It tastes, smells, and looks like bud light -- not at all what you would expect at a brew pub in Chicago -- all with extra carbonation that makes for an awful mouthfeel. My as well go somewhere down the street for a $2 bottle of Budweiser. How has this seriously won multiple awards?

Hey, do you like smarties? This tastes like the banana one! I for one, don't so I very much did not like this beer. There something about throwing that taste upon hops that just doesn't work. I know that it comes from part of the grain but it needs to be complimented and not challenged
