3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 This beer tastes nothing like a corona. The only resemblance is the color of the beer and the clear bottle. You do not want to add a lime or lemon to this beer. Great for the summer when you just want to kick back and relax with a good beer.

Bottle. Pale golden in color with no head. Sweet hoppy and malty aroma. Light citrusy flavor. Corn notes. Thin. Ok

This is Corona, with a differnt label, isnít it? Another summer beer that would be best ice cold.

Bottle at the Charcoal Chef in Woodbury. Poured a clear effervescent pale golden with a fizzy white head. Surprisingly sweet aroma of toffee and apple juice. Flavor is light as expected, but not terribly unpleasant for the style. Notes of toffee dominant, with a slight bit of lime citrus. Not too much corn, which is always a plus. Sure, there wasnít much to this, but it had some pleasant flavor and was inoffensive for what it was.

I agree with most comments that this is a Corona wanna be. Great beach beer as someone mentioned, but nothing I would keep in the fridge for friends. Hardly any flavor.

Iím not going to go into particulars with this one...its obviously an A.B. wanna-be Corona, but truthfully, I like it better than Corona...drank quite a few on vacation in Ocean City, MD...goes down real easy...typical "beach" beer...my Flavor rating was helped by the lime. :o)

Sorry, but Buffett should really stick with music. I knew by the initial glass pour and first whiff that A-B was the brewer (never seeing the bottle). Served in OBX at Millerís. Tauted as similar to Corona (not exactly a winner itself), but I figured Iíd try for a rating. Thatís all Iíll try it for, though. This pours somewhat golden, with a nitrous-induced head that diminishes to nothing. Some sweet corn to the nose. A muddy mingling of some sweetness, citrus and maybe a yeast strain here or there. Very bland, with lots of corn in the finish/aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thin and watery, with no real substance. Moreso than Corona, this reminds me of Tequiza. Itís almost cloying, honestly. So much that although I never drink my brews with a twist, I felt it best to add the lime to finish it off.

12 oz bottle at Margaritaville in the Flamingo casino on the Vegas strip. Served with plastic cup. Yellow with white head. Aroma had a sweet lemon to it. Could of been also was sitting at the bar and a crap load of limes and lemons were right in front of me. Flavor was sweet, corn and some lemon. Moderate bitterness and actually refreshing after walking around for an hour with sincity amber malt still sittlng in the bottom of gut like a rock. Lot better than corona i would say.
