1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Poured golden with an off white head. Aroma is slightly skunked and malty. Flavor is watery, with some malt and corn. Very generic and watery with no offensive or flavorful tastes.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Pours golden w/ a decent head. Skunky aromas fill the goblet. Light to medium in weight. This brew is not unlike all the other American macros by design.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
2/6/08 From the bottle. Aroma is low on corniness and pils character, but has a strange sweet vegetal/fresh note that is not objectional, but hard to place, possibly a noble hop thatís not as commonly used. Appearance is a light clear straw-gold, with a fairly well maintained white head. Flavor is simple and sweet. Thereís more pils malt character here with low noble hop bittering. Mouthfeel is watery, but not watered down; I hope that makes sense. Carb texture is medium. Overall, better than expected, and very easy drinking.

Bottle = Corona without the usual skunk. Tasted almost flat. It will sell well to brand seekers who donít like beer and just want to hold a nice bottle in their hand at a parrot party. Heh.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Bottle. Straw yellow with a thicker than usual foamy head. Extra points on the appearance because the head stays around until the end-a rarity for pale lagers. Looks like a decent enough pale lager. Nose-usual macroness with a touch more black pepper and dust than the usual variety. Very aggressive nose for a pale lager. Taste-creamy mouthfeel, very soft, low sweetness, macroness on the back end only, medium corn, light plastic, macro, but not in the usual awful macro kinda way. I would definitely not make this my daily drinker, but if I were stuck on some hot humid Caribbean island, I could drink several of these. A little bit of citrus on the back end (I didnít add any fruit).

Wow this tastes like crap. What a total drain pour. I guess I forgot to rate this. Thing pale lager plus weird sweet nasty taste. Mr. Garbage disposal loved it.

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden. aroma is sweet. Flavor is very bland and mild. I will give them the "refreshing and drinkable", so is water. I think water would have been better.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
My computer blipped - apologies if this turns into a double post. Didnít realize it was contract brewed - guess that means itís not really part of the AB family. Anyway, poured with a bleach white head that left some lacing - lots of carbonation bubbles visible, but tasted flat - hmm? Tasted a little sweeter than others in this category and price point - a nice alternative for the Corona crowd.
