2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a clear golden color with moderate white head but not much lacing. Aroma has grass. corn and lots of sweet bready malts. Flavor is about the same. Taste is on the sweet side without anything different in the finish. Body is light with average carbonation. This one is malt-forward and pretty forgettable except for the label art.
I saw 2 shelves of Dia de los Muertos at my local Walgreen’s for the last 3 months, but didn’t pull the trigger at their $10.99 per six pack price. Today, they decided to blow these out at $4.49 per sixer. At 75 cents/bottle, it makes a good lawnmower beer, but it’s still winter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber with a lasting head. Sam Adams glass may be keeping the foam going. Smells old...off...almost light struck. Tastes like the aroma. Off hop or age edge, some sweetness and unsatisfying Malay flavour. Tastes like a classroom example of something wrong.

Bottle. Golden pour. Really doesn’t taste like anything. Hard to comment on specifics, because there are no specifics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden crystal clear. A bit hoppy aroma with a touch of corn tortilla and some sweet malt. Clean and crisp tasting, citrusy followed by a dry finish similar to a lager. Overall, decent... a bit better than I was expecting.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Rated on 7-06-2014 (Bottle) This beer has a large smooth off-white head, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, some corn, grainy, and semi-sweet. The flavor is sweet, malt, corn, and grainy. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer is very light bodied and is a lawn mower beer with very little character and flavor to it. This beer is not a beer I recommend and is a beer I have no interest in drinking again.
