2.6/5 rDev +13%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Bottle: a clear 355mL bottle with a tacky and cheap-looking transluscent macro label.
Appearance: very light yellow in colour with last fluffy bubbles, what little head there was dissipates very quickly.
Aroma: smells of standard American adjunct grains with some corn over the top. Not brilliant.
Taste: the palate is a bit watery for me, not much in the way of flavour. That said, I now live in Queensland where the temperatures and humidity dictate that I need to have a nice cold beer every now and then. Standard grains again here.
Aftertaste: the lack of flavour backs off very quickly which is fine, since this is quite sessional.
Mouth feel: light in body with big carbonation per the American adjunct style.
Overall: an okay sessional beer for the hottest of days, but honestly there are cheaper sessionals around. Corona has dropped in price over the last couple of years by around 25% - maybe people are finally realising that they should judge a beer on its merits rather than its marketing.
Serving type: bottle
