Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water; Two-row Barley; Chinook, Mt. Hood Hops; Yeast.
Our original formula. This brew is bright, deep golden yellow in color. The aroma is of sweet malt, lightly floral and hoppy. The flavor reflects its hop bitterness; slightly sweet, and just a perfect balance of two row barley malt, Chinook, Mt. Hood, and peerless hops that culminate to a very clean and semi-dry finish.

Pours gold with a light white head that is lasting quite some time. Lace is fair. Some lemony hops, a slight wet malt or corn aroma. Hmm. Sour hops, slightly old or stale. There is a distinct flavor of corn and sour malts. Not so great. Looked ok, but then I had to go and try it.

This is a terrible Mexican beer. No substance whatsoever. Lots of adjuncts present here, lots of hay and grass, with some wet cardboard as well. Damp, watery malt.

Looks nice, decent head, although I drank the second one from a bottle with a slice of lime, hoping that would help the overall experience. Sweet up front, but not from malt. Rather bland finish, little or no hops. "Felt" a little heavier than Corona. Unique bottle, for that’s worth.

this is probably one of the worst mexican beers I have had the opportunity to try, and I've had many. Bright yellow.. adjuncty, old oatmeal and almost pukish aroma..Big adjuncty flavors overwelm the rest of the beer..so that drank neat, its quite gross. Even with a squirt of lime, the harsh adjunctiness makes it less than enjoyable.

I really don't like Mexican beer, but if I had to choose this and Modelo Negro would be my favorites. It's slightly darker than most mexican piss beers. But it's still watery and nasty. It's ok if you are baking in the parking lot and trying to get wasted at a Jimmy Buffett concert.

This is a little bit more malty than corona and has less of a skunk to it. I'm saying that like this has a touch of skunk where corona has a skunk marrinating in the bottle. It still has a very macro corney/rice taste to it though, so I'll stay away from it.
