Bottle, Honolulu. Taste like any other domestic. I am getting a real "AB/Bud light feel from this beer, I don’t think this label has anything to do with the beer inside

A standard new world interpretation of a pilsner....light in color with no head. A standard BMC taste....bad...with the can coming out fairly well.

Pretty nasty beer. Pours a light amber color with a non-existent head. The taste is of a resin and leaves a light aftertaste.

Smells of slightly dirty water. Essentially fizzy yellow beer. Has very little flavor what-so-ever. Doesn’t taste bad, just doesn’t taste.

Pretty bad, watery, no flavor really. A step up from tecate, a step down from corona, but that’s not saying much.

seymour (1391) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Drank directly from fancy bottle. Clear, pale golden color with average white foam. Aromas of fresh cut grass, faint fermented corn and oxidized late hops. Flavors of white bread, slight hops bitterness, barely perceptible fruity phenols. Clean, crisp lager finish. Mediocre light lager, but goes down easy, especially with spicy Mexican food.

Bottle. Extremely plae and clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma of toasted corn. Taste is similar to every other watery pale lager.

The aroma fooled me into thinking it would be okay with the faint smell of grasses. The taste was a metallic carbonation bomb with little in the way of resembling a beer. It was also awful on the palate as we’ll.

Here’s what I said, and the sequence of events that happened as I attempted to drink this: (sniffing the beer) ’Ewww’, (sniff) ’Ewww’, (small sip), ’Ewww’, (pouring beer down drain...)
