UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Though this beer is just a thin, yellow, American style beer, it has a nice subtlety to it. There’s a little bit of a fruity taste that isn’t overbearing. It reminds me of a pleasantly sweet American Standard, which isn’t too bad. It is a much better "tropical" beer than, say, Corona. There are, however, many better beers for the price, it seems. Too bad...

Yellow color, white head, some bubbles. Aroma is slightly sweet. Flavor is a little sweet upfront, a little malty. It has a little more flavor than the standard BMC, but not much. Palate is too thin.

Pours light yellow with light hair care product aroma and flavor. Thinly hopped with thin malty and a light grape flavor.

This is the beer I drink at a bar, when I want to impress the ladies. It's slightly sweet, not too yeasty. It's sort of like Purple Haze's little brother. I like it, MON.

This is the first time I've ever poured it out of the bottle so I could rate it. It's a cloudy gold color that doesnt have a very good aroma. Taste is average not much to report. Much more ffulfilling if you drink it in the bottle while talking about how funny the commercials are

Bottle. Yellow with a nice white head. Sweet aroma (not good sweet). Taste is actually decent compared to beers like bud.

FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2004
A lightly hazy gold color with a thick white head. There is a sweetish grainy aroma, basically a typical cheap lager type aroma. It is sweet up front and it begins with a crisp ending in the finish, but then gets a bit rancid; a bit of buttery diacetyl here. This one is slightly offensive for a macro-swill, though not overly so. A very lackluster beer, and the rancid finish does not help.
