1.25/5 rDev -55.2%
Appearance Yellow with an orangish tinge and a medium-sized head that disappeared without a trace in seconds.
Smell I cant really make out this one. It smells vegetal. Whatever it is, its not beer.
Taste This is definitely not to my liking. I cant pick out any typical beer flavors like hops, malts, grain, or sweetness of any kind. Its almost like drinking pureed cauliflour or lawn grass. Its not skunked, though. I just cant figure out what they put in it.
Mouthfeel The carbonation isnt bad, but Im going to be apologizing to my tongue for weeks.
Drinkability You could sell this at a stand in the middle of the Sahara desert and wounded, sick, emaciated, nomads would walk right by it. But, it sells like crazy so what do I know.
Comments I hate to offer nothing constructive, and I know some of the other BAs found things to like about it, but I just cant write anything in all honesty even remotely favorable about this especial brew. I thought it estunk.

2.9/5 rDev +3.9%
Offered from a friend at a camp ground pool
Poured into a solo cup
Smells of corn and grass
Taste is the typical adjunct lager. Better than your average light lager. Has some pilsner character.
Light bodied and dry. Not bad for a summer day
Would grab this over a light beer. Not too bad.
