Smells like skunk. Looks light yellow and fizzy. Tastes like skunk with a little beer thrown in. Its crisp which is about all its got going for it. Ill never understand why this stuff is so popular.

I have never enjoyed this beer at all. It also seems to be skunked out, and watered down.

So overrated it gives overrated a bad name. Smells bad, taste is terrible, looks normal which seems to sucker some people to drink it.Anyone who drinks 2 has no taste buds. Any TV commercial(s) that try as hard as Heineken to be "about the Beer" tell it all.

Nice aroma and bitterness. Pale yellow with fizzy, light head. a little watery, but good bite and malted taste. Not heavy or low on crispness like Rolling Rock.

MattShizzle (606) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2006 Very overrated. Often skunked due to green bottle. Not a very good beer even if not skunked. Can get a good microbrew cheaper.

Pretty standard lager, the sort you down in the pub without thinking. Like many others of the shop bought tackle.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Aroma is slight malt the pour is pale yellow with a nice head. Taste very much like any macro American pale lager with just a bit more flavor & bitterness.

BeerloverEJ21 (131) - Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Alright, but not great. Kind of sour, wrong mix of hops. Its drinkable, but only if I run out of beer. Not my first choice.

Standard lager. I dont need to write a book about this one. I am happy to find others taste and smell skunk. I sure did. I always do with Heineken.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 Updated rating from a can... dont drink this from a bottle if you dont absolutely have to. Medium golden-yellow pour with a short white cap. Nose picked up sweet malts and a faint floral hoppage. Flavor carried through the aroma, and it was smooth and easy-drinking... Nothing exciting here, but the can vs. bottle made a whole world of difference.
