A garbage beer. It smells and tastes like shit.

Handed a 12 oz bottle of this at a local dive bar--probably the best beer they had to offer. No bottled on date. Poured into a frosted pilsner.

L: Pours a crystal clear light straw color with an inch-and-a-half of eggshell head that actually stays for quite a while and leaves moderate cling. Mild visible carbonation.

S: Sour, funky notes in the nose--a bit of cracker malts and pils. Some corn and diacetyl in there, as well.

T: Slightly sour and funky at the front, with those cracker malts underneath. Pils malt notes come through clearer in the middle, along with some grassiness and corn. The close is predominantly corn and the slightest bitter.

F: Light, watery, and just a touch creamy from the carbonation. Finishes quite cleanly.

O: I've had worse adjuncts. This one actually isn't nearly as funky as others that I've tried. It's certainly a beer you can put away easily, but it does leave a lot to be desired.

Can't understand the negative reviews of this beer. Not my favorite but is always in my rotation.

Semi-strong bitter taste, no real "flavour" to it.

Had from tap in Amsterdam. Undoubtedly significant better than the beer imported in the US. Solid cheap lager beer. Sweet aftertaste, otherwise a simple taste. Great feel. I give it a thumbs up

Forced review: Not a bad beer. Had it on tap in Amsterdam before and there was a noticable difference between that and the bottled version in the US. Fresher is better, but either way it doesn't deserve a "poor" rating on BA.

Straw gold with a low quickly dissipating head. Traces of skunk, a little corn, slightly sweet, on the nose. Light grains, moderately low hops, light skunk, light sweetness on the palate. Light to medium light body and above average carbonation.

This beer is more of a nostalgia thing for me. Drank a ton of it while sailing around the Florida Keys when I was younger. I've loved it ever since (only because it reminds me of that trip). Seems to be my go to beer when I'm out to dinner, etc.

Every single time I've had it, its had a distinctive aftertaste. Not exactly "skunk" but not exactly welcomed, either. I only drink it now when I'm stressed out on an airplane.

This is an okay beer if you are just running to the store to grab something. A little watered down in body. Pale strawish color. A small hint of skunky-ness in aroma and flavor.
