I am going to review this beer and be constructive, but let the record show that this is perhaps the worst beer I have ever had in my entire life. On to the constructive critiques:

A: Very pale yellow with a one-finger head. Died quickly with no retention.

S: Musky, skunky smell of stale grains.

T: The smell translated to the flavor; LOTS of stale grain and very watery.

M: Extremely light, silky smooth.

O: I got this in a "Build your own six-pack" special, and even with low expectations I did not enjoy this one bit. It was like a mexican pissed into a glass bottle, filled the rest with water, froze it, and shipped it to my liquor store. If given this beer for free, I would actually refuse. It tasted as bad as it smelled with its musk and watery smell, and nothing set this beer apart from other adjuncts. I apologize if this was a slammer, but I honestly have nothing positive to say about this beer and felt my review should show my honesty.
