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.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle from Liquor Mountain. Pretty stinky aroma (skunked?), pissy hops. Clear medium straw color. Rasty, rough grain initial / some bad hopping / light extract-like notes / little carbonated punches of sweet malt in final. Thin body/ Overall, fairly unpleasant. Might drink it on a sunny day in Baja with some tamales.

kevnic2008 (11367) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a clear, pale yellow beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt. The flavor is malt, sweetness. The palate is weak and the overall impression is weak.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4597) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle 198 yen from Liquor Mountain. 5% a clear glass bottle leads to a slightly skunky (lightstruck) aroma on opening. A clear gold pour with a foamy white head. The skunky aroma persists. The flavor is sweet sugary & hay/grass/corn/basically grains. A hint of bitterness from the hops but the aftertaste is sweet & sugary. It leaves my mouth feeling coated in sugar, the kind of feeling I get after drinking coca-cola... Blurgh...

Pyobon (1300) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2013
(Bottle - ABV 4.4% Superior Mexican Beer, rather than Original on label - maybe export variant). Clear orangey golden with little white head. Subtle aroma of somewhat grainy malt. Light to medium body with pleasant medium carbonation. Taste of light grainy malt with a citrusy tang. Overall, it’s drinkable.

New Beer Distributors, NY 11.2oz ($2.25): Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is corn. Taste is the same. Really sweet. Tastes like macro brew. I’ve had worse.

rumproasts (5050) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Amazingly unskunked despite the stupid clear bottle. Light bodied, but refreshing. I’ve had a lot worse Mexican beers.

Lemke10 (969) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2013
This pours a clear, pale yellow color with a foamy white head. It has a pretty strong grain scent to it. The texture is thin and the taste is very grainy. Surprisingly decent for being a light colored Mexican beer in a clear bottle. Not much too it, but this is still a much safer bet than drinking the water in Mexico and better tasting than Corona.

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Smells like a frathouse, sweaty, funky, old crusty beer drippings, skunk, Heineken. Watery grain soup flavor, the yeast must have terribly low standards to consider fermenting this.

NordicV (1946) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
En ljus lager med lätt vitt skum. Lätt doft med viss malt och majssötma samt lite inslag av hö. Smaken går i samma linje och hela ölen känns ganska tunn.
