Yet another light Mexican lager. Pours dark yellow with a head that evaporates rather quickly. Light on the mouth. Tastes has a hint of grain and toast, some sweetness, and a hint of hops in the finish. Malt and a hint of fruit in the nose.

MohaBeer (52) - Lima, PERU - AUG 18, 2015
Ambar claro con transparencia, espuma medianamente persistente. Lúpulo cítrico marcado, malta moderada, algunos aminos presentes pero agradables. Tibieza alcohólica, balance al lúpulo con final amargo pero no astringente, buena carbonatación y cuerpo de moderado a moderado alto. Buena cerveza industrial y representa bien el estilo Pale Lager.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
A golden lager with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, rather light adjunct corn malt with light sulfur notes, bad. In mouth, a light sweet corn adjunct malt with light grassy hops, watery and boring. Can from Carulla supermarket, Barranquilla, 1500COP (0.75 cents).

Atom (1821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2015
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 (2654) - 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.
