I used to go to a now defunct pizza joint in Greenville, n.c., they had this on tap, warm for $1/pitcher. No flavor, no nothing. I am no aficionado, but this is the beer of college students and people who hate their kidneys. Avoid at all costs, please.

A - Clear gold with a white forthy bubbly head. No lacing.

S - Slighty grainy, water

T - Follows the nose pretty much. Slight amounts of rice grains, with a watery finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium to heavy carbonation.

O - Overall, Just another cheap beer. This one was definitely bottom of the barrel.

Cheap, beer. I'm guessing people who want to bring out the "end of the night" stuff will use this beer. It smells a bit like pee. There is a bit of bitterness, but it's bearable. A beerable beer this is for under a buck a shuck.
There is much better stuff out there though.
