0.33l bottle. Small bread aroma. Sweer corn, lemon, bubble gum very light hop on middle and metallic finish. Booring beer.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Very bright pale color with storming pearly activity. Weak white 2 finger head, lasting around a minute, with poor legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn, lemon, caramel, and herbal spices. Lots of malt and fruity sweetness with a dash of bitter leafy hops. Slick full body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Light bitter finish of lingering floral hops, smoked skunk, with light syrupy grainy malts and soft lime citrus. Overly accessible, but at least it doesn’t taste adjunct too much. The finish has a nice intensity, very flowery. The flavors are okay, while basic and a little off. The freshness is a bit lacking, but decent. Overall below average quality craft.

330ml 4 pack. The bottle is gorgeous. The golden shiny shit around the neck ..the general phallic vibrator shape and pissy liqud as bright as the Mexican sun shinning on illegals who we gotta build the wall to contain. The name of this beer Modelo makes me think of.a career criminal boy toy gigolo who fucks rich widows before stealing their every cent through deception. Nose of glue, grain,stale hops. It tastes really skunky and gross. Lovely gross cheap recipe bitter finish. OHHH YEAH AMIGO.

Can. Bright yellow color with white head. Aroma of bitter corn and some hop. Taste is crisp and refreshing slightly butter corn.

12 oz can. Pours a light golden yellow color, flavors of grass, corn, light offsetting flavor of musk, decent beer overall. Much better than Corona.

jrmac (334) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Reminds me of a poor imitation of bud light. Borderline undrinkable. Golden in color with little foam. Taste has a harshness on the palate that seems skunky. Will avoid in the future.

Gold, ’oily’ pour. Touch of sweet caramel, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Minimal hops. It’s smooth and thirst quenching (I guess?), but not much of an actual beer. I suppose it could’ve been offensively flavoured, which it’s not, so I’ll be kind.
