There are so many worse examples, but this is still a pretty bland beer.

12oz Bottle pour into a Pint Glass.
I decided to give it a try, because I thought the label was interesting.

Appearance: Regular light yellow lager beer color with low foam

Smell: Just a bitter sour grassy metallic smell; not something to Oooh and ahhh over.

Taste: I don't want to taste it ever again. I never tasted a hint of good in it at all. Overall it was a confusing experience.

Mouthfeel: Medium-low carbonation; much less than regular lagers.

Drinkability: The label should have a skunk on it, not a pretty bird. It's so strong but not in a good way. I couldn't even finish it so I poured it out down the drain, and then grabbed something else quickly to refresh my dying taste buds.

I grabbed only one of these at my local liquor store where you can awesomely make your own 6-pack. I was excited to try something new and out of the ordinary. I thought it might be tasty in likeness of a Stella or maybe some other familiar green bottle beer like Moosehead. I was wrong and I won't ever try it again!
