UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 40 oz. glass bottle stolen from Chan Parks Kwik-E in San Agosto, California. Poured into a Plastic Snoopy water bowl. Tastes like terrier, brass spoon, polyurethane and freebase residue. Slight notes of malty kibble and old peed linoleum subfloor. Big, stupid bubbles symbolize the loss of will to live. As it warms, dont care anymore. Got to go buy a lottery ticket before 7 oclock. Definitely try if only to taste the dishonesty that exists between human beings.

Aroma - Sweet and somewhat over powering, some what of a fruity or expired fruit smell. Appearance - Good looking bottle. Sold in the big 40 Oz bottles because bulk is always cheaper. Taste - I drink this stuff warm as I do most beer. I find it honestly smoother and more flavourful that way. It has a clean, crisp taste and a smooth finish. Many will find the first 4 or 5 drinks will be a struggle, but after that it goes down nicely. Palate - Somewhat of a fruity, sugary taste while still keeping true to its golden colour. Overall - This always has been, and always will be my go to when i have enough money for it. Its a treat that you splurge on when pay day comes around. Great beer, only downside is the aroma.

Wow! Just wow. So it actually looks like it might be refreshing if icy and cold but no. No, no, no! It pours a nice light golden color with a pure white head that has good retention....aaaand thats where it ends. Zero flavor except maybe a little sweetness reminiscent of a cantaloupe. Has a body of a glass of water and an aroma of a stale band-aid. Thats all Ive got but then again what else do you need to know!

jjsint (2745) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 32-ounce container. Pours surprisingly light and sparkly. Babycham-esque. Toasty grainy scent. Not much. Taste also not much. Sweet and not too offensive but quite artificial. Weirdly astringent taste in the finish. Necco wafers and eggy bread in the aftertaste. Not impossibly awful but fairly pitiful.

Havent tasted this beer since the mid 70s. Once was enough! I still have nightmares. If you know anyone who likes this beer, stay away from them, theyre probably dangerous.

3 or so oz sample from a 24oz can, while waiting in line at Perennial for a Side Project release. This beer takes all the offensive flavors typically found in macro lagers, the flavors that are typically subdued and are undetected when you drink ice cold as encouraged, and amplifies them. This is a beer for someone who really likes the way warm Busch tastes, but wants much more of that awful flavor in their face, at a more drinkable temperature. Its every bit as bad as anyone has ever claimed it to be.
