12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a lighter straw color with a good bit of translucence to its body. The head is a two finger white shade. Bubbly as can be, it fades away quickly, and doesn't leave much lacing on the glass, either.
S: Grains and light maltiness, about what I expect from a Mexican lager. Oh, and some noble hops. Gee, imagine that, noble hops in a lager! Whodathunkit? I also notice some tart lemon/lime qualities.
T: The lime tone in the aroma moves down to the tongue, supporting a sweet malt base and faint yet zesty hop bite. Adjunct notes are thankfully kept in check. Simple as can be, but it just works so well with what it has.
M: Light and crisp. Carbonation isn't overbearing, and it's superbly drinkable.
O: This isn't just good for a Mexican lager - it's a legitimately good beer, period. Merely drinking this makes me think about 78F sunny days laying on the patio without a care in the world. This beer has just given me A) a go-to in Mexican restaurants, B) something to buy for non-beer-drinking guests when hosting a party, and C) something to actually enjoy besides margaritas should I ever end up vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

Just slightly paler than amber, this beer is on the darkest side of yellow. It maintains a certain clarity, too, translucent but leaning more transparent. The head is a whitish cap reaching half a finger with good retention and somewhat better than decent coverage in terms of lacing.
It's a little grainy underneath, but it does have more Noble hops than I expect. It has a little bit of a peppery bite with some dry grass and a little damp earth. It goes a little sweet on the nose, more so than the tongue, but it's not corn. Malts, after the sweetness, go about medium-dry in the flavor. The finish offers more of a floral note with just a little of the running grains note continuing through.
It's crisp, light-bodied but not watery, and fairly smooth; all said, pretty refreshing. The grains do keep it from being completely clean.
