I'd really like to like this beer. The label's cool, with St. Arnold, the "patron saint of beer". The color's good, it looks good in the glass. But you take a sniff and it smells a little stale. Houston's only three hours from me, so it can't be out of date. You take a swallow and it has a weird chemical taste. From the glass it's okay if ice cold. It's damn-near undrinkable from the bottle. Besides, if it smells bad, would you volunteer to drink it? St. Arnold's has better offerings.
