Not awful but certainly not good! Pours a hazy gold w/ a big white head. The aroma is bready, malty, & has nearly a weird sour note to it. The taste unfortunately isn’t nearly as complex. It’s pretty clean & uninteresting while being slightly thin on the palate. Pale lager ehh.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, into a pint glass. Not bad for a Mexican lager, easy drinking and pretty smooth. A bit bland. Light bodied. Crushed it.

Yes this is pretty bland and watery with some corn syrup. No head at all, which is pretty woeful. Guess it tastes good frozen on a hot day in Mexico.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden, minimal white head, no lacing. Aroma of grain and barley. Taste is bitter, of grain and straw, very watery. Not great, didn’t like it, if you are looking for a pale lager for a hot summer day there are quite better options out there.

Headbanger (3873) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of corns, grains, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not as bad as I was expecting it to be.

foyle (394) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Appearance: pours a 1" white head that recedes quickly with some mild lacing. Color is a clear light gold with plenty of carbonation present. Aroma: mild aroma of lightly toasted barley and some corn sweetness. Mouthfeel: light and crisp, slightly papery with a dry finish. Flavor: corn and sweet barley dominate the flavor, maybe a hint of hop spice in the finish. Overall: a pleasant, drinkable light lager that pairs well with spicy Mexican food.

From a Quart bottle poured in a glass. Clear urine appearance. Flavor is crisp and watery. Light grain malt. At least it’s not disgusting and doesn’t have any weird adjunct or metallic flavors like a lot of cheap beer. Acceptable lawnmower beer, but there’s better ones out there for the money.
