First had: bottle from some friend's cooler

First beer I ever had. Good thing I kept trying.

Pours a clear straw color with a small, white head that fizzles out rather quickly. Not much in the smell other than skunk and some light malts. About the same in the taste: stale malts and lots of skunk. Fizzy and weak, light bodied, and none to drinkable. Please avoid.

Holy skunk, Batman! Usually the first thing I comment on id the appearance, but I didn’t even get it out of the bottle before this NASTY wave of skunk hit me. Didn’t get any better when I pour it into the glass. Let’s let it sit for a bit and see if the stink subsides a bit. It’s a pale gold brew with a small, white, rapidly diminishing, fizzy head. OK, the stink did go away a bit, but it’s still not pleasing. Now I can pick up a corny, grainy, adjunct smell with a little floral hop to it. Taste is vegetable-like, with a skunk kick. Even my belch is skunky. This is just wrong, and it’s going down the drain. I remember back in the day, I used to like this stuff. Maybe it’s a bad bottle, but looking at the past few reviews, I’m thinking it’s just a crappy beer. Avoid.

I don't find this beer to be a particularly good lager. It has been around for awhile and that is about all you can say about it.

[Eyes] Clean Yellow Brillant looking with a respectable head.

[Nouse] Some hops in there, very light Like a German pils.

[MOuth] Tastes like water with a little touch of alcohol: crisp and clean with absolutely no respectable flavor, is fresh like a comercial Comun pale lager

Nose of metal, and cats pee (for those of who that don’t know cats pee is a legitimate smell description often used by winos.) Taste is watery, grainy and rather sweet. A cloying sweetness with faint hints of artificial grape flavor is present instead of bittering. This is a nasty beer. It seems so innocuous, and I have never encountered any American macros I simply could not handle, but this one will go down as the first. I gave this one to my roommate. Puke
