The ubiquitous classic. Drank straight from the big bottle.

Hate the color of this, placid yellow with no much life though there is a thin ring of foam. Aroma isn't great, not too skunky thankfully. Flavor is better than i remember, meaning it doesn't taste like piss. Has a semblance of fruit and grain and skunkiness is dialed down. This particular tasting was decent but i've had worse bottles. Wedge of lime might have knocked it a point up ;)

Reviewed from notes taken last night, 1/8/14.

This beer pours a hint of white head, and keeps absolutely none of it. No ring, no lace. The body is the color of urine.

The smell is skunky with adjunct. I also get not so fresh grass clippings and not so fresh orange peel.

It starts off with a little buttery cracker taste. It gets a little sweetness to it that I was trying to identify as corn or rice. Grassy finish.

The beer was moderately carbonated. The mouthfeel was the most pleasant part of it. It had a refreshing feeling, was light bodied and just washed down so clean and easy.
