Wasn't even going to write a review on this until I was a few sips in. Just wait. Anyway three tall boys of this swill was gifted to me by an uncle who won some in store credit to the tune of around $500 on some truck stop game machines. Thanks man.

Look - Transparent yellow without a head and an assload of carbonation. No stick.

Smell - Here's where things really get fun. Absolutely astringent in every sense of the word. All reference to beer was filtered from this thing and replaced with leftover industrial cleanser.

Taste - If you've read the scent, you already understand the taste. Bitter as all get out to boot.

Feel - Heavily carbonated like champagne on steroids and far too thick bodied for its own good. Swallow induces the gag reflex and nearly makes you spit up the beer.

Overall - Absolutely atrocious in every sense of the word. Figured this was going to be another generic light lager without a frill that scored in the mid 2's and forgotten by tomorrow morning. Instead I will remember this for all the wrong reasons. A light lager...hell any adjunct lager style is supposed to be easy going and poundable without a care in the world. This thing fails in every single regard aside from maybe the appearance. Up there with steel reserve and labatt maximum ice in terms of worst tasting beers I've ever had the displeasure of consuming. Any other light lager you can grab at a supermarket is like a TIPA compared to this. Seriously. Even something as putrid as NATURAL ICE tastes like heaven compared to this.

EDIT AS OF 2/20/18. Tried to drink another one. Absolutely terrible. Sweaty and chokingly bubbly. Guess the rest go to my neighbor.

Not good at all. Has a strange taste up front then a strange aftertaste.

Such a disappointment. Look is poor, scent is hardly there, and the taste is almost vinegar like. On top of that the mouthfeel is pretty poor, so all in all a pretty poor lager.

Not very flavourful. Lacks anything distinct. The scent is faint and unappealing, the taste is bland. Settles poorly.
