Pours out a deep clear gold. A big creamy white head tops it, aided by moderate carbonation. The head has great retention and elaves nice lacing. The aroma is pretty weak, with some nondescript sweetness and a faint bitter background note. The taste is sweet. Too sweet, actually. It tastes like corn syrup was added and it's not great. There's a little more bitterness on the finish. It has a decent weight to the body and a decent crisp finish. I wish this one were better.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance:
The head is abundant tan and creamy and sticks around for several minutes before becoming a thin layer of bubbles; it leaves a thin lacing around the glass. The body is a light burnt golden color and is mildly hazy and contains some trifling carbonation.
Smell:
Light malts and fruity aromas fill your nose there is a slight metallic smell as well, but it does smell pretty good overall.
Taste:
Malts and fruits start of the tasting process, hops and some mild earthy flavors finish off as you swallow. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and leaves you with a mild lemon taste.
Mouthfeel:
Light bodied and smooth, but not crisp, you can feel the carbonation act up as it flows across your tongue.
Overall:
Pretty smooth and it makes for a great beer during a hot day, not the most impressive but it is well worth a try.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze, strong effervescence and two fingers of pillowy ivory foam. I really don't know what more you can ask of a blonde ale.

Smell: very light aroma with a little sweetness, a little grain, and no hops. No complexity here, but no big flaws either.

Taste: malt is quite sweet; there is corn flavor here, but it's not over the top. Again, hops and complexity are nonexistent. You could do a lot worse for a blonde ale, though.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and a pretty satisfying creaminess.

Overall: not much going on here, but it is highly drinkable. I can imagine quaffing 8 or 10 of these in the Mexican sun.

probably the best of the three los muertos beers ive had, still far from the best craft blondes out there, but a league better than the other mexican swill. fuller bodied looking bright yellow color to this, with a soap suds head an inch high. a very sweet nose, with some metallics as well, grainy and smooth, simple. the flavor is also a little metallic, but i like the full body on a blonde. it gives the beer a year round functionality that most dont have. the flavor though is quite sweet, like it needs more time to clean up, and the ale yeast gives a stale cracker flavor to the middle of this. not bad at all though, and the best ive had from these guys. their artwork is fabulous, but the beer inside their bottles still needs a little work if it wants to compete in the craft market here.
