16 ounce can into lager glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lime, citrus zest, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of lime, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lime, citrus zest, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy/spicy bitterness and citrus tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of lime, citrus zest, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of lime, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering hop/zest bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice fruited Mexican lager. All around good robustness and balance of lime, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Very well balanced between all flavors. Style was labeled as a Vienna from the brewery. I was expecting more malt presence, but this was nicely enjoyable and well made all around. Would be a great summer beer, as was intended. ebone1988 (2405) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2018
