Really piss poor appearance, this is hardly qualifying as beer, they really skimp on things like malt/barley hence the super weak barely yellow appearance. Aroma is lacking, I mean its not terrible, but it doesn't offer anything beercentric.

I mean, this is the rare occasion where I would say you 'need' to add lime to a beer. With the resurgence of gose and berliner weisse, not to mention xpas, session ipas etc. . . even the excuse of a hot day by the beach doesn't work or justify drinking this.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. No lime wedge. Sampled on August 11, 2016 when it was 96 degrees in my backyard.

Straw yellow pour with a quick lasting white fizzy head. Gone in seconds. No lacing.

Toast, grass, and corn grits are the main characters on the nose but nothing jumps out as dominant.

Light and watery body.

The taste brings out the same toasty sweetness one would expect from a light adjunct lager but it really is rather dull. Nothing much to highlight about it. But look at my first sentence - 96 degrees!

Possibly the worst beer ever made. Definitely the worst that I have ever tasted, including my 2 failed attempts at home brewing. Had this at a friend's cookout, straight from the bottle. Got to the party late, so all that was left was this and Coors Light. Made a decision that I'll never drink another Coors Light long ago and can't stand regular Corona, so what was I suppused to do? So, I tried Corona Light. Makes Coors Light taste rich and flavorful. Skunky Mexican piss in color and taste. Wow. Probably the worst thing I have ever put in my mouth. Lime doesn't even hide the skunk piss flavor. After 2 sips, dumped it in the bushes. Only took the 2nd sip because I couldn't believe the 1st one was that bad. It was. I drank Gatorade for the rest of the party.

Absolutely brutal beer, heavily carbonated, offensively flavorless, ridiculously overpriced, crisp to mask flavor, but depressing in lack of quality. A great compliment to "Extra."
