I wonder if I had a skunked can of beer? I was surprised in that most (all?) BA reviews had Zaison rated much better than I thought it was.

It poured flat, very little carbonation. Lacing quickly dissipated. Golden yellow color, slightly hazy.

Smell was sweet, the only scent I could clearly place was grapefruit.

It had strong stale-sweet taste and an almost 'chewey' mouth feel.

This beer was about as poor tasting as it could be for me to finish, any worse and it would have been poured down the drain. I would only try it again to see if maybe I did have a can that was old, it had no date.
