OK, so finally got around to reviewing the shitty beer I drank before I was 21... back then I didn't know better and I figured if I could throw a lime in it, it couldn't be all that bad. This one sans fruit.

Pours a decent fizzy head that retains a bit, a little lacing, crystal clear light pilsner watery color.

Nose a little watery corn water, touch sweet malty, extract malt like mash, a touch of almost lemony thing, I almost think hops but not quite, and a very faint skunky note.

Taste goes down hill a bit, more skunky notes, a little cereal water, like cereal soaked in water, then the water was poured into this, a little metallic mineral like thing, grimy gritty thing on the back end, touch of what could be considered hops, big metallic flavor lingering.

Mouth is thinner, watery, decent carbonation.

Overall this is a step up from some of the other macro beers, but still a pretty bad beer.

The great beer for a day at the beach. If only such were true. It's amazing how far a seductive ad campaign can get a beer. But, when the blindfold is on, this beer is the awkward wallflower in the corner.

Bitter, yet still tasteless. Good on a hot day with a lime though.

On taste, it is skunky, not regular skunky, but like a barn filled with skunks. Also tastes like corn chips. Very light, mostly unappealing lookwise. Not any head to speak of nor a good feel. Unless you're looking for a mineral water or soda. The go to for back yard barbeques, and I have no idea why.
