Bought a single bottle, and poured it in my ceramic beer mug. It's a very pale straw color with a fluffy white head that dissipates rather quickly. I noticed the aroma that others commented about, but wouldn't say it's skunky. It reminds me of Heineken or Pilsner Urquell, and I suspect it's just the variety of hops they used for bittering, and none of it really comes through in the flavor. Overall, this is a very drinkable lager that comes in a fun bottle. I'm not sure I'd stock it, but I might order it if I'm feeling like beer at the Asian restaurant in Marquette (as they serve it by the bottle.)

Not bad for what it is. I bought a twelve pack of cans from an international food market nearby. I don't generally drink this kind of beer, but I thought I'd give it a try. I believe that beer, especially imported beers should be bought canned as often as possible; bottling in my opinion raises the risk of fouling the taste. Probably not worth 15.99 per twelve pack, but I can mark it off my list, and give it a better rating than most others have, though most others fell for the "cool" (though probably skunky) bottled version.

Pours very clear. smells off as other suggest. typical beer taste. Nothing special here other than the very unique bottle for sure. Could see this one popular with the College crowd ;-)

Slight skunk on the nose, but honestly not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Acceptable for a lawnmower beer I reckon, but the bottle is still the best thing about this

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Poured from a green buddha shaped bottle. You know from the bottle color what this is going to smell like and the skunk bursts from the bottle on opening, big time. Pours a light to medium golden amber with aone finger white head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat sour grainy malt and skunk. There are hints of light adjunct malt in there, but they are nearly masked. Flavor is better, typical international adjunct lager mild, sweet malt with a hint of grassy hops, very attenuated, light flavor that is actually better in the finish, where light adjunct malt is present into a slightly tart, ligthly grassy hop conclusion. Medium bodied with slight creaminess. Well the bottle is inviting and makes me want to like this despite all, but sadly, this is a really poorly made beer. The flavor is lighter and less interesting than any adjunct lager I've ever had. It is actually puzzling how this could be so skunked when the hops are as light as they are (isn't it an interaction of the hops with light?). Adjunct lagers are designed to be innocuous and harmless and this one is that, but very forgettable.
