Disgusting!!! Vile!!! This is without a doubt the WORST beer I have ever tried!!! I tried a few cans, just to be sure and it was HORRIBLE every single time. At one time, I even gagged a little. Avoid unless you want to see how horrible this beer truly is.

This is what my cat's sweat would taste like if he drank energy drinks all day

A: This has the least color in a beer that I have ever seen. When the "beer" is poured into a glass, it looks like well water. Mostly clear with that slight tint of color. Although it did manage to get a finger and a half to two fingers of head, it faded very quickly.

The can looked nice

S: Not much of a smell. About the only thing that could be smelled was a hint of metal.

T: Absolutely terrible taste of predominantly skunk and metal.

M: Feels like carbonated water.

D: This is undrinkable, I would not even use this for drinking games.

The beers only redeeming factor is that it is 3$. So, maybe if you really want to play a prank on one of your friends...

PROS: Very cheap beer for the buzz - $2.99 a six-pack at Walgreen's, and the artwork on the can is ok.

CONS: The taste and smell makes me want to puke. Seriously, I have a hard time keeping it down. The only way to drink it is to plug your nose and chug it down as fast as possible.

A- Golden
S- I smelled almost nothing, very faint hops
T- Like Keystone Light, In one word Cheap
M- Watery
D- Use for beer pong or a beer bong

While I'm not a fan of this beer if your having a beer pong party this would be the beer to use.It's cheap effective for that purpose.

Purchased a 6-pack for $2.99 at Walgreens. There is no freshness date on the cans, which may explain my very poor review.

A - Extremely translucent with medium carbonation; it looks like an "ultra light" beer. No head whatsoever, even with an aggressive pour.

S - Smells skunked with strong hints of rotten cabbage. I've never smelled a beer this offensive in my life.

T - Absolutely horrendous. The rotten cabbage odor carries into the flavor -- I couldn't finish this beer.

M - Very watery and flat.

Personally, I've never tasted a beer this repulsive in my life. Perhaps the beer was 2-3 years past expiration, but I'm still going to rate it based on my experience with the particular 6-pack I purchased. AVOID.

Appearance - average to good , head drops fast

Smell - mild sweet

Taste- corn, veggie, mild after taste a little sour not smooth

Mouthfeel- mostly after taste is gross

Overall - disappointing, watery bland with weird astringistey.

6 pack @ walgreens are 2.99 ---forget it. Natural light is much better
The brewer should be embarrassed for this contract brew.

12oz can, bought at Walgreen's in Snellville GA @ $3.49 a
6pk. Yes its my birthday today so I said to myself, "Wtf,
might as well"! States that this beer is brewed by
"Brewmasters Choice". Honestly I'd rather trust a product
clearly labeled as a Genesee brew than something Ive
never, ever, ever heard of. Served into my Fischers .4l
tulip (Oh yeeeaaa!!)

I honestly have never smelled a beer like this. I'm wondering if a employee farted in this can before the top was slammed on it.

Now im dreading tasting this stuff. Holy cow! Tastes like water with a punch of rotten veggies, closely following the horrid nose. A slight touch of goat piss, a wee bit of rotten corn husks, and something else thats definatly beyond freshness date.

The worst beer I have ever had. Tastes like someone watered-down a PBR and then threw corn meal into it. I was unable to choke down a single can even after a couple different beers and ended up pouring 10 cans out of a 12 pack down the sink.
