Well, someone else described the taste of this swill as "old sweat socks" and I have to agree. Nasty.

Meh. I can see how it appeals to the masses, but I find it pretty below average.

This was the beer I moved on to after starting out on the cheap macro brews. It's a good to stepping stone to the craft beer world.

This is pretty good. Nice biscuity breadiness to it. Smell isn't very impressive, but the taste is on point. I could easily drink several of these in a session. Would buy again.
