2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First I got about 4 oz. served into a tasting glass...and I honestly liked this enough to order a 12 oz. mug of it. From notes.
A: Pours a clear golden color with a one-finger, white-shaded head.
S: What aroma? Honestly, I donít smell anything - no malt, no cereal grain, no hops, no nothing.
T: Much better, actually. A touch of corn sweetness transitions into some lime notes and a mildly bitter, hard water finish. This is actually quite well done.
M: Itís light and a bit sweet. Like many Mexican-style lagers, it could be a little drier. Itís also well carbonated.
O: The aroma isnít much cop (like, at all), but otherwise, itís pretty solid - more Bohemia than Corona, thankfully. This would go great with chips and salsa.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of the sampler. Clean light yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Grainy and bready nose with a light sweetness and grassy wet/hay hop character. Light body with no bite whatsoever. Has that corn-y character to it that Iím not a fan of.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a very thin white head. Decent head retention. Grainy malt aroma. The taste is grass and herbal notes, some citrus, though that may be from the lime on the glass, and pale malts. Thin bodied.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft pour. Golden yellow color with a light white head. Not too sure about this one. Not as skunky as corona. Just not much going on. Light.
