This is a nice lager when it isn't skunky.

So, one of our buddies brought this atrocious beer over for a stream that we do, and left a half-drank one in the building. Since then, it has been "aging", unlike fine wine, and is starting to grow life inside of it. Where there is hope, there is a way life will manage to sprout. Seriously, I believe in two months, this thing will grow a Lifeform that may take us all out. If not, it will most likely be, the next Plague of sorts, or it will have the ability to bring someone back from the dead, that's how potent it is. Legit, how do people even drink this garbage?

Realize I am comparing this brew to other supposed "pale lagers" in the US domestic category.

US macros use adjuncts like RICE....

AFAIK Heineiken does NOT!

Macro for sure, but at least it is a REAL BEER! even given the green bottle!

Say what you want.... skunky, or whatever... stilll a better pale lager than the US macros that use ADJUNCTS!!!!

Even via keg, or bottle.... this is a better beer than the US macros....

It is crisp when properly cooled, and refreshing as expected. Good "lawn mowing beer"!
