"Not only is the lid RUSTED but the beer is also nasty."
Last month, Elon Musk's electric car company Tesla announced it was selling a "CyberBeer" and accompanying "CyberStein" for an eye-watering $150 — all in the service, of course, of the long-delayed launch of its divisive Cybertruck.
Notice the sloppy capitalization? If the "B" in CyberBeer is capitalized, why isn't the "T" upper case in Cybertruck? In other words, it's exactly the kind of lazy cash grab you'd expect the carmaker suck money out of those who've made Tesla their entire personality.
And judging by the fact that the limited edition set is already out of stock, the EV maker is already laughing its way to the bank.
But if the latest reviews are anything to go by, it's an absolutely foul concoction.
"Tesla Cyberbeer is hot garbage," Tesla owner Brian Stone tweeted. "Not only is the lid RUSTED but the beer is also nasty."
"This was a miss, Elon Musk," he added.
The seven percent alcohol bottle of what's allegedly a liberally hopped Helles lager brewed by Buzzrock Brewing in California features an unusual polygonal design that "celebrates the angular exoskeleton of Cybertruck," per the company's website.
Two matte ceramic beer steins, "fired to mirror the form of Cybertruck," come in the box as well, making for an awkward drinking experience.
The company has already sold a number of bizarre products, including its own brand of Tequila, a surfboard, and even a seemingly-counterfeited Cybertruck-inspired cat bed.
But the actual beer sounds like it was more of an afterthought.
"Why does the Tesla CyberBeer feel like something I’m gonna get alcohol poisoning from," Tesla guy Jeremy Judkins tweeted.
"Should you drink the rust from the Tesla CyberBeer top?" another confused customer asked.
"I think this is what they mean by being Musked," another user replied.
Other reviewers were a little more kind with their reviews. The CyberBeer currently has a rating of 3.8 stars out of five over on Untappd — though, of course, that could easily be review bombing by Tesla fanboys.
"Actually pretty decent," reviewer Gordon Weeks wrote.
But we'll let you decide whether that middling experience is worth the price as roughly five 24-packs of beer.
