Had this for the first time in a few years. Tasted like how gasoline smells. Left a chemically feeling in my mouth, not a fan.

One of the most common beers around these parts. It's a very sweet brew - pretty much liquid honey. No hops whatsoever. If you're a serious beer drinker, you'll probably want to avoid. But if you're like me and you wind up somewhere with no real options and commercial beer en masse, this is an easy-drinking alternative.

An old stand by at the college inn in Seattle. Great beer that I used to love drinking, resulting in the strangest hangovers, sadly I had to stop.

Great initial flavor, to me a nutty aftertaste.
