Beach party beer. Typical lager. Nothing spectacular. Mildly hopped. Good when you are standing on the beach and it's 95 degrees.

Sitting on a pier by the water, watching the stars twinkle above in the Key West sky, one tends to be more forgiving of a wimpy lager than they might otherwise be, so I’ll try to be objective. Mild and watery. Supposedly discontinued, yet I found one after a search.

Light gold, small head - not much retention, some lacing. Malts are sweet and soft. Palate is very watery around the edges. A nice hop presence, but at the finish the sweet malts hang on and become cloying. Maybe I need to be in Key West enjoying this and not Cleveland. Thanks for hauling this up north for me, Mike!

i’m not a lager fan, so my ratings obviously will reflect that. i definitely prefer this brewer’s ale over their lager. there was no aroma per say, and it was pretty watery/light on taste.

Skunky lager aroma, slightly malty, slightly hoppy. Not a terrible beer, but nothing to get excited about either.

Thinner than the thinnest macro lite, although there’s a suspicion of malt a few seconds after I swallow this. We need to organize a protest; hundreds of beer geeks camping on Key West’s brewmeister’s lawn until they put flavor into their products.

Light, weak flavor, good for playing drinking games while stuck in your Florida hotel room due to the fact that its been raining all week. Not much else to say about it.

A nice tropical lager without that crappy Corona-piss taste. Well rounded and flavorfull

Very pale. Smooth, light Cascades hopping, but generally flavorless. Not undrinkable, but not for the afficianado.
