Had a pint on tap at Chicago Dogs in Scarborough, Maine, a place with really terrific hot dogs and much better beers than this on tap.

Appearance: Pours a clear yellow with no head at all. Looks very much like urine.

Aroma: Like it's big brother, it sort of smells like used rice cooker water. It's more faint, which I guess is kind of a good thing.

Taste: Gross. Tastes like a regrettable frat party, the halftime bathroom line of a mid-grade sports event, or the floor of an Applebee's. It's basically rice-tasting water.

Mouthfeel: The only thing more watery is water.

Overall: I like that it came served in a Patriots Bud Light glass. I gave this beer a legit shot - I drank it with hot dogs while watching sports - effectively handing it home field advantage. But it's just bad. There's no reason to drink this as long as tap water remains free.
