Not bad for AB. I’m still confused as to what an "Island Lager" is, but add a lime and this isn’t a bad beer (assuming that quality and flavor are too important). If you have cheap company and need something to get the party started, try a LandShark.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 This beer has terrific pale yellow color. It pours as mostly head into the glass since its highly carbonated, just like mass produced poor quality beers. It smells like honey, oats, and sugar. It has a sweet sugary cereal grain taste too. It is however inexplicably appealing on a hot summer day or when you’re on the Florida, and perhaps even the Texas coast.

Yellow pour. Bland corn aroma. Bland corn flavor. probably goes well with a hot saturday afternoon lawn mowing.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 I drank this expecting a knock off Corona taste. However, I was suprised. It is about time AB put out a decent brew. Best served very cold and with lime. Very crisp, clean, and refreshing. Perfect for a hot day. Very drinkable. I reccomend giving it a try.

12 oz bottle at some BBQ place. Is this supposed to be an American verison of a Mexican Lager? That was the feeling I got here. Shoulda used a lime.

Smells like urine, but doesn’t taste like it. Don’t ask me how I know that. Doesn’t have much taste at all actually. If you don’t like beer, you’ll probably like this because it doesn’t taste like beer and it is easy to drink as well as very crisp with high carbonation. You will be able to drink it very quickly and get very drunk, so be careful.

This is a classic cervaza. Everyone says we should look forward to it being next to corona soon. The fact is Id rather have Corona. Plus its overpriced.

Bottle from the First Houston Tasting
Sorry to say I offered this putrid mess... Pours yellow like old man urine with an aroma of retarded skunk piss. Flavor is similar to what one would expect while chowing down on the corn used for Purina dog food. Pure water on the tongue, except you’ll get drunk drinking too much of this crap. Fins to the left, fins to the right, and if this was the only beer in sight I’d slit my throat.

Despite the low ratings here, the fact is it has taken off in test markets and will rollout nationwide next year. People have told Anheuser-Busch they’d driven 100 miles to get it! Coastal markets can’t keep enough of it in stock. So all the beer snobs better be ready to see it right next to Corona in EVERY beer store in the country.
