There are better beers for way less money. This always struck me as something that frat-boy types can talk about in bars and try to sound impressive as though it's the bee's knees and the most extra special wonderful brew ever created. Fuck it, this is skunky and cheap.

This was always the beer to have when we went for an imported 6-pack. It is interesting that is rates so poorly given that, literally, 10 to 15 years ago this would have been a benchmark beer. Comments about it skunkiness or negative hop aroma are related to its state at purchase, not in its overall quality. Look, this beer deserves respect as a grandaddy if nothing else.

This would be a lot better if it weren't for the trademark skunkiness. Decent hop bitterness, still slightly cheap tasting. Not worth the prices.

Very pale & golden coloured. Light lacing. Sweet aroma. Light tasting, with some hop flavour.

Now this is what I think of when I think of beer....looks and smells great. Can be a little skunky...but how can you resist the mini-keg cans?

A cut above the domestic yellow fizzy beers. This beer pours golden with a decent head. Unlike the macro swill this beer has a head that is retained and actually has some lacing. Skunky, hoppy aroma is followed by a skunky flavor with a light dash of hop bitterness. This is one of the beers I will look for at baseball games. Decent.

Overall a good beer I like the flavor, and I like the aroma and appearance. I could drink this almost every night of the week and I usually do.

Diablokev (162) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2003
The aroma was a bit sour, and lightly hoppy. The appearance is a clear gold, with a thin bubbly head. The flavor is hoppy, with a slight hint of bubble gum??? The beer is crisp and clean. Overall average at best.

2.2
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Yellow, head dissipated quickly. Slightly sweet with a dry finish. Mass produced + heavily advertised = less than average beer.
