look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale golden yellow with 1/2" of dense, foamy head that has good retention. The nose is sweet and grainy with faint grassy hops. The taste is sweet and corny with some faint pilsner malt and and faint grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and crisp with decent carbonation.

This is a pretty decent beer for the style. There aren't any off flavors, but it is a little sweet. I'd drink this again.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Straw colored with a fading head, no lacing and lots and lots of bubbles.

Smell is of grain, corn, slight malt and maybe some hops.

Taste is grassy and corny with not a ton of flavor. Goes down nicely with light body and high carbonation. Very refreshing lager.

A decent adjunct that is great for tailgating or parties, but bad for when you wan to enjoy a well crafted beer. Nothing offensive about it but there just isn't much there.

Pint glass with lime.

A: pale straw with no head. Not too bad for the beach. Persistent bubbling.

S: faint corn and citrus. No hops.

T: tastes like some kind of very watery corn lime soda. No hops, very little malt. Pretty refreshing on the beach but does it need to be so alcoholic ?

M: pretty drinkable in same way as ginger ale.

This one pours a clear golden yellow color with a cap of white head. It settles quickly though.

I feel redundant when I review beers like this but they aren’t much different I guess. The aroma is light and grainy with a touch of sweetness in the end. Grainy and sweet with a little bit of must on the pallet. Seems to have a bit of a metallic finish here.

The body is light with lively carbonation. Overall this one is off putting. Seems to have some flavors that just don’t belong.

12oz Bottle

Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is almost no lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, skunk

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts and very light hops mixed with corn/vegetables. It finishers with grainy aftertaste with a hint of corn syrup sweetness.

Overall – It's not horrendous.. especially when drank very cold right from the bottle. But still, there is no reason why I would ever buy this beer again.

I mean what do you want out of this product.

If it's 100 degrees out and you're at the beach, this will do. Not great but for mass production it's on the better end IMHO.

For people who drink coors light and miller light this is a step in the right direction albeit a small one.

Change it up from Corona and the like.

From Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville? As if such a place existed. One more lousy, fizzy, mass produced lager. Sold in clear glass bottles so as to insure skunking. Pours clear. Thin bodied. Awful finish. What a waste of resources. Pouring down the drain might cause water pollution. Puts the VILE in Margaritaville. [eh! Even the puns are lousy with this one.]

A middle of the road, light lemon yellow, blah lager with a decent head. Citrusy, crisp, will quench a thirst, but so does Gatorade; MUST DRINK ICE COLD ! When it warms up it transforms into a witches brew of tinny metallic flavors.

Since I need 20 more characters for this review, do not insult Jimmy Buffet by playing "Margaritaville" when trying this!

why do I do this to myself? I try to sample all kinds of beer, thinking that maybe some brewer somewhere has something unique or interesting twists. Not so here.

Ok, so it looks alright. Pale yellow, big foam.

Horrid aroma. Just shy of gagging. Old corn, sugar, and burnt tin foil. Arsenic? Jeez

Tastes the same as the nose. Although not as salient. It's cold, and that's good. I don't want to try this warm. Sweet, corn, stale malt, old sock. Drain pour

A below average American adjunct lager.

It goes down easy and is a good thirst quencher if served ice cold.
And I have to admit, I like the packaging.

Those are the only two things this beer has going for it.

Once it warms up, the yucky flavors come through.

Makes no sense to buy this when Miller, Rolling Rock and Coors Light are so much cheaper.
