"Average analysis per 12 fl. oz.: 0g fat, 96 calories, 0.5g protein, 3.4g carbs"

Into a stange glass it pours a dirty pale yellow with chunky suspended sediment. Looks like hazy yellowish dishwater to be honest.

Smells like artificially sweet fruit cocktail in a can, with a hint of honey and soggy wet bread. Tastes about the same, some light maltiness, astringent twang, dry wet paper aftertaste. Watery and a bit astringent. This is not something i'd ever drink again. Apparently not retired, but it should be :(

Reviewed from notes.

A. Lightly clouded pale yellow, no head or lacing to speak of.

S. Medium levels of skunk and cardboard over sugary syrup aroma.

T. Oddly sweet-n-sour, strident astringency. Also contains the same skunked qualities as the nose.

M. Thinner body with not enough carbonation.

Not a great beer.

Cloudy straw color with a thin, white head that fades quickly.
Smell is very light malts, with some faint orange and lemon peel notes.
Taste is light malts, with some very faint hops. Very faint notes of citrus, as well as some faint corny notes.
Mouthfeel is smooth, with a surprisingly low level of carbonation for this style. Clean finish, and a light body.
Drinkability is good. All-around unexciting beer, but one I'd take over a Bud Light or Michelob Golden Light any day.
