355ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
4 Sweet buttery corny aroma. Vaguely beerlike, but some definite flaws
1 Pale gold fizzy - would have been 2 if it wasn’t in a clear glass bottle
3 Odd sweet chemical retronasals, papery. Bland sweet pale nothingness, maybe mineral water, with a dash of pencil sharpenings from cheap hop extract.
2 Watery palate, fizzy. Finish chemical and papery. Later a little corny
5 About what I expected from Corona. A long way from good unless you’re desperate.

Clear gold with a fast disappearing white head. Husk aroma. Taste is light corn with a metallic finish.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12 oz. Bottle. I love Mexican food so much. Why does the beer have to be so crappy at every Mexican restaurant? Once again I tried this horrible brew at a Mexican restaurant, and once again, I found it to be a very light, faint grain, piss yellow, mockery of a brew. I laugh at the suggestion that this is a pale lager. Ridiculous.

Light pour with funky aroma. Similar to Corona, which is not a good think. Lingering stale finish. No thanks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (3065) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a small puffy white head. Smell is of grain and corn. Taste is also grains, corn, and watery.

Idiosynkrasie (6070) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy to macropore, diminishing, white head. Hard to detect aroma is strawy, corny, hints of orange. Taste is minimally sweet, hints of grain and straw, a sourish touch of citrus fruit.

Plovmand (7716) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden with a fizzy head. The corn spread out of the bootle as soon as I opened it infecting my living room. Taste bitter sour corn. Artificial carbonation. True badness! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Ølfestival 2013. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Sweet and malty aroma of corn. Malty flavour of corn with notes of caramel. Watery.

Typical Mexican beer. Light on everything but when you just need something cold to drink it hits the spot.

Bottle@chiquitos, wednesfield. Orange yellow beer with no head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweetcorn and some floral notes. Taste is same with a touch of hop bitterness. Overall quite crap really.
