It pours a light golden color, it smells like a Euro lager to me. It has a big white head that dies down quickly. There is very little lacing left on the glass. Overall it is worth a try, but nothing special.

Kind of taste like weed at first. Clear yellow and easy to drink. Not bad. I drank this with my brother and we both noticed that it gave us both a sharp headache.

Bought a 6-pack $5.99 Longs Drugs
Light clear color
Light mouthfeel
Light Carbonation
Slight malt taste, not much else
Overall worse than a Bud Light. It may be good to drink with food because it doesn't have any taste to distract you from the food itself, but by itself its a pretty bland beer.

This is a great yellow fizz water to enjoy with some spicy food on a hot day. There isn't a whole lot to it, but I didn't want a beer I had to think about, just quench my thirst. This hit the spot. Good stuff. Very underrated.

It pours a light see through gold color with very little smell at all. The taste is ok but very watery. A mouthful of this does not leave much of any kind of flavor. I saw it in store any gave it a try, not impressed at all.
