Pours a small one finger white head that I can head fizzing away, which is not good, the body is a dark yellow color, with medium carbonation and almost 100% transparent, but not completely. Here are my first thoughts, the head is gone, and I can tell I'm not going to get much lacing, so that's bad. But on the other hand there isn't a crap load of carbonation and the color isn't as light yellow as most of the adjunct lagers I've had, so that kinda offsets things a little bit. The smell is a little hoppy and a little malty, frankly it smells a little skunky, but maybe that's just the hops, because it's in a can so theres no way it's skunky. I mean overall the smell is very faint, and not very strong, but what I can smell I like, it smells like it has some taste to it, so not bad on the smell for an adjunct lager. Extremely watery on the taste, like WOW, super watery, I was expecting much more flavor out of that smell. I'm for sure getting a metallic flavor and a almost a cough syrup taste mixed in with the low carbonation. The taste is not very good at all, I'm really not getting any hops or malts either here. It really just tastes like metallicy cough syrupy water. On second thought, there might be a small small hop bite in here somewhere. The only two things I can think so say that are good about the taste are the small hop bite and the fact that it's not skunky like I thought it might be on the smell. I was really expecting more flavor from this beer, but it's falling very short, even for an adjunct lager. The mouthfeel is ok, not terrible, medium carbonation, but frankly it could actually use a bit more carbonation because the flavor isn't all that great. Drinkability is considerably low considering it's an adjunct lager. Overall on this beer, way worse than I was expecting, and I wasn't expecting all that much from it, being an adjunct lager. I have absolutely no idea how the bros give this a B-. There are a few things I like about it, but very few, mostly this beer is not very good at all.
