Appearance: very light good color, perfectly clear, small thin head that fades quickly Aroma: bread, not much else Taste: not much of anything at all, bread is all I can get Palate: very very light, no aftertaste at all, dry Overall: this beer tastes like nothing, it’s like drinking cold water with a hint of bread in it, highly drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Multiple bottles at Cori and Greg’s. Clear yellow pour with a big white head. Bready, grainy, limey, slightly doughy aroma. Taste is much the same - cereal, twangy, slightly grassy and lime. Light body with high carbonation. Not terrible.

Draft at Mad Mex. Pale gold pour, thin white head, mild hops, corn in the nose and taste. Nothing going on here. A Mexican Coors.

Typical Mexican lager with about three extra kernels of crystal malt to give it a tad more flavor. I would still prefer this over BMC.

Tastes like a carbonated water. Poor quality beer. Absolutely no aroma. Do not be foolish by the tv commercials

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 If you’re not drinking this beer ice cold with a lime and with spicy food you’re doing it wrong. Spicy hot links on a bun with fried egg and this beer, yum all around.

Speedy_Charly (65) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
Bouteille de 355ml au dépanneur Martin de Plaisance. Liquide d’un beau jaune doré, coiffé d’une mince mousse blanche malgré une effervescence prononcée. Odeur de malt, d’agrumes et de pain. Au goût c’est un peu décevant; c’est sucré, avec une très légère et très fugace amertume en note de fond. Une bière à consommer très froide par un chaud soir d’eté.

Gerbeer (1947) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with very light head. Aromas of perfume and grain and maybe a bit of lime ’cause it was stuffed in the bottle when served. Flavors of paper, corn and grain. I’ll say it’s better than Corona though; goes well with Habenaros, and served when really cold.

Light and unobjectionable. No discernable taste whatsoever at first blush. A little corn, a little sweet, not much else. Pale piss yellow with little or no head. OK brew for a hot climate

Appearance: a clear yellow-golden color with a medium head. Aroma: smells like corn and grass. Tastes like rice, grass and some other grains. Watery.

Lager. Sweet, metallic aroma. Light yellow. Crisp taste, really no distinctive flavor. Overall OK.
