A - This clear golden brew comes in a glass bottle that could cause serious skunkage, and throws up a fizzy and short lived bone white head. No real lace to speak of, but head retention is slightly better than other pale lagers.
S - Corn tortillas with salt. Cornbread malt profile with a very light peppery hop note. This does a better job approximating a real pilsener than some other macro "pilseners," but it still smells like loads of adjucts.
T - Biscuity and peppery. Very much in the vein of a lighter German pils. I'm really surprised by how different this is from what I was expecting. I thought that this would be another Mexican, Bahamian, macro beach beer but this shows a bit more character than others. It's still pretty light and corny, but it does have some saaz hop characteristics and a nice firm bicsuity malt backbone.
M - Light bodied and highly carbonated. The finish is pretty sweet, and that kills the whole German pils vibe that this beer almost has going for it.
D - This is a step above typical beach party clear golden lagers, but it's really nothing special. I would gladly drink a few of these Corona killers on a scorching day at the beach, but I probably wouldn't buy this intentionally. This sample was kindly provided to me by the husband of a lady that I work with...I have a reputation at work as "the beer guy," and he graciously sent one of these to work with his wife for me to try (at home of course).

It's very light--I'll give it that. Good for mass-consumption at an outdoor concert. But whereas Corona can hold up as being relatively flavorless as a refreshing summery beer, this one has that extra aftertaste of metallic unpleasantness that really makes this beer a smart one to miss. Don't bother.

Nothing too amazing to report. Basically a corona with different packaging. Smell and taste were a bit skunky and it was light in both mouthfeel and appearance. It's popular due to availability and price and maybe a little from Buffet recognition. Overall you could pass this one by and not really miss anything.
