2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
11.2 ounce stubby bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a head that quickly fizzles out into a thin white ring before youíve even set the bottle down.
Smell: Smells like somebody opened up a bag of Fritos! Iíd rather have the Fritos, to be honest.
Taste: Incredibly faint maltiness though with very little sweetness. Thereís a carry over of the corn chips from the disheartening aroma. No real apparent hop presence. Weak, watery, corn-laden finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Drinkability: Hooray Beer-lite! While it probably has a place served up on a hot, sunny beach somewhere, itís just not too terribly enjoyable here in Georgia during the waning days of Winter.

It tastes like Red Stripe, only less so. I brushed my teeth this morning. I have on a blue shirt.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 10.5 oz bottle (yes - I feel jipped!) . Pours a crystal clear very light golden with little to no head - painted bottle redeems it from a 1 for appearance. Aroma has some metallic essence to it. Flavor does not have much more to offer. Same metallic dullness permeates throughout with a hint of seltzer water. The palate is where this really goes downhill - throat clenching harshness as it goes down - very thin as well. Pass on this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz stubby. Pours clear, light yellow. Thin white head. Aroma of grassy hops, very light. Flavor of pale malt, some cardboard box. Very watery, overly light bodied. Ok if youíre looking for something to pound down, not if your looking for flavor. Good for that neighbor that doesnít drink beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle. This is a new thing in Georgia, I believe. Head didnít last but a few seconds. Gold transparent appearance. Aroma is heavy on the grass (no, not cannabis), and there is a slightly sweet caramel malt aroma in there as well. Fairly pungent brew. Goes down easy with the same thing(s) i.e. grassy flavor and slightly sweet caramel malt flavor. Overall, not bad, and fairly smooth. Not dangerously smooth, but smooth enough.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had a ton of these during my honeymoon in Jamaica when the goal was purely to get drunk without adding too many calories since I was gorging on all-inclusive food. Not very good. A bit of corn and a slight sourness. Very little else going on.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Lighter in color and more water presence... otherwise a very similar brew. Corn makes that same sour then sweet feel ending lightly bitter.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap in Jamaica. It isnít nearly as watery as most light lagers and it still tastes relatively close to the original. Not much to it, but itís par for the course with american macro light beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another successful beer run for my dad on a holiday has brought RSL to my lips. Poured out a crystal clear light gold brew, average white foamy cap and more random lacing than more low % brews. Also, a thin cap has been retained throughout the entire sampling. Hey! This sucker only has 35 calories! If I drink ten of them not only will I not be drunk but Iíll also be bloated and disappointed too. 95% grain and 5% sweetness for the aroma. Not totally flavourless but just as I expected: dull, grain and a weak hop. Very gassy, a bit drying that I think Iím confusing with tons of grain. Finishes with a light bitterness. As far as light beers go... well... light beers fín suck balls.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as shown in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Pours a clear golden with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a pale corn malt. Thin mouthfeel and a bit watery but very smooth and easy to drink. Good for how hot Jamaica was that day. Enjoyed several that day.
