I drank this from a can into a glass in Cabo San lucas.

It pours a light clear gold with a white head, not much head or lacing.

The aroma is light hops and a lot of skunk. The taste is basically the same. The mouthfeel is less than water, is that possible? Drinkable is ok but what's the point with the abv.

This is like Tecate but worst, can you imagine?

Pours clear yellow with a super white head that has no retention, pours like a soda.

Seriously has no aroma, I can't smell a thing, when I poured it the head gave of some aroma but it was to fleeting for me to remember what it was

Can hardly taste a thing either, I can taste some malt so I know it's there, I can taste some bitterness and the alcohol bit it's still like nothing, its all so faint!

Mouthfeel is terrible, it's to watery and the crazy forced carbonation makes it worse for me.

Drinkability? No, the lack of anything makes this a totally undrinkable beer for me, no flavor, no anything.

Sigh I know people who swear by this beer and drink it all the time and I'm left wondering what's the point?

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.

Tecate Light? Hmmm. Tecate isn't the worst beer, but isn't it light enough? Oh well, I gave this a try and drank the whole can, barely.
Light looking. Barely any color, pale yellow/gold. Soapy filmy head, none after about 10 seconds.
Smell is gross. Wet straw, bog, smelly socks. Some grass hints. Thankfully the aroma isn't strong.
Taste isn't either. The aroma stops short of making it to the mouth. Still, stale straw, socks, bad phenols. Some carbonation saves it from being, of all things, bland.
Not one of my favorites.

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.
