look: 3 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

12oz green bottle into an Italian style pilsner glass.

A- Bright and clean yellowy-gold color, 1+ finger head, no lacing. Lots and lots of big bubbles.

S- It has the Heineken standard issue dirty cat box skunkiness. Very, very unpleasant.

T- It tasted to me like nothing more than wet undecooked white bread.

M- A bit light and crisp, nothing really. It's just so hard to get past the nose.

O- This was my only choice at a friend's house today. Otherwise, I may never have drank this beer. I did not finish the entire serving but it was easy to read.

4.16/5  rDev +80.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a very crisp looking clear golden color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin, but nice lacing.

Smell - Has a pleasantly strong skunky aroma that pretty much dominates everything else. Grains and bread are the only other detectable aromas.

Taste - Not as skunky as the aroma but it's still good. Fairly sweet with a slight corn flavor, plus grains and bread. It has minimal bitterness from the hops.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.. Very crisp

Overall - Very easy to drink on. Would be great for the summer.
