look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Classic green bottle, clear yellow color, big fluffy white head with decent retention. Not much lacing. Big time skunky nose; maybe a little grassy hops underneath. Tastes much like the nose; a good deal of skunkinesss but oddly I didn’t find all that unpleasant. Sharp skunk with a little grainy malt, a touch of sweetness and grass. I was actually surprised it had as much flavor, be it as it were, as it did. Body is obviously pretty thin, carbonation is crisp, fairly clean and refreshing. Pretty watery overall.

I didn’t hate this one. I actually prefer the sharp green bottle skunkiness of beers like this and Heineken to American brews like Bud Light and Coors Light, which have even less flavor. I certainly wouldn’t seek this one out but it did the trick when it was the only option and accompanied a freshly grilled backyard burger on a sunny afternoon.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours pale straw clear with whire head that quickly disolves. No lacing but lots of carbonation throughout the glass More than usual.
Immediate hoppy odor when poured. Strong wet paper smell.
Tastes of strong hop, bitter and rough on tongue with hypercarbonation sensation. Watery mouth tastes consistent to back of throat and bitter hop lingers and lingers.
I wanted to refrain from any term that sounds like skunky but I can't. Will store the rest if the 12 pack and one day this may come in handy but not in the foreseeable future I hope.
