Very, very smooth beer and very drinkable on a hot day or night. I generally loathe lighter beers but this is very enjoyable while being totally boring and bland at the same time. But I can get it for the same price as bud / bud light at a local bar and it is infinitely more enjoyable.

Pretty decent beer. Pours a golden yellow with a slight white head that stays for a little bit before dissipating. Smell is sweet and malty with a hint of tropical fruit. Taste is crisp, good amount of carbonation. Nothing extraordinary, but solid beer for a hot day.
