First had: bottle from somewhere...friend's dad's fridge, or a dive bar, I assume.

Seems like a lot of trouble to put the elaborate caps on these nasty things.

Pours a pale straw color, fizzy carbonation, and a white head that disappears quickly. Faint grainy aroma, but mostly skunk. Sweet, stale grains to the taste, skunky and watery, Light mouthfeel, and poor drinkability unless you just like chugging watery beers. To be avoided.

Fizzy beer gold color. Large fizzy head. Aroma is DMS, wet cardboard and Flavor is matly and slightly hoppy, but is obscured by the green bottle skunkyness. Bad bottle? Possibly, I have tried this beer several times and it always taste like this, some more some less, Average lager, but this one was UNDRINKABLE

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a white, thin head that fades fast, lively carbonation. Aroma is grainy, with notes of yeast and citrus. Thin body. Taste reminds me of fermented apple cider. I could not drink this beer. The bottle probably was too old.

Nice swing cap bottle looks cool thats about it! It looks thin and pale golden color very thin body.

The head is almost not their small fizzy and gone in a flash!

The taste is less then appetizing bad skunky taste to go with the skunk aroma!

I am not in the business of bashing any frosty adult beverage, but this beer was awful! It had a funky smell, almost a skunky smell, but I pushed on. The colour isn't bad but when you taste it, man, thats BAD BEER. It has a copper almost bloody taste and actually made me snort and shake my head when I drank it.
I don't just dislike this beer, I AM AFRAID OF IT!
