Of course it is tempting to say this brew is aptly named, but I think its just cleverly named.

Its a blonde ale, so it needstobe judged by the fairly low standards of that style. This one has been sitting around my place being the butt of jokes for a couple months. Time to drink it and I'm enjoying it.

It has the typical blonde color with never ending fizz. It has a very mild yeasty aroma. Very nice.

The taste is a bit sweet and thin and the aftertaste isn't much either, but overall this was better than horse piss.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy gold in color, witha short head of white foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Immediately not good. Carbonated wet cardboard. Flavors are off. I check for a freshness date, but none to be found. I doubt if a brewery-fresh bottle would be any better. A beer that truly lives up to its name. Even mediocre craft beer would taste heavenly if consumed right after a taste of this awful brew. Avoid. Even as a joke.

Served in a shaker pint glass.

Alright, so my buddies and I took our usual trip over to Village Bottle Shoppe. After some minor perusing of the liquor, I headed for the cooler door that showcases individual bottles of various beers. My eyes alit on a braying horse face, complete with the words "Horse Piss" beneath it. There was no point in resisting.

This stuff pours a clear straw topped by a finger of relatively short-lived lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises very mild bread and light touches of grass and sweet flowers every now and again. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a more-than-healthy amount of hard water thrown in for the sake of it. The body is fairly light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, though not out-and-out bad, per se, this beer does sort of live up to what its name implies. It's light, it's unimpressive, and it's an occurrence that's more common than we'd collectively like.
