Bright dark straw/light golden color with moderate activity. Slightly foamy white 2-3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with mediocre legs and swirl reaction. Flavors of sweet grains, lemon, caramel, and floral hops. Slick medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Slightly oily but still well bodied. Light strength finish, grainy and a bit flowery but not that much. No adjunct feel. Great freshness and well balanced. Solid brew overall, very good quality craft for an adjunct compared to other popular macro brands.

A- This looks like your typical AAL, with a typically yellow hued coloration, super white head that starts out around 3 fingers thick (to my surprise!), but does quickly fizzle out with vigor.....it is noisy and before you can blink there is no head to be found. The liquid is super clear, and has many aggressively rising columns of big bristly looking carbonation. There is really no lacing to speak of as well, but rather a watery looking film that covers the inside of my glass as I swirl the brew around. Nothing groundbreaking here.....just an average looking macro style lager to look at.

S- Well, this certainly smells the part initially, with sweet boiled corn being upfront, however, if one tries to be fair to the beer, there is some caramel malt presence, along with dry unmalted grains. I will admit that there is a small amount of robustness wafting into my nasal passage, but at the end of the day, adjuncts and little to no hop finish is present.

T- Wow this is syrupy sweet! Corn syrup, overcooked corn and/or rice porridge and an excessive amount of maltose is present on the palate.......the finish is cloying/sticky with no hop bitterness.......really not much else to say here, but I would say in terms of overall flavor, this fits an above average grade, because quite frankly, there is some actual flavor happening here!

M- Light bodied, heavily carbonated and easy drinking best describe this one. Would I buy this again? Hell no! Would I drink this again? Why yes!......it's not a bad beer but it is nothing by far that one would or should write home about....for an AAL, it does the job and on a hot day I will not pass, but once this is 6 pack is gone my fridge will be one happy appliance!

Look: Urine-dark yellow with virtually no head.

Smell: A ton of yeast and corn, like a stronger Bud.

Taste: Very faint corn, a tiny bit stronger than Bud Light. Incredibly boring.

Mouthfeel: Decently carbonated, thin as water.

Overall: I know beers like this are supposed to just be for quickly drinking five of them without care at a beach bar, but there's much tastier options for that.

The taste similar to some of your Mexican pale lagers. There is some corn syrup there but it's not there excessively they try to sneak it on you. The corn syrup taste starts to manifest itself as the beer gets closer & closer to room temperature. I don't care if it is a little or a lot I don't want to taste any of that junk. Your going to need yourself a lime & shaker of salt for this one in Margaritaville. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range

Pleasantly surprised

Also was surprised to see this advertised as a corona type light lager, best served with lime. Never would have guessed such. Bought it in the can and poured and sipped as if any old macro lager swill.

Again. Pleasantly surprised. More complex than expected. Kudos.

This pours a light, bubbly yellowish color with too much carbonation and little lacing. I thought this would be good due to the high price. But, it is weak and has a watery, tinny taste.

My niece from Florida brought this to our house without my knowing it. Got a little high one night and thought I'd try it. It's as if I'd opened a bottle of club soda into which someone had dropped two drops of beer tincture. For fuck's sake, Florida. Have you not lowered the collective U.S. intelligence enough without foisting this shit on unsuspecting uncles? Damn.
