Clear, bright yellow/gold appearance with a medium size white head and minimal lacing. Muted aroma ; some sweet maltiness. Clean, mild, moderately sweet, subdued hop taste. Light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish. Really not bad for a mass produced pale lager.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 Pale straw color with a taller white head that seems to have a hint of yellow to it. Very bubbly brew. Wow this smell just like so many South American lager. Chalky pale malt and grain with just a hints of grass and dry herbs. Actually this has a decent look to it, if it didnít look so artificial. The bubbles donít stop and the head looks like plastic foam. Iíve now stalled drinking long enough. Wow, is this some vapid stuff. Lemon water start with a light medicinal/smoke/earthy finish and linger. Rerate, correct typos

This seemed to me to be a more crisp and sweeter version of Corona. It has a nice corn and malt taste and is very refreshing. Nothing special, but I wasnít upset I had it.

This is truth in advertising. An "original island lager". Light on the eyes, nose and tongue. But, oddly refreshing with just a hint of effort beyond the normal macro lagers. A stealth label as well. I didnít know it was an A-B product. Better than many of their offerings, but I wonít have another one unless I am at a Buffett concert and its free (the beer of course).

Boring American macro pale lager appearance. Boring sweet corn taste, with a hint of citrus.

Appearance was yellow with white head that diminished to some lacing rather quickly. Aroma was rather slight, very like most other macro brews, with some corn and very little hops. The flavor was light, but with more flavor than some lighter lagers, but still not very strong. Has a slight sweetness to it reminiscent of MGD. Very clean finish. This beer is exactrly what it was designed to be: a very easy to drink American Lager with a built-in fanbase in parrot head clubs and other Jimmy Buffett fans. Nothing spectacular about it, but itís not bad as far as American Lagers go.

I loved the beer, when are you going to sell it in Kentucky! The flavor, in my opinion was far better than Corona, no bitter taste.

Bottle. Pours with small fizzy head like soda pop and a clear pale yellow body. Aroma is very faint, but smells lightly of hops...very lightly. Flavor is lacking to say the least and I find nothing to define in it. Finish is clean, crisp, and empty as if youíd just had a sip of fizzy water. I suppose this is perfect if you donít like your beer to taste beery. I give it extra points for having less flavor than michelob ultra. I can appreciate the effort it took to make a beer so mild. One of the few beers Iíd consider putting a lime in to add flavor.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear yellow with not much foam. Aroma is light and reminiscent of Corona. Dry hops and some corn. Flavor is very light and refreshing. Tastes a little better with the lime. It worked well on a hot day.

Nice yellow, corona look. Slightly better than corona in my opinion. Goodfor ahot summer day, best served ice cold. Very little taste. I do like the bottle shape however....
