Pours a pale straw color with one of the flimsiest, bright-white heads around that dissipates quick and reduces to a barely noticeable ring within seconds. Nose is grainy, metallic, and slightly skunky. Who would have thought, given the green bottles? My palate is picking up a grainy backbone with an astringent, off-putting bitterness that doesn't contain much hop aroma or flavor, just a chalky bitterness that crushes the grain profile. Thin, clean, crisp finish with maybe a hint of grapes or apple skins in the final touch, but it's barely enough to save this one. The metallic flavor becomes more noticeable near the end of the brew, kind of like a heavy copper-ish smell and taste. The body is thinner than thin and the carbonation is relatively high.
Bleh, I'm not a fan of this one at all. Hated this when I first tried it, long ago. Tried it again thinking maybe I was just inexperienced earlier - still don't care for it.

Pours a clear golden, straw color with a 2 finger head that dissipates quickly in a 16oz pub glass leaving little lacing.
Smell is pretty decent. I get the malts with a slight skunkyness. Reminds me a lot of a corona or a modelo or something similar.
Taste is pretty much the same. I get the skunkyness with the malts and a little bit of bitterness at the end.
Mouthfell is a little watery but not too bad.
Overall, a good beer in my opinion. Would be a good one to have while setting by the pool or on the beach. Really refreshing.
