Daanminator (247) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Deze gedronken bij de mexicaan tilburg. Bier is mooi goud van kleur maar mist de schuimkraag. Bier heeft een waterige smaak maar ook iets van kruidig op de achtergrond. Nasmaak is fruitig, totaal niet bitter. Ik moet zeggen dat ik dit bier best wel lekker vond, zeker bij het mexicaans eten.

Why would you buy this foul tasting beer, when you can buy better AAL?. In fact, anything by BMC is better than this beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Grain and corn Appearance- pours a golden amber color with a large off-white head. Taste- Corn and grain Palate- Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- A typical macro Mexican import, it is better than Corona.

czar (5340) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
(not yet oxidized - darn - let sit aside for a while in the sun, then voilà) bottle from seb, thanks. pours clear bright gold without a head, dull looking. malt and corn extract, semi-sweet creamed corn, heavy grass, honey, cardboard, very chalky. light carbonation, light body - surprisingly not watery for its abv/quality; relatively dry and bland grassy-herbal finish. had worse, man.

robinvboyer (3407) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Clear bottle, super skunked. Cooked veggies, sharp skunk, cheap grains, light fusel aromas. Mouth feel and carb at good. End is very dry, and lightly bitter. Pretty rough.

TATE (352) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours copper with no head. Immediate skunk aroma with a bit of spice. Thin up front with more hop bite than some of its counterparts. Probably would taste better on a beach in Mexico than April in Maine. This one’s forgettable but at least its drinkable.
