Had to drink this last night, it was the best I could get without switching to hard liquor. We were at a tiki bar, sunset, temps in the 80s. Not a terrible setting for a beer like this.
A - Head froths up and doesn't stick around very long, but then again, it was served stadium-style in a plastic cup. Could probably give a better run at it in better glassware. Pale golden typical macro color.
S - Not so terrible, I actually smell some floral hops wafting up from the liquid. Not much of anything else.
T - OK, not bad. Even, slightly sweet sugar-cookie malt, and a present, slightly bitter floral hop.
F - Though it tastes surprisingly good, it's the typical limp macro feel, with a tad more to it than B, M, or C.
D - Had several of these, and they went down easy, so I'd have to say this is drinkable. Was surprised to see that the alcohol weighs in at 6%...more than some other macros, this has the same ABV as DFH 60 Min IPA, and I can't drink 60 Min nearly as quick as I did this, so this is a pretty dangerous macro to toss back pitchers of.

Poured from the bottle into a dimpled mug.
A: Crisp and golden with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Appears to be heavily carbonated, with lots of bubbles rising from the bottom and stuck to the sides of the glass. Looks exactly how I'd expect a tropical lager to look, if not a bit darker.
S: Sort of weak grain with slightly fruity notes. Very small hint of skunking, nothing too offensive.
T: Much like the smell, watery and grainy with slight fruit and even slighter skunk. It's not bad, but it's not really impressive. Not too different from other tropical lagers.
M: Thin with lots of carbonation, true to the style.
O: This is a beer that's very much like other tropical lagers I've had. It's not my favorite, but it's not repulsive, either. It's just kind of there. I've rated it relatively highly because it is, in my opinion and experience, exactly what I expected from a lager exported from a tropical country. It gets lots of points for being true to the style, but loses points subjectively, because as true to style as it is, it's not a style that I'm in love with by any means. Beats the hell out of Corona, though.

Well balanced and refreshing, a good example of the adjunct style. The hops are non aromatic but provide the expected refreshing bitterness that lets you quench your thirst. Pleasant yeasty nose combined with a light mouthfeel and a very clean finish make this an excellent choice for warm weather chillin. At $12 for a 12 pack it's really worth checking out, if we ever get through the winter :)
