There aren't many beers that I am nervous to try, but this may be one of them. It had a questionable appearance straight from the start, with a sloppy bottling job around the mouth of the bottle. Poured into a glass, it was quite bland looking. A boring light yellow color and no head.. Smell was nonexistent and flavor was stale, funky, soured water. Really no other discernible flavors, other than the alcohol which couldn't be covered up due to the lack of flavor. Mouth feel was that of water.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

Would give this a zero if I could. I am not exaggerating when I say that this tastes like Corona Extra and smells like a wet dog. I don't know how this aroma was produced from a beer, but it is awfully unpleasant.
