Why don't people understand that just because your dad and your dad's dad drank it doesn't mean its good. This beer shouldn't be shouldn't served, sold, or given away for free. This is pure butt pee in a can. Some one should petition congress and have there brewery shut down and burned. This a black eye on America's beer portfolio. I hate this beer.

Putrid, unpleasant, stale. All words that fit the bill for this one. The worst of the AAL pile in my opinion.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
