Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with a finger of head. It looks nice.
It smells like corn, rice and crayolas. Weird.
A nice sharp bitterness at first, mellows out to a sweeter finish. Simple but fairly good.
Crisp and clean texture, moderate carbonation.
A descent adjunct lager. NelsonPR (23) - MIlWAUKEE, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Not a pilsener...more like a pale lager, smell of cereal , corn, hay, and a couple of stale hops.. taste is more of the same, with a sticky palate...average cutting grass beer. WVHouseofBeer (1106) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2012
I don’t know how this could be called a pilsenser. It’s just another run of the mill pale lager. Between this and Medalla I would rather have Medalla because it is cheaper, though they are both garbage......... Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2011
It reminds me of a Heineken, but I think I like Magna just a little bit better. scottw86 (1179) - Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Poured yellow and very clear. Head was small and white, but faded quickly. Aroma is sweet with some grains and pale malts. Taste has a light sweetness, but it isn’t too syrupy. Some cereal flavors to go with the sweet corn flavors. Overall not too bad, very drinkable.

Hate to say it, but this is not very good, not much going on at all, just some bitter aftertaste. Only drink if ice cold on a summer day and there are no better options. chrisrhoppe (1) - PUERTO RICO - AUG 2, 2011 does not count
Pours with pathetic fizzy head that dissipates within 30 seconds, absolutely no lacing. The beer is light golden straw colored and has only the occasional bubble or two creeping like a deflated balloon to the stale flaccid top
The smell is of hay, straw a faint touch of malt with an even fainter wiff of earthy musky hops. Smells not much unlike an old molding book.
The taste is not much unlike the smell, straw and musky sour hops. The mouth feel is completely off balance, starts sweet and malty then just ends up sticky and chewy in the back of my tongue, the only way this beer invites you back for another sip with to wash the shit of your tongue, I think I’ll stick to water though.
Not a big surprise here, for bias sake I tried this next to a Santo Viejo and a Prima Pils and the difference punches you in the face. Anyone who was ever enjoyed or brewed a craft beer should take offense to this shameless take on a “premium” beer. It’s time to fight back, the word craft or artisanal needs to stay with real brewers, not allowed to be used by heartless robotic corporate breweries.
