Had not ever seen this on tap before, and so made the mistake of ordering a glass at SFO (instead of anchor steam, which I clearly should have gotten).

The beer pours a fairly bright gold color with minimal head and no lacing. While the beer isn't as nasty looking as bud lite, it's in the running for worst looking beer ever. The nose is nearly as unimpressive, as I get light honey, canned corn and something of a seltzer water aroma (never a good sign). The flavor profile is a bit better, but not by much. There's a hint of bitterness in the finish, that helps to buoy the crappy sweet corn flavor. Otherwise, this beer is pretty watery, and I quickly start to get that gassy, slightly bloated feeling I so often experience in a glass of macro swill. Mouthfeel is very light, though there's no real off flavors, thankfully. As for drinkability, is there alcohol in this crap?

For some reason I have something of a nostalgic feeling for this beer, having drunk quite a few bottles of it in Mazatlan many years ago. However, my glass at the airport has cured that feeling forever, and I'm pretty sure I won't be ordering this swill ever again.

This a very poor beer...

Poured chilled into insulated ellipse glass

A: clear yellow; modest carbonation; head dissipates quickly
S: stale, sickly smell
T: stale, flavorless beer; thin body, thin flavor, very forgettable; at least it doesn't cloy or wrap into a metallic taste
