Not much to say here. Wasn't a very good beer in my book. Not balanced at all, probably used Nugget hops to bitter it, and
nothing else. My bottle was skunked, stale tasting, and just plain bad all around. I didn't even pour it in a glass, because who
wants to wash a glass after having a terrible beer in it? Not much in the way of body, that's for sure. Thin and watery, not much
maltiness in it either. Extremely un-balanced in my book. Find better out there, gang.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Pale yellow in color, with a head that hangs around like a convict at a crime scene. Smells like stale beer, tastes like something you would get at ’free beer night’ at a bowling alley.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not good, lacked body, lacked any kind of stand-out flavors, very bland, too light of a body, very little head, not good at all

"Remarkably smooth", perhaps, but it seems less so in light of the lack of richness and body, despite what the commercial description says. A little fruit, and a nice color, but wanting for many other attributes.

Classic with nice label, huh? The head was weak and shy. Flavour and aroma similar to diluted B-40. No kidding. Bad, bad stuff.

Straw; grassy-gasoline aroma; relatively smooth body leading to finish of fusel alcohol.

So me and 3 friends heard there was a sale on 12 horse. It was only $9.99 for 24 bottles. This sounded like a good idea for us broke college kids. We all ended up buying a case each. Three out of the four of us ended puking at 3 in the morning. IT was like the 12 horse just sat in your stomach. It tasted a lot better coming back up. Needless to say the 12 horse got to our 4th friend the next night. This beer sucks my ass but, i don’t thnk anyone will ever forget it.

glitzy label much differnen than the 7 oz. nip I remember realtives in Lancaster draining. Better than any cheap local in Chicago. Bit of a winy aftertaste.
