This light golden beer has very little head. There is not too much to differentiate it from Corona. My girlfriend seems to think it is a little on the sweeter side but I'm not really sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Sweet cream corn aroma, with grain and malt. Taste similar to aroma, bland but drinkable on a hot day.

Hooray, mexican beer. Good with a lime from the bottle during the summer when eating tacos. Typical cerveza.

Served in a bottle against my will, but I can guess what it looks like. Can’t smell it either, nice semisweet lagery flavor with mostly corn esters. Meh. I’ve had worse. Unfortunately as it warms up just a little it gets that stale beer twang that’s been saturated into baseball parks. Gets real bad real fast.

ALLOVATE (2595) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2015
Mild, sweet corn and boiled rice nose. Clear, mid gold with moderate carbonation and a loose fluff of white. Thin, Starchy and pasty mouthfeel with little in the way of hops. Malt is light, cereal-like. That’s it. Summed up quickly. Boring! (35,5cL, BBE 12/15, Big El’s bar, Northbridge)

32 oz. bottle at home with some home made Thai papaya salad. Yum. It pours a brilliantly clear light gold color with a decent white head. The aroma is lightly flowery with some sulfer and old, musty malts. Light corn sweetness. The flavor has creamed corn, noticeable floral hops and a medium sweet finish. No DMS or plastic flavors. Pretty drinkable actually.

Light grain malt aroma. Golden colored body with a faint haziness. head disappears quickly. Grainy corn malt taste. Clean but awkward tasting.

Pours a pale gold with a short white head. It has a mild malt aroma with a flavor of light malt and a crisp finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One word sums it up: boring. Corn and sugar aroma. Quickly goes flat. Taste is mostly water with some metallic finish. Non-offensive.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades almost instantly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is mostly of a bready and crackery smell with a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these smells are some light papery smells and a little bit of grass. Taste – The taste begins with a very light bready flavor with a little bit of caramel and corny sweetness. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade, bringing a more cracker like flavor to the bready taste. All the while, a little bit of grass and earth as well as a papery taste all come to the tongue, leaving one with a rather dry and crisp, but slightly off, lager flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very thin with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the crisp and lighter flavors of the brew the feel is quite appropriate and makes for a more refreshing summer style beer. Overall – Ah… Nothing all that spectacular here. It is pretty much a sub-standard lager, that while light and crisp, really does not have the most palatable flavor profile.
