Oh Mann, das ist doch mal duenn. Und wen ich ehrlich bin, dann ist es geschmack- und aromenlos. Ok, etwas Reis und Mais sind drin, der Rest ist aber...nichtssagend. Das Gute: es ist einfach zu trinken.

From carrefour. Playing KB Dark Side, in Legado de Yuste glass. Neutral beer. It doesnt taste nor smell to anything, nor good nor bad. However, my wife likes it and thinks its one of the best beers she has ever tasted (she doesnt like beer much)

Aroma is sweet malts , adjuncts and light sulphur. Taste is bland malts and rice with light basic bitterness on the tip. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

355 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Really strange...sort of herbal/peppery, maybe sort of synthetic/plastic, not light-struck...really odd, light graininess. Palate: Medium body and medium-ish carbonation. Flav.: More grainy that that...whatever it is, a little pleasant hop flavour typical of Noble/Pils varieties; just off-dry with moderate-low bitterness and a not unpleasant malty/grainy finish.

I would love to know what the hell that smell is!

I had it from the bottle. It’s a golden color. The taste is sweet corn, malt, and some honey. It’s pretty carbonated. It’s better than your average macro. It’s refreshing and pairs well with Mexican food.

Very refreshing on a hot day. Great if you are looking for a good compliment to your Mexican dinner.

Je ne m’attendais à rien de particulier. En fait, j’avais hâte d’y goûter puisqu’un ami Mexicain me l’avait chaudement recommandé. Il affirmait que c’était bien meilleur que la Corona. Alors voilà, j’ai goûté. Ça ressemble beaucoup à la Corona, peut-être avec une petite touche un peu plus sucrée. Juste pour dire. Ça se laisse boire, c’est rafraîchissant. À prix égal, je la préfèrerais à la Corona, mais je ne sais pas pourquoi. Peut-être au cas où mon ami Mexicain viendrait faire un tour.

Can enjoyed on a hot day in rural Texas. Gold with a wisp of a head. Neutral nose, little to it. Flavor’s generally sweet. Sugar corn water. White bread. Cheap but not terrible.
