RBSG 2008. Aside from a flashback to that damn Amigo car commercials with that annoying song this wasn’t that bad. Pours gold, very clear, with a small white head. Balanced session lager, doughy in the malts, a touch grainy, earthy hops with a light spicy touch to them.

San Clemente: Yikes! A "mexican lager"? That doesn't sound too promising. However, my concerns were dispelled upon sipping this pleasant lager that's full enough in flavor and is also lightly bittered, unlike its Mexican brethren. Gracias, amigos.

Bottle. A golden color with a diminished white head. The dusty, wet basement, cereal aroma and flavors are always a little more robust and subtle in craft brew bad lagers but evident nonethelss. Smooth and as expected.

This brew pours with a very, very pale yellow body topped by a thick white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, malty and grainy with grassy hop notes. The flavor is slightly sweet yet well balanced with bitterness, grainy and grassy. Light bodied, smooth yet dry.

Not a big fan. Draft at Hamiltonís. Not much aroma. Orignially told the barkeep "no fruit" half way through, I asked for the lime cuz there was now way I was gonna finish the brew without it. Not very good.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 On tap at RBSG at Lost Abbey. Pours a light copper color with a small off-white head. Aromas of lightly roasted barley and bready yeast. Tasted of malted grain and molasses. The mouthfeel was light and a bit astringent. Finish was short and dry. Overall: A very sessionable pale lager. Very tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber gold, with a small off white head. Smells of lively crisp grain, caramel malt, and a subtle hop presence. The flavor is of pretty malty characters, nothing too exciting, but decent for a pale lager. Pretty easy drinking, real smooth and fairly flavorful for the style. The grain isnt overpowering and there wasnt anything really offensive about it. Just simple is all.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Rerate 10/30:07: On tap at the Lost Abbey. Much better this time. Not bad, pretty drinkable, certainly low in flavor and aroma. I understand why they use this for blending, because itís so light. I find it extremely interesting that if you throw Brett yeast into this, and put it into a barrel it becomes a great sour beer. 6,1,5,3,10: 2.5
6/12/07: Wow. Super skunk. Itís so skunky itís interesting. Glass from a growler a friend got. Mild, and somewhat easy to drink, but kind of off vegetable or corn flavor in the background under the watery flavor. Light yellow color. Little head. This glass is pretty bad for pale lagers. 1,1,3,3,6:1.4

Clear yellow glow of brightness, with the littlest of heads. Smells like the air around it, as it smells like little if anything. Does not taste skunky, lime had the most taste, so for a mexican lager, all i can say is that it did little for me, yet it didn't skunk me out either.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden lager colour with minimal head. Aroma is light malts and a little lime. Fresh and citrusy flavour but a tad thin. Still like other Mexican beers it goes down well on a hot afternoon.
