Gold in color with little haze. Lingering one-finger head. Medium hints of grapefruit, pineapple and lime on the nose. Nothing jumps out at me on the palate. Easy drinking, smooth beer without much taste character. Light to medium feel. Doesn't linger long.

A solid lager. Not too malty and not too bitter. Some creamy notes. Pretty crisp but not overly crisp. Only major complaint is that it can be a bit watery and doesn't have the fullest mouthfeel.

Looks like a standard lager with a clear golden color. Not much scent. Tastes like a good American lager. Crisp and easy to drink. Nothing really special, but above average overall.

Usually priced at $8.99 a six pack. It was on sale at Lucky's Market for $4.99. Publix also has it on sale from time to time.
