Ok so it is a clear nice body with a light gold color, but it looks glassy, and doesn't leave any lacing or anything.
The aroma is green vegetables, lots of corn, light grains.
light watery corn, dusty grain, lots of cheap adjuncts, little hop or malt flavors, low carbonation, thin mouthswish.

Poured half out, not worth the calories.

Nothing like reviewing a beer from Jamaica in December in Ohio. The appearance is light. It smells like most American lagers. Taste is grain, and some sweetness, not a lot of bitterness. Mouth-feel is very light. easy to drink. A better choice then many in this class.
