12oz can and bottle. Poured a clear light yellow color lager with a small bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma consists of light corn adjunct taste with no aftertaste. Very bland overall similar to the light.

Can @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Craig! My first Costa Rica rating. Clear golden pour with a big white head. Slightly soapy and has a strong cereal grain component. A bit of apple juice, some corn flakes, and bit of seltzer. Kind of your typical bland, light lager with some cereal sweetness. Drinks okay, actually.

A: LIght straw color, white head.
N: Corn, straw and earth.
T: Light sweetness and bitterness.
M: Light body, no alcohol
O: It’s your standard pale lager. Not offensive, not really that great. I preferred the PBR.

Can, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out straw and cereal notes. Flavour is along the same lines - no complexity but leaves a residual sweetness. Meh - not beer intriguing.
