UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Pale straw and yellow; the head is the fizziest, whitest cap I’ve seen and it disappears in record time. The nose... well, where the hell is it? Some mild corns, grains, metallic tinges, and some skunky, sulfuric smells. Not very pleasing, and not much of anything at all. Again, the taste is more of the same - lots of carbonation snap for a crisp taste, but there really isn’t much of a taste. Dry grains, corn, and while the bitterness is low, it enters in a very astringent manner. No actual floral or hop flavor aside from that slight bitter bite. Just a touch more flavor than a Corona, I’d say. But now we’re splitting hairs. Thin body, dry finish, heavily carbonated.

Bottle at a party. Pours a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is corn, rice, lager, and some cooked veggies. Flavor is similar with corn, rice, and veggies. Light in body and meh overall.

nudiebear (124) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Poured a clear dark oak/golden, with a short white head. Fairly still on the bubbles. Aromas were malted barley, and the hint of mediterranean spices. Tastes sweet, reminiscent of cornflakes. I would not use the word "exciting" as the official description reads. But there are some good memories attached to growing up with this one. Almost OK

dnicolaescu (947) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL made by Heineken Netherlands. Aroma starts with lots of harsh sulfur, and some malt sugars after a while. The flavour is also light sweetness, watery, zero hops and more water.

I actually enjoy this quite a bit for a Mexican lager. May have been my circumstances when I drank it, oh well. Bring me another and I’ll re-rate.

It has a clear gold color with low carbonatation. Aroma: no presence at all. Taste: too watery to be honest.

MisoW (1804) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2014

fajry (793) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2014
Flasa. Zlata farba, skoro ziadna pena. Vona sladova, jemne zelezita, sladka. V chuti uplne prazdne telo, sladkost, trosku citrus a opat zelezitost citit.

MarcoDL (2398) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Golden (or piss) colored. Not really aromatic. Watery taste of malt and grain. Artificial and boring, but also refreshing.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Bland. Watery. Boring. Credit for being clean, easy drinking, and inoffensive. Went nice enough on a warm afternoon and a spicy sandwich. Would take this over most macro pale lagers.
