Sampling right now on 8/22/14. New out for this summer. Bought a single one today and added it to the 'make your own 6' for $8.99. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a a pretty slightly hazy amber in color with about a 1/2 finger foamy white head that settles down to a thin layer on top and sides of the glass. Some spotty 'ringed' lacing is seen. The aroma is of grains. agave and some spice for the most part. The taste is pretty much the same with some sweetness from the wheat and maybe some corn (?) that ends in a slight dry finish. Overall, it is pretty good and is refreshing.

This was dropped off in support of The CANQuest ™ by my local, in-person trader, tone77.

“Imported from Mexico”; “Beer brewed with spice, blue agave nectar and caramel color added”; “Enjoy XX Responsibly”.

I had inadvertently done a Bounce Test on this CAN, so I held my breath when I CANducted the Crack! I was worried for naught as it had settled, but it was a brimful CAN, so I decided to shoot the works and go for an inverted Glug. No problem, although I was disappointed by its color. I was CANticipating a lovely shade of azure blue, but no, it was just Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. The foamy finger of bone-white head showed little attempt at retention and quickly shrank back into itself like a turtle’s head into its shell. There was shrinkage, I tell you, shrinkage! Nose reminded me that I do not care what they put into an AAL, if corn is among them, then corn is going to trump all else. Sure enough, past the spice and blue agave nectar, I could smell corn. Lousy color, lousy smell, I could see where this was headed. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was really odd. I did not perceive the corn as prevalently as on the nose, but the spices were strange. It tasted like a vanilla cookie! I kid you not. Finish was semi-sweet and still CANtinued to remind me of ‘Nilla Wafers. Hmmm. Not bad, but not great, either.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: a 1" sudsy white head falls quickly with some light lacing remaining. Color is a cloudy gold with lots of streaming carbonation.

Aroma: hay, agave, lightly toasted barley, maybe a hint of hops.

Mouthfeel: light and watery mouthfeel with a somewhat dry finish.

Flavor: sweetness dominates -- from the wheat, the light barley, probably some corn as well as the agave. There is a light grassy/herbal hop in the finish to provide a bit of balance.

Overall: easy drinking, refreshing, light summer beer.
