A – Straw yellow, minimal to no lacing, transparent, moderate carbonation. Poured into pint glass. Typical 12 oz bottle.

S – Corn and bread. Very pleasant but very basic.

T –Extremely light, mildly sweet, no frills, enjoyable bready taste. Not at all complex but done extremely well.

M – Amazingly crisp and clean. No lingering taste, disappears off the palette nearly instantly.

D – Extremely easy drinking and absolutely session-able. Refreshing but not to the point of implying a watered down taste. All in all, I can absolutely see a person having a few of these at a beach bar or back yard. The only downside is that this beer is prone to skunking. This is partially due to the clear bottle but mainly due to the shelf time. It’s a beer that’s very, very good but I don’t think ever really caught on. It’s a shame too- if people realized how superior it was compared to other macrobrews competing with it for market share, it would fly off the shelves. The only downside is that it’s a tad expensive for what it is. All in all, it’s a great macro.

Crisp, agreeable, light lager that won't weigh you down. Corona-style, though lacking in froth, the greatest appeal would be perhaps a beachy theme or a poolside treat. Pleasant scent that's almost floral, but otherwise lacking in distinguishing characteristics. A change of pace, but not a much of a deviation from other tropical brews.

Not a terrible beer. Has a smooth light flavor. Easy to drink especially in hot weather. Average beer. I would buy this beer again. This is an Island Style lager. Apprecite it for what it is.

This is a below average beer that is trying to be too much like Corona. There is nothing special or great about this beer.
Head is soapy white, taste is beer with lime added for taste and lacing is nothing special.

Looks like a college beer (about the color of healthy urine), smells like a college beer (skunky), tastes like a college beer (how did I ever make it through college?!) I'm giving this a 1 because it wouldn't let me go any lower. I couldn't even finish it.

Very pale almost yellow color with a fleeting head. Aroma is grains with no hint of hops. Taste is very neutral with a thin, watery feel. This is overall a great "lawnmower" beer. Easy to drink on a hot day. It's especially good when you can get it BOGO at my local Publix!

You know what tastes like a lot of nothing? This beer. I can respect the idea that you want to make a beer even lamer than Corona. I mean, that is pushing the envelope. Kudos.

Pours out of a clear bottle. Talk about preconceived notions, but I'm telling you, that is a worthy and accurate stereotype. There isn't much of a beercentric smell going on here. Hops, malt, yeast? Nah. Water don't smell (well sometimes it does). More in common with cooked corn than beer ingredients.

Taste is minimalistic AF, there isn't much to speak of. Mouthfeel is light and airy. Carbonated. Conclusion: They went hard on the corn. Marketing is abound with this one. Dummy it up with some lime and shit.

This stuff hardly has any flavor and is darn near flat. Don't buy this stuff, you'd be better off with bud light than this watered down garbage. The box is says all sorts of stuff about quality but YUCK!
