On tap at the 9th door in Lodo, this was the only draft offering and I'd already ticked the bottles they had. Bright yellow, fizzy looking lager. Aroma was nothing to write home, typical lager grains and a hint of mineral. The flavor was not half bad, pretty standard fizzy lager, crisp refreshing, easy to drink, not sure why this gets such low reviews.

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.

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.
