(Can). Straight from the can on Bob’s deck during Labor Day weekend. Not bad but not a standout within the Pale Lager style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a remarkable brew, as it doesn’t even taste or smell like beer. The stuff just fizzes away before you know it. Really not worth you while, not even ice cold.

Dark yellow color. No Head. A bit more taste than Corona Extra of Sol. Light beer which is best to drink on a hot summer day.

Bottle. Clear yellow color, average foam. Aroma: corn, malt, dimethyl sulfide. Taste: watery, boiled corn, refreshing drink for hot summer.

bartzluke (571) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 22, 2015
12 oz chilled can into a glass mug. Totally clear, yellow, well carbonated, support fizzy head. Nose is not much. A little sweet and a little bready. Body is thin and watery, a little crisp. Taste is bland. A hint of bitterness, a whisper of malt. Not actively unpleasant, bit morning worth drinking.

It is not in line with European lagers in general. But it has good malt fill, sensible bitter hopping and fine thirst-quenching properties. Carbonation is sufficiently soft and able to keep it vibrant and lively while it is easy to drink. Clear European style in its expression, but still somewhat anonymous among the lagers we usually will find below our European skies. Should I some day end up in a lounge chair on the beach in Acapulco, so it is this lager I will choose!

MohaBeer (194) - Lima, PERU - AUG 18, 2015
Amarillo pálido con transparencia, espuma nula, marcado el maíz como adjunto, incluso el aroma a jarabe de maíz indunda, lúpulo nulo. El balance es a malta maltoso y ligero amargor de lúpulo en boca, carbonatación moderada, cuerpo de moderado a medio y final maltoso dulce.

Really not that bad. Expected a much sweeter malty brew but this refreshes. Thank you Xenos stoee.

12 oz. bottle. Pours amber with quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is skunky. Taste is sweet and grainy.
