SDalkoholic (2214) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle from North Gate: Poured a hazy glowing yellow tinted liquid topped with a soft cap of foam. Aroma was faint but did have a whiff of wheaty grain like malts while only a pinch of spicy hop comes through. The flavor of the beer is similar to a Dos Equis Amber but also has notes of spiciness that reminds me a lot of Blue Moon. Easily quaffable beer and its actually an okay beer considering it taste like a macro version of a blonde ale.

Hazy yellow with a light wheaty character, and a pleasant pale malt sweetness, and just a touch of bitterness.

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is bread and a sort of herb/citrus. All rather mild. Med body. Flavor is pretty malty, reminding me of a honey ale in a way. Interesting. How to make an ale taste like a lager.

Sdaniel90 (491) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Clear amber/golden with a fizzy offwhite head. Sweet malt and cereal aroma with a subtle fruitiness. Medium to light bodied with high carbonation. Sweet and refreshing, with a minty, herbal finish, but near flavorless.

Percy0103 (247) - MEXICO - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A golden beer with a medium size foamy head that fades away quickly. Aroma is faint, but I think there is some wheat and some spices. Taste is bitter with some carbonation and almost no astringency. It becomes somewhat flavorless at the end. Aftertaste is very mild. Nothing remarkable.

Strangebrewer (955) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
bottle (gift from my neighbour). Poured clear pale amber with a wispy white head, lots of carbonation bubbles on the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet grainy malt, maybe a touch of citrus. Better body than expected, a light-medium, almost a chewy mouthfeel with average carbonation and low bitterness. Flavour of light malt, bready with a corny/grainy finish. Really not that bad, I’d drink this over a Corona any day.

Bottle; dull dark gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of wet bread. Flavor was mild, but just bready and slightly sweet. Not too good.

12 oz bottle from a friend. Gold and clear with a white head. Crisp and clean with sweet malts and sweet corn. Light body. Not too good, tastes like domestic schwag.

Pours a clear amber, producing a white head that quickly. A mild flavor for an ale; fruity overtones. I found the beer to be surprisingly refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6597) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of pear syrup, cotton candy, and corn syrup. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. Horribly sweet and syrupy. Makes me wonder what the "craft tradition" is in Mexico...fruit soda? Just smells like sugar water and is very hard to drink due to the unrelenting sweetness.
