Meh. I wouldn’t buy it again but it isn’t horrible. I do not prefer it with a lime. Has a decent head. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Drank from a 12 ounce bottle. Rated based on style.

Look - Clear bottle shows off the disgustingly pale yellow liquid inside. The bottle logo gives a false sense of exotic vacation.

Smell - Nothing.

Taste - Nothing.

Feel - Slightly too carbonated. A bit hard to drink.

Overall - Not good at all. No wonder they recommend adding a lime.

24 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 9/30/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too lemon/pear fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid pale adjunct lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean pale malt/grains and solid earthy hop balance for the style. Nice barley presence, and not overdone on adjuncts. An enjoyable and well made offering.

Medium amber color with a thin, fading head. Light body with a noticable hop bitterness. A touch of graininess and no malt palate to mention. A drinkable, yet uninspired beer. It would do in a pinch.

Just slightly better than the Corona Light, a little more flavor and body (but not much more). Same light yellow color, mild head, fairly high carbonation. Tastes of fruit and grain, and improved significantly when consumed with a lime slice. Crisp finish although slightly sour aftertaste. Good for days at the beach/pool or with spicy Mexican food.

Looks a watered down pale yellow. OK carbonation, Head lasted seconds. Smells like faint malt, cereal grains. Taste is bland and not well balanced. This feels OK. If you were super thirsty You may want this instead of a glass of water. Tastes almost skunked while being fresh. Lastly,clear bottles are really dumb to use for beer. I am sure this does not help the skunk factor.

It looks and tastes like a diet beer but has about 150% of the calories. They may use a chemical to keep down the skunk flavor developed by sun exposure in its clear bottle, but it doesn't quite work. Actually the off skunk flavor that can develop after long exposure may add to its character. Not bad after strenuous exercise iff icy cold. How it got to #10 in the world market is a mystery. i'd rather have a Coors Light with almost 2/3 the carbs.
