3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in a mixed case from the Woodland CostCo. Pours a sort of coppery gold (changes in various lights) with a white head. Aroma is mild hop and caramel. Quite mild. Med minus body. First flavor brought grape to my mind. It is bitter, and dry, but grape? That concept persists.

Poured from 12oz bottle into regular pint glass. Light yellow color with medium white head. Palate is mildly effervescent and smooth nice taste with no real bitterness. Reminds some of Corona. Overall like it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A slightly hazy amber pour with an immediately dissipating white head; corn syrup aroma; corn syrup taste with a trace of grassy hops, but not enough to add any bitterness. A poor beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours golden, thin quick dissipating white head. Aroma is grainy, a bit of lime / citrus, macro smell. Taste is grain, a bit of grass, a bit of barley and a somewhat metallic aftertaste. Very bland. Light body, highly carbonated. This is a chug it and get it over with beer.

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.
