A light beer with a skunky taste similar to Corona. A very light beer and easy to drink, Jimmy Buffet.

Jimmy Buffett has sold out to the BIG BOYS!!!!!!
Not a bad beer for a hot afternoon, even if AB is the Brewer and not the Son of a Son of a Sailor. Looks nice, taste is easy on the mouth. This is a real session beer.

as someone that lives close enough to Jax to hear a radio commercial for this beer every day, I figured I should give it a whirl. Donít be fooled guys, this isnít a local Jax brew, there just happens to be an Anheuser-Busch brewery in Jax. Donít be a tourist, skip this one and grab a Corona if you are into that sort of thing.

Got this on draft a couple of weeks ago by mistake in New Bern, NC where the waitress told me it was a "NC microbrew". She probably thought nearby Jacksonville, NC was the only Jacksonville in the world. Took four gulps (tried to give it a chance) and sent it back. The macro-loving friends I was with even sampled and agreed: send it back even if you have to pay for it.

I used to think people were being stupid when they called some light beers "goat piss" but then I drank this. GOAT PISS is the perfect description. To be fair, I was cleaning my apt while drinking this so it was not a complete waste, but still, it was not a very tasty beverage....

Not bad, its more of a novlety then anything else. I compare it to Corona, and I tend to like Corona. Only problem is that it is not easily available in Northern Virginia. Its not heavy like a typical lager.

Anheuser-Buschís attempt at selling Corona (or the superior Sol). So theyíve attempted to dupe people into thinking itís a "Jimmy Buffet" beer. Of course itís his "favorite" - heís been paid to shill it out by slapping his name on it for a quick buck. Personally I donít think heís had it. It tastes just about like Corona, and thatís about that.

Fake Corona. Tricky marketing; looks like a "local" Florida beer. JBís Margaritaville logo is a clue that it is a fake. Like most things in life, go with the original.

I did not know this was an AB product. This is a mediocore beer and kind of crappy. pointless, other than to fool people in Florida into thinking it was kind of local. Like me.

Sparkling gold, foamy white head. Nose was full of grassy sweet corn notes. Flavor was one in the same. Light bodied, medium carbonation, sweet finish. Typical A/B crap...yet....would be fine to chug on a hot beach day I suppose...
