle
