1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
My wife bought this so here it goes, the clear bottle is nice, thats about the best part of the beer. There was no aroma to speak of but the color was a nice deep gold. I was expecting at least a little somthing from the taste, but it was not to be.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle. Clear yellow color, medium carbonation, medium white head. Aroma is korny, grainy, and somewhat plain. Taste is not too good, man. Aftertaste is disappointing, and flat. I don’t have any idea what they’re talking about with the "island lager" moniker - it seems like macrobrew marketing.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
355 ml bottle from Pompano, Florida. Pours a deep clear gold with a short white head. Aroma is corn and hops but weak. Taste is card board, wet plastic and well water. Palate weak and not too offensive.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright clear yellow. Has a straw/corn like aroma. Tastes about the same. Not much for flavor. Mildly sweet at best with a subtle clean finish. Good to swig down on a hot summer day perhaps. Not too exciting but nothing offensive about it either.

pours a straw yellow with a small head that dissipates very quick. the aroma is very sweet malts, wet grass/ the taste is the same. this beer actually surprised me, i did not expect much but found this beer to be better than most macro produced adjunct lagers.

Nothing to see here, folks. Just another boring lager with little taste. Move along.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color is clear yellow with a alarge white head, and the aroma blends dough yeast, corn, and light malts. The taste is mildly sour, and the palate fuses a light body, thin and slick texture, abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation, which is somewhat complementary to the taste.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color, no head. No aroma. Drinks very easy. There is a minimal hoppiness to it, but no strong flavors. Great beach beer, and easily a better choice than bud/miller lights. I enjoy these every summer, but once the temp drops under 85, it’s time to drop this brew. I highly recommend in the hot months, because let’s face it... No matter how much you love strong delicious beers, nobody wants to drink Sam Adams on the beach.
