RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Thin, watery, bland, tasteless (even by mexican lager standards), metallic, and more than a little skunky.....

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Typical pale lager. Very little actual flavor, as most of the taste comes from corn/yeast/water elements. Pale yellow color, big fizzy head, and an aroma that is more than a bit skunky. Easy to drink though, as it has the consistency of water.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle (330ml - clear). Poured mostly clear yellow, small fizzy fast-diminishing white head. Aroma of corn, yeast, sugar, vegetable mulch, and some sort of chemical. The usual std int lager suite. Taste was pretty bland, mild vegetal malt, some apple, and slghtly harsh either from stale hops or chemical/sugar presence, I can’t tell and frankly don’t care. Mouthfeel fizzy and watery. About what you’d expect: inoffensive, but drink Dos Equis instead.

reapermedic (26) - USA - AUG 26, 2005
A light crisp almost pilsner type lager. Golden color, ok nose, no head but who cares. Good cold on a hot day, reminds me of Corona. Not my fav, but wouldn’t turn one down either.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Dull yellow color with a diminished to nothing, was white head. Aromas of old grass and wet tobacco. Has a lot of heavy mineral qualities. a light quinine base. I fail to detect malt, let alone something exciting. Its hard to believe that something that not a light or low carb brew could be this flavorless. If you want the low carb taste without the low carbs this one is for you.

Very watery taste. Not really able to smell much of it. Pours pale yellow with no head. Would only drink again if there is no other beer around and I’m in the middle of the countryside in Mexico at a small store.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Pale yellow with no head. Not much of an aroma, but what I could detect was metallic with some notes of dry grass. The taste wasn’t that bad. I was expecting it to be like Corona, but it was less bitter than that. Not much of a flavor, in fact it tasted like seltzer, but at least it wasn’t bitter and overpowering. It didn’t even need a lime. I do give it props for the painted labels.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
pours piss-like golden yellow in color, not much of a head, aromas of corn and water, as well as its lack of an interesting taste, i felt like i was drink the water from a pot i just used to boil corn, horrible.

"It’s hot outside, why wouldn’t you drink this?", said the unsuspecting owner...Because it’s tasteless, reeks of adjuncts, and contains no interesting flavor whatsoever..."Well, you don’t have to yell you know!"...Apparently, I get angry easily in the presence of such mediocrity...
