Used to be way back in my time you could look cool like Mick Jagger if you walked around a bar with one of these in your hand. That's about all it was good for back then, and today it's just not good for much. There's so much better stuff you can spend your money on. Don't fall for the marketing and the rep. Avoid.

Blond and bland. Inoffensive, but entirely lacking in character. Nothing much else to say really.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 I end up getting it sometimes in the $2, 24 ounce bottles as a "backup", along with a six of something good.

the only foreign beer skunkier is grolsch. hard to believe that i used to think this was one of the best beers out there. wow, how i've grown to appreciate beer. this beer does not hold a candle to the great micro-brews of today!

Before I learned too much about beer, this was my favorite beer. It's okay, but there's nothing great about it, really. Not bad either.

standard pissy color with a skunk nose. carbonated water. i can get some cheaper lager with basically the same taste. you can do better for your money.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Very pale straw-coloured beer with a thin head fading to thin lace. Has a sweet malty smell with plenty of great fruity-smelling esters. I don’t know what the skunky smell everyone else is talking about is, I’ve never gotten that impression. I think this is a pretty good straight-forward lager.

Truck stop men's room nose. Initial bite of nickel finishes with clean quarter notes. I've never had one that wasn't skunked. What, do they store these things on the sun in their pretty green bottles. I'd rather drink ODouls.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Smells skunked. Even when fresh it has that bitter smell to it. Very watery and thin. Has a sour/bitter malty taste. Nothing special.
