24 fl oz can served into a conical Guinness pint glass in LA. Acquired at a Mexican market nearby. Expectations are as low as can possibly be - without venturing into budweiser chelada territory. Reviewed from notes (reviewed while beeradvocate was down for repairs).
A: Pours a one finger head of four second retention, awful thickness, and absolutely no cream. Colour is a dirty lemon with seeming overcarbonation. I'm not at all looking forward to this.
Sm: Water and straw. Stale barley. A mild strength, crappy aroma.
T: Straw, barley, and watery notes. A hint of clean malts. The third act features a straw note that has more fullness than the rest of the comparatively empty beer. This is the best part of the "flavour". It's incredibly simple, very watery, and pathetic - but I've had worse. Poorly built and horribly balanced.
Mf: Watery, smooth, and wet. Overcarbonated. Too thin. Very crap.
Dr: An awful beer I'd never have again. I suppose it might be less reprehensible on draught? There's little good to say about it. I guess the cover art on the can is alright. Wait, no - actually that sucks too. This is crap barley water that deserves no one's attention.
The best thing I can say is that I'd cook with this beer, or use it in a chicken marinade.

Went on a little family vacation to mexico and the mini fridge was stocked with these. Not normlly a fan of light beer on general but a ticker is gonna tick. Poured from the can to a glass...look was pale yellow with a big fizzy lager head and some visible carb, loos like a light beer and not all that appetizing but dont judge a book by its cover, right? Nose is corn and grain. Flavor is pretty much absent, but what is there is grainy and fairlt meh. Mouth is light and fizzy. I would say that this is the kind of beer you can drink all day but honestly i am nit going to make it through the can. Call me a beer snob but this just isnt good.
