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

A: This beer is getting drunk right from the bottle, seeing as I can clearly see the text on the back label through the legal notepad colored and completely clear yellow. Seems to have a bright paper white froth.

S: Smells of pilsner and adjunct. Some fruit, like a dried up lime.

T: Tiny malt flavor. A build up to a fruity and sort of hide and seek style of hop character that can only be defined as canned peach and lemon. A little bit of skunk from the barrage of light through the clear glass bottle sitting in the 7-11 display case for god knows how long.

M: Light body, medium carbonation. A little too sweet, but not bitter in the slightest.

O: Look, in terms of American Adjunct Lagers, this one stands above many others. Much better than anything the big macro's throw out there, and i'd prefer this to a heavy craft porter, stout or imperial on a hot day in july.

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

Appearance: Very pale yellow brew, soda pop like fizzy white head.

Smell: Malt with a slight chemical aroma.

Taste: Slightly tart, mild malt hovers in the distance, slight hint of hops.

Mouthfeel: Light body, seems “enhanced” to be wetter than it is.

Drinkablity: Not terrible. OK for what it is trying to be.

Local beer store has cases of tall boy cans for $11.94. I'm not a big fan but for that price I can be swayed:) BTW, I am assuming that my beer is not a fresh sample at that price.

A - Light straw in color. Head fades fast but does actually lace a little bit. Very clear.

S - smells like adjuncts. Has a sweetness about it in the smell. Hint of hops present.

T - I wouldn't say that this is a Corona clone as I thought it would be. Maybe it is the marketing that does that. There is a sweet 'Cloying' finish to it that I'm not a fan of.

O - It is what it is and that isn't necessarily bad but it isn't my cup of tea.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Christmas party leftovers of what? Ok let's see how this goes. Uh oh.. clear bottle!

A very pale straw yellow and crystal clear body. Head is a simple white, not too shocking bright, but even has some slight foamy retention not bad. Some small rising carbonation.

Nose is dishwasher lemon detergent fake sensing, and slight skunk. Not much else here, no bready malts or hop.

Taste has some sweet sugar, but noting too syrupy. Faint white bread like malt, nothing hoppy. A real artificial lemon finish, some playful and slightly crisp carbonation. Not too fizzy, some fairly better than average body slightly in the palate.

Overall though, aftertaste and smell isn't that great. I could drink this but with so many other beers out there why?!

This beer rates right up there with Beast Ice, in other words, it's the most disgusting excuse for beer I've ever been conned into sampling. It was free, and worth every penny. Tastes like a cross between dirty dishwater and rotten bananas. Bad, bad beer. Something only assholes would drink there's no Coors to be had.
