The beer pours a very clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of grain notes, as well as a hint of grass from the hops. The flavor is more of the same. Grain and biscuit malt dominate, with some grass and the slightest hint of bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a good beer, but nothing offensive. It basically just smells and tastes like nothing.

If you don't like beer, this is the beer for you. Pours like a soft drink that's been left in a hot car, then kicked around for a while. Unfortunately, it doesn't taste as good as it pours. There's a hint of old shoe in there, and an aftertaste of regret and self-loathing that is truly unique. I'd recommend it for this experience, or if you're having to choose between Bud Light or getting food poisoning from the water in Mexico (I chose the water personally, but to each their own).
