Color is pale gold/yellow. A small white head quickly fizzles with no lacing.

Smells of flat malts, flaccid hops, and overall weak. The only strong aroma is the smell of mediocre ingredients.

Taste has some malt, but honestly, the flavor is more akin to water than beer.

Texture follows closely, thin and watery. At least it's easy to drink, even with it's fizzy nature, but overall, there isn't much here.

Now I know why they recommend this beer with a lime slice, it's to give the beer some actual flavor.


P.S. The only reason I am reviewing this beer is that a friend left it at my house. I would never actually pay for this trash.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a translucent straw with little head that disappears fairly quickly. Smells of adjunct grain and slight limey smell, however, smell is very weak. Tastes of adjunct lager, not much else. The only thing going for it, could drink 6 of these and not notice the light bodied beer with good carbonation going down. Overall, a below average beer.

Had this poured from the Corona Familiar aka Family sized bottle.

A: thin head on a pale gold clear body.

S: wheat, grains and lemon notes. overall skunky

T: mostly pale malts and corn but mostly a little watery with the flavor up front rapidly fading away.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: nothing at all special. the little flavor present is fleeting. Fairly drinkable but there are other beers in this category that are cheaper and taste better.
