mjteeters (37) - Issaquah, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Mixed 12-pack of Mexican beer from grocery. Pale yellow, clear with lots of carbonation and thin/filmy head. Light corn smell, very minimal. Watery with a slight corny taste. Light body with a thin texture a slight aftertaste. Nothing to right home about (assuming your in Mexico!) I added a lime after the first 1/4, which helped to at least provide a bit of flavor (re: Corona).

Bottom of the barrel brew reeking with impurities. Light and watery with an unpleasant maltish taste. Not even refreshing.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 4,5 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 22. juli 2014. Gyldenbrun og filtreret Pale Lager fra Guatamala med flot hvid, men flygtig skumtop på 1-2 cm, som svinder til et par mm. Aroma af malt og honning samt hasselnødde-noter. Frisk, lidt sødligere, smag end almindelig pilsner. Lav bitterhed. God frisk mundfølelse med kuldioxid på et medium niveau. Ingen nævneværdig eftersmag, men god som tørstslukker uden de store krav til andet. Dog er smagen med en vis kant.

foyle (232) - Wyoming, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: a 2" foamy white head drops slowly leaving a bit of lacing. Color is clear pale straw with moderate streaming bubbles. Aroma: pretty typical adjunct lager aroma --corn, some white bread dough, a mild hop presence Mouthfeel: light and a little slick, average carbonation with a dry, fairly abrupt finish. Flavor: mild combination of corn sweetness, some grain husks, white bread, a slight paperiness and a hint of hops in the middle and finish. Overall: nothing outstanding but not offensive either. Should pair well with spicy food.

ninecats (131) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2014
Clear pale golden with a white quickly dissipating foam with no lacings. Aroma is old corn, pale malt... I think, very vague. Taste is light malt, water, over-cooked vegetables and corn. Ends wattery. Light body, soft carbo. No real complaints except it is as interesting as a glass of water.

olsvammel (3027) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Mild smell of canned corn and a hint of articifial malt. Very mild taste, close to carbonated water. Actually not horrible, it’s just very boring to drink. It is probably drinkable on a warm mexican beach. But back home I could just as well drink water.

jandd1983 (2529) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2014
It poured a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of corn and grains. The taste was of the same with some malt.

Aroma of malt & bread. Clear pale golden with large long lasting white head. Almost no taste at all. Very light body, thin texture & soft carbonation.

Andy_ (664) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2014
See through pale, almost colourless beer with white head lasting quite well. Aroma has skunked hops, butter and hay. Almost flavorless, dry with cardboard. Thin and watery. Finish is dry with almost no bitterness. Totally unpleasant.

ineedbeer (697) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma has a light, sweet graininess with medium light corn and faint fruit esters. Hints of diacetyl and skunking, less skunk that I would expect but this bottle did come from a box. light vegetable note. Pours a very clear, yellow gold with a medium sized, somewhat frothy head that steadily recedes to a small film. Moderate lacing with faint legs. Flavor is fairly similar to aroma with light graininess and medium light corn notes with some sweetness. Light diacetyl and sulfur with medium light floral esters. Light bitterness. Not much skunking, but a hint of vegetable matter. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty bland and boring beer, but it was free and it is Friday. The malt character is flabby with and dominated by corn. Less skunked than I was expecting which is a pleasant surprise.
