Bright golden straw pour with a thin layer of stark white head, medium clarity. High carbonation, lively mouthfeel and higher than average thickness, finishes with a soft numb cold feeling. Mellow grainy aroma, a bit of sour lager yeast but not very sweet. Kind of nice smelling overall. Taste has a pert carmel sweetness, underlying light metallic hop, subtle lager yeast. Robust and refreshing lager.

Ugh... Watered down malt extract... Carbonated corn water.. Bad even in a segment of bad beers.

Clear, pale gold pour with a small, white head. The aroma is mostly corn and a little stale. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a slightly dry finish.

Decided to drink this for Cinco de mayo. Poured into a glass. You instantly smell skunk. Eww. Almost no head. Tastes a lot better than it smells. Just a sweet corn blah taste. Will be adding some lime wedges to help make it through my 3 bottles.

Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Golden color. Light malt and a little sweet. Just something for a party or Mexican restaurant.

Can - Pours golden amber with a filmy white head. Nose is honey, light grain, corn, and really nothing else. Taste is grainy, sweet, and a little bit sharp with a corny finish. Thin and slick with ample carbonation. Really gross and sweet.

Watery! Nothing more to say really. A little beer flavor in the finish maybe? Blah

My first beer in Mexico. Tastes great with lime and salt. It is light but has good flavor
