God awful brewski. If you want a headache and the shits, this is the beer for you. Only suitable for your guests whom you want to get rid of, or get even with. This is NOT the 'Nectar of the Gods'. I've been throwin' 'em down the hatch for many years, and this has got to be right up their with worst.

Pours a slightly golden color with a thin lace of head. Slightly sweet adjunct aromas. Not much taste, but not really any adjunct flavor either. Goes down quite smooth, slightly dry. I reviewed this poured in a glass, but I'm giving this a 5 for overall, because for some reason it's much better out of the can and it's the only good macro/adjunct beer I like.

Flashback #213 - Beverage of choice in my early drinking years, always had a soft spot for it and it drinks well too.

Not terrible; less sweet than typical BMC swill. Still certainly hop-barren and slightly over-sweet, but pretty drinkable. The drinkable but almost full mouthfeel is actually one if this beer's best qualities.
