Not bad, not good. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to buy, but it's ok as a cooler filler for an afternoon or evening outside with friends. Also, not as refreshing as I expected.

Like many others I used to drink this a lot when I was younger. I decided to try this again to see if I still liked it. I didn't. Watery with a bad aftertaste. Not the worst cheap beer out there, I will finish the six pack eventually.
