Fairly heavy body a little dry lots of malt, but the skunkiness and the "rusty pipes" after taste still lingers with me to this day.
It does its job as what its intended to be an alcohol delivery system. Its got to be ice cold or its nasty. I like its little brother southpaw better.

First review, figured I should do it on my most recent beer I had, and I gotta say, this is probably the number one on what I call my "Shit beer list." For just a few bucks and to get this kind of beer, going in with low expectations, it isn't bad.

A: Pale straw color. Impressive 4-finger head with little retention.

S: The weak point; musty and corny. Not awful smelling, but certainly not appealing.

T: Decent amount of hops with a stale corn after-taste, but if you're chugging it, it doesn't really matter.

M: Extremely light, but in terms of an adjunct, better than most.

O: Best "Shit beer." If I need beer and I got a few bucks, my money is on this.
