2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a reddish brown with a medium tan head. Nose is malted but almost has a tartness about it. The taste is much better than the Pilsner Light. Sweetened malty notes along with a corn/rice body. It's not too bad, actually. Finishes with more of the tartness. I'm not sure if this was designed, because the bottle is still fresh, so I don't think it's an unfreshness side-effect. Decent nonetheless.

The beer appears average. Decent head and virtually no aroma. Similar to the lager, the taste has a weird metallic tang to it. Initally thought infection, but the same taste permeated throughout the draft and numerous attempts at other bottles.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a light amber color with a medium head and little lacing on the glass. The aroma is fairly hoppy and a little sweet. The taste is very light and a little sweet with some different spices thrown in to make it interesting. This beer drinks easily and is light enough to down several without any problem. Not sure if they are available outside of the Keys - had mine while on vacation in Key West.

Overall a good beer. Nice hint of sweetness. Plays well on the palate. I wouldn't pay the price it usually sells at, but I'd definitely take a glass from a friend who's buying.

This is good beer if you want to sit on the beach and chill out, while listening to Jimmy Buffett. It's light and refreshing. It's pretty big thing here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with all the boaters. Not bad, but not my favorite.

Good amber color with solid head. Nice aroma with slight hop to it. Heavy on the carbination, with a little roasted sweet malt. A little watery on the finish with slight bitterness to it.

Key West is such a lovely locale, it’s hard to not have one’s ratings tainted by the the atmosphere at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville as I swilled a couple of these while listening to his hit "Margaritaville" on the loudspeakers. Slightly bittered. Considerably more flavored than Key West Lager.

Nice, easy drinkin’ ale. Some light caramel in the malt, especially at the sweet finish. Could use a little more hops for balance.

Got to try this one out in the Ft. Lauderdale airport while waiting for a flight. Gotta say, I was pretty darn impressed. Nicely balanced hops, a little fruity... a pretty good beer.
