look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

bought a 24 oz. bottle. opening the cap comes out very very little smoke. The bottle is clear so its open to being skunked but this one was not skunked surprisingly. pouring this gives less than a one finger head thats very very thin and dissipates quickly. The head was white before it disappeared entirely. The body has a golden bright color to it with no bubbles existing after the head.

The smell is not as good as I would have hoped (having tried it before and thought I remembered a more robust smell to it, but maybe I drank a different beer then). The smell is of corn and grain. Definitely a smallish-ly prominent smell of corn. The corn shows in the color of the body of course. you kind of have to waft the smell to actually pick anything up.

The taste is not what I remembered last time I drank it. I can definitely taste corn and grain and maybe some malt. I am not drinking it with lime right now so maybe my judgment is impaired.
From what I remember with lime in the beer it tastes pretty nice (like a 4.5 taste). The rule of "no fruit in beer" is invalid here as lime makes this one taste better.

The mouthfeel is okay buts it kind of carbonated. OVERALL its an okay beer by itself. If you want a light corn tasting lager this one is good. One word of advice: drink this beer with a slice of LIME (or lemon) because the taste of the lime makes it a nice beer to drink every once in awhile.

Rating the beer by itself I cannot think of who its catered to other than to the people who drink it with limes. Rule of thumb: don't try it without limes.

and if a beer is not good unless its with fruit, it cannot receive a good rating.
