Bitter, foul, and completely unrewarding.

An extremely obnoxious brew. way overpowered on flavor and alcohol content. The alcohol content alone will give this brew many tall reviews, but if your looking for drinkability this is not your beer. This is definitely an aquired taste. Hair on the chest types? haha

Drank it in a Bottle
Appearance yellowish brown hint.
Don't remember the smell.
Too tart for my taste.
You could drink pretty many.
Overall I think this beer company gets way too much attention for something that doesn't taste very good by beer standards.

Malty overproduced swill IMO, why is this rated so high? Couldnt find any Centennial 15 packs so had to settle with this on a budget, only 1 month old but tastes way older IMO. I think that this beer sucks, as classic and old school as it may be.
