$1 single from the aforementioned gas station. Usually don't buy light lagers under any circumstance buttttt gotta try em all.

Pours a dehydrated piss yellow with a large bone white head as expected. Carbonation is heavy, lacing is pretty decent at the end of the swill.

Smells like your typical light lager though red stripe has also been far more corn forward in my opinion

Taste follows suit. Super corny with a mildy bitter lime presence for whatever reason.

Feel is light and watery as you'd expect but it swallows easy and luckily it has no skunk.

Overall I assume this was $1 because it was old and didn't sell or perhaps others from the pack had broken. Dunno but for $1 there isn't much to complain about. There are better adjunct lagers out there.

Had a few everyday for six straight days wile on my honeymoon in Jamaica. Very light yellow color when poured. Very light in the mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and with the 3.6abv it was perfect to sip on all day and I will be drinking again if I make it back to Jamaica.
