Tasty and generally satisfying but far short of a great beer. Love the bottle though.

I was NOT impressed with this, especially after forking out $8.50 for sixer. Poured pee-pee yellow and thin, little aroma, and the flavor left much to be desired. Mouthfeel was average, and finish was lacking.

Looks, smells and tastes like a typical macro, but doesn't even measure up to Budweiser. Drinkable in the right situation, but not worth paying a premium for.

Pours and looks like your typical bad beer. Thankfully it tastes better than it looks. Reminds me of Corona.

Not bad at all. Looks like Budweiser. Pretty decent though. It tastes unlike anything I have had before. Almost no head and even less tapestry. Pretty sweet, but finishes slightly bitter and pretty dry. I enjoyed it, but at this price, almost wish I has just bought some bottles of Budweiser.

This golden lager pours with a thin white head that quickly fades and becomes only a memory, leaving no hint that it ever existed. The smell was also very faint, with a grassy malt smell somewhat detectable. The taste was crisp, and strong on malt sweetness. The finish was a little dry, like flat champagne, and tasted very acidic. It made my throat feel like I was drinking strong lemonade. The mouthfeel was adequate, but the finish was too dry.

I will never drink this again! I got suckered by the commercials but all I can say is that I will drink Budweiser over this any day, and I don't like Budweiser. The bottle looks great and I saved one to use as a vase but the beer pours a thin pale yellow with a 1/2 second white head, no lacing, and gives off a chemical and rice aroma that lingers in the aftertaste and further offends by being overcarbonated. I won't drink most macros or light beers but I imagine they all to taste like this. The sad thing is that I wanted to like this beer because of the advertising and the bottle design. If this was the only beer at a party I would spend the evening drinking water mon.

Color, aromoa, taste palate, and finish are the same as any US Macro. I had it on a cruise in the Carribean. When served cold, and you're having a great time, it's a good session beer.

Straw colored with a short-lived white head. Some hops and malt in there. A decent beer on tap while in Jamaica, but it's pretty funky here at home.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Bright straw color and sudsy head. Hop fragrance and funkiness plus sweet pale malt aroma. Fruity malt body and a slightly sweet finish with some floral hops. Palate is light-bodied, somewhat watery, and fizzy. Inoffensive but totally lacking in zest.
