This is a good beer. Smooth with a little kick. Throw in sal y and a Lime and it gives it that extra kick needed. The taste of the black crown is more powerful than the lime. Which is good in its own since. Also this somehow will get you tipsy without trying

Bought it thinking it might be decent, but it was just typical macro watered down beer. Last time ill ever pay for a macro.

Much better than the original and any other macro. Still wouldn't ever drink it again though

Appearance: Pours a quickly dissipated 2 finger head that leaves little in the way of lacing. Color was deep golden-copper...I don't see the red. Lots of action going on in the glass as well.

Smell: Picking up a little malt...I think. Some stale hops too. Wait...There's the hops and some other metallic smell too.

Taste: Light caramel malt with noticeable alcohol in the back. Bitterness is at least balanced but not enough character to support alcohol content.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and smooth. Goes down fast and would suffice as a lawnmower. Carbonation is a tad high and decreases the smoothness a touch.

Overall: Not the worst beer I've ever had and certainly not the worst from the brewer. This is one of the better efforts from AB.

Do not taste the hint of caramel they refer to, however a lot lighter than I originally anticipated It to be. I would drink it again.
