Okay, this one falls in the "What has been seen cannot be unseen" department.  I never thought hello Kitty was cute and this really doesn't change my opinion.

A few other beer name ideas including kids toys came to mind while typing this but none of them fit with the TOS of this forum.

I was expecting it to be loaded with Citra and Simcoe.


Although I never get the cat pee with those hops that so many others report.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Looks like a new way InBev has discovered to get the "under age" market. For shame.
