2.3/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Appearance: Poured from the 12 oz clear bottle into a pilsner glass. I feel this is somewhat unnecessary, I can see what the beer looks like and know what to expect. A clear, golden, yellow beer with my pour producing a white head about 1 inch in height that quickly fades away.
Smell: No malt, no hops, just sweet adjunct. I'm leaning toward corn. Not overly enticing, but it's not made this way to smell nice.
Taste: An overt sweetness to the beer, it did have a little bitterness on the end, but it does not balance out the sweet adjunct flavors, which I am going to go with corn, sweet corn. The advantage to the flavor is there is not a lot of it and it does not linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel: Light and watery; the beer does have good carbonation which keeps it lively. Crisp, with a clean (read no) aftertaste.
Overall: I would not have bought this if it had not been $20 for a case with a $10 rebate. Still, I ended up giving away 2 of the 6 packs. I just didn't want a case after a couple of these. Interesting enough my bottle looks just like the picture, except instead of Jacksonville, FL it says St. Louis, MO. Found that a bit odd. Not recommended, will not buy again.

I thought Jimmy Buffet could have done better than this. I was wrong. Has a very "Euro" smell similar to Stella or Dab, etc. Looks like High Life, both in the bottle and the mug. Nothing overly fancy, just an Americanized version of a Euro Lager without the green bottle. Very crisp clean finish with a strong aftertaste. This is probably good if you need a quick fix to hit the Summer BBQ or pool party. That's about it. Not bad, but not that good. I would definitely pick Stella or something similar over this.
