Why in the world did I pick up a 6er of this...Why?

This may quite possibly be the worst beer I have rated on this fine website. I picked this up being open minded and reminding myself I have found some gems I thought were turds along the way. Well, this ended up being a sad turd. The look was your classic piss-colored brew, though it did have a nice white head to start off with. The smell and taste were simply not good - no scent of hops or malt, just a skunky odor and taste that was miserable from start to finish. The feel was about the only thing notable as it had a spicy quality to it that was of surprise to me. Overall, I split the difference and I'm not wondering how in the heck I am ever gonna finish the other five I have.

Aroma grains, crackers, lemon, light spice, slight skunkiness, medium carbo. Taste bready malt, dough, sweet corn, faint citrus, metallic bitter finish, medium body. Just another barley water.

Parents brought me back a can of this from the Bahamas.

Pours a clear bright piss yellow color with high carbonation evident and one inch of bright white head. Nose is corn and sweet fruits, grains, taste is much worse like cigarettes. Thin body and high carbonation.

A terrible beer; drink something else if you're in the Bahamas.

Bottle received in trade.
Brilliantly clear light golden color with a decent but short lived bubbly white head. Skunk in spades as soon as I pop the cap it envelopes the room. It slowly fades but it is constant in the aroma and flavor. Light crackery bready malt with some residual sweetness, carbonic bite, and faint hop presence. I guess I could say I've had worse and maybe these aren't always light struck. If I find myself in the Bahamas I will try again.
