Pours somewhere between a shade of amber and gold. Some foamy head that dissipates quickly. Smells a bit like a Budweiser, tastes a little bit better. A little bit of light malt. Can't complain. Cool ass bottle.

To start, I am a collector of all different types of bottles, so the look of this bottle drew me in as something to keep when I was finished with the beer, regardless of whether or not I liked it. Now onto the important part.

A: Plain, with a pale peach colour. Similar to what Coors or Bud Light looks like.

S: Neutral. Nothing special. Has the smell of stale Cheerios.

T: Surprisingly, this beer is tasty! Has a sweet taste to start, followed by what I would describe as freshly made bread. Nothing too harsh with this beer at all.

F: Has a thick swallow to it. Light carbonation, but enough to give you the refreshing burn. Has great drinkability, as once you are done with a sip, you want to go for another!

Overall, I would say this beer is quite refreshing, and can be drank at anytime of the day. I wouldn't get drunk on this beer, but is a great beer to have around, plus you get a cool bottle!

A pale yellow color with a one finger white fizzy head with poor retention. The beer is clear with good carbonation.

N: A slight skunky aroma, bread, yeast, corn, hay, and a some floral,

T: Skunky, yeasty, corn, hay, and some toasted crackers.

M: Carbonated, and light body.

O: Not a very good beer it does have a cool looking bottle.

From the intriguing bottle, it pours a clear golden amber with a nice head, dissipating to a thin layer as you slowly drink it. Initial funky adjunct scent as the bottle was opened, followed by a more pleasant smell as you enjoy it. Light malty flavor. Better than I expected overall.
