3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Del Norte Cinco has a thin, stark-white head and a very hazy, lemon-yellow appearance, with lots of relatively large gray chunks floating throughout. Some lacing is evident. The aroma is of the typical Mexican style, meaning pungent, sweet grain. Taste is of lemons, for whatever reason, with sweet grain and an overall light beer wateriness. Mouthfeel is as expected, light and watery, and Del Norte Cinco finishes crisp, refreshing, highly drinkable, and mostly dry. For a light beer, it’s a sure winner, and for beer overall it’s not bad. I think it’s worth checking out. RJT

Bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with fizzy white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing. Moderate sweet grain aroma. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of shorte duration. Light body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Worth having once.

So you bought a Mexican style lager, what did you expect? Taste is water, corn, hay and grain. Average in every respect.

Bottle from Half Time. Who touts their beer as having "corn sweetness"? Pours dishwater gold with a slight white head. Corn aroma. Med minus body. There’s a strange, but definite bitter, but there’s this not so great sweet aspect. Finish is sweetish with herbal hop. Very different.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with fizzy white head. Not much aroma to speak of and flavor is that of an every day adjunct lager with very balanced hop. Wouldn’t be a bad beer to have by the pool. Not offensive in anyway, it is what it is.

Sampler at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a huge fluffy white head, over a clear yellow body.....nose is minimal cereal, light hint of hops....taste is minimal cereal and very light hops....mouth feel watery, carbonation high. This is very light, with minimal flavor, and little to recommend it. BJCP 5/3/8/4/4
