1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 With a lime, this may be ok to drink, by a pool somewhere. But I am not by a pool, and I haven’t got a lime. This is worse than Mexican swill and right there with American swill. Over carbonated but with no head, almost clear, and tastes of urine

Pours a weak yellow with light to heavy carbonation and an aroma of flour-like corn meal and a slight biscuit tinge. Flavor is typical Mexican lager swill: corny, pilsnerish, and bloated with retarded flowers and bread. Watery. No mas.

Well, dispite all the bad reviews this beer gets, I kinda like it.
you can drink gallons of the stuff with little or no effect, your urine is still clear and little hangover factor. The six pack is great to take to parties cuz it looks pretty and no other fool will drink it. As for the skunky taste? ......how the hell do you get a skunk to fart in a beer bottle anyway?

[Bottle] Pours a light yellow color with some white fizz for a head. Sweet grainy aroma. Wet cardboard, grain, sweet corn flavoring. Weak body. As expected, this won’t be a very memorable one for me.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pour is light yellow with a thin sticky white head...smell is sweet at first with a strong skunky aroma..taste is almost nonexistent...a faint corn and grain sweetness...not really sticky or cloying...just faint sweetness...blech. I don’t even know of words that can describe it...it tastes like a watered down version of a watered down beer...not offensive...but that’s really just because there isn’t anything too offend..other than my sensibilities having bought this bottle...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours pale gold with a small head.
Very faint aroma of cardboard, straw and cooked vegetables. Mind you, at least it is faint.
Sweet, weak taste, with more cardboard, toothpaste and corn.
Very watery, but at least the carbonation is not way over the top.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear bottle. Poured a clear piss yellow with a frothy white, yet quickly receding head. From 2 feet away, all I can smell is skunk. Slowly mustering up the courage to try and smell it. Oh God. It really does smell like a skunk’s cornhole. Flavor is butter, corn, must, basement, rancid ass. Fizzy mouthfeel.

Snagged a bottle of this for 30 cents. Needless to say, i did not have high expectations. Clear golden pour with initial large white head fades fast. Nose of astringent corn husks with rancid sweet vanilla alcohol. Flavor is like a sweet nail polish remover. Pretty bad, but you can get over a good bit, after adding a lime. And the price is definitely right!

Bottle thanks to Cavie. The smell is skunky, grains, salt, lime, and malts. The look is clear, yellowish in color, and has a whitish head. The taste is malts, grains, skunk, and weak.
