32 fl oz clear glass bottle with twist off cap served into a conical Guinness pint glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are very low. Acquired at a local Mexican corner mart.
Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Paired with nachos and pretzel sticks.
A: Pours no head whatsoever. Colour is a clearly overcarbonated transparent straw yellow. In no way appealing. Even if you pour it extremely vigorously, the thin pathetic "head" is gone within four seconds.
Sm: Straw, barley and water. Water is dominant. Stale. A light strength aroma.
T: Straw, clean barley, and water. No alcohol or yeast comes through. Extremely simple. Badly balanced, but it could be far worse. Luckily, water isn't the dominant taste. Built very poorly, but it could be argued it's to style. Fortunately, it isn't littered with cheap malt like most cheap Spanish lagers. A bad boring taste all around, but far from awful.
Mf: Smooth, wet, and sharp from overcarbonation. Too thick for the lack of flavours. Doesn't really suit the flavours. Below average to be sure. Gets in the way of the drinkabiity.
Dr: Hard to enjoy on account of the low quality, but easy to quaff when you have to. Hides its ABV only generally decently. Really a garbage beer. I'd never get it again unless it was dirt cheap on draught (and Im sure I'll find it somewhere where it is). It's better than some beers in the style (I'm fishing for good things to say about it here). I would never recommend this crap to anybody. It's more barleywater than it is beer.
