500ml can. Lager glass. Sugar & cabbage as tap is removed. Bright straw color, filtered appearance. White forth creates a correct crown even though not very well attached. Sulfur, moldy & cardboard odors. Crispy & grainy upfront. Light to medium body. Medium moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Fizzy & spicy palate. Metalic hues, grainy malt flavor linger into a slight bitter finish touched by sweetish artificial notes.
Serving type: can

On tap into a pokal-style glass.
A-The beer is pale, light-golden in color and clear. A good bit of carbonation is visible and props up the short, white head for a while. A wisp or two of lace remains on the glass after the head fades. Pretty standard-looking adjunct lager.
S-The aroma is heavy on the cooked vegetables, corn in particular. There is a bit of graininess, but less of the metallic-tinny aroma that often overwhelms macro adjunct beers. Hops are mostly an afterthought.
T-The taste tracks the smell with cooked corn being the most prevalent flavor. There is also a bit of buttery taste. The finish dries out and ends with a puff of crispness. If I were to stretch, the finish has a pils-like quality to it.
M-The feel is light to medium in heft (when compared against other adjunct lagers) and the carbonation is active, but not overly fizzy. Crisp and pretty easy to drink.
O-This beer is not going to win any awards from me, but I don't think it compares poorly to other macro adjunct lagers. It packs a bit more flavor than say, Coors Light or Bud Light, etc., and it doesn't have the skunky rotten vegetable flavor that I get from big Mexican lagers like Corona. Of course, the real question is: Why drink this over a good pils or other craft lager?

I have consume this beer in numerous places in the United States, Spain, Morocco, and El Salvador; fairly uniformly tasting in all these countries. Pours bright yellow, foamy/soapy head that dissipated rapidly, and average carbonation. the aroma disappeared rapidly after pouring, it had a watery taste. with hops, wheat, rice, and malty yeast mixed in there. No real edge and pretty light filling.
