Enjoyable and refreshing beer for everyman and the first step into the Euro import market. Much better than any American Adjuncts but pales in comparison to its pilsner competitors.

So skunky, I've tried it half a dozen times - just bad. I've heard it's totally different fresh?

A throwback from the past, this one usually has a skunky smell that greets you once you pop the cap....built for college kids...this is just a watery mess that somehow has a massive advertising budget to keep it afloat

It an OK beer. But why pay more for this when you can drink Bud or Coors for cheaper?

Good lager that's often skunky. Better in the canned version and always stands out with its German malt flavor.
