This beer is hard to get where I live, and it´s not that good. I know its very popular in the northern states, but here in central Mexico it has a bad rep.

Ok with some tacos. Needs salt and lime

Fantastic mouthfeel, and the flavor seems to downplay the adjuncts in favor of very soft malts. The aroma suffers as with many of these beers, but this is a solid choice with Mexican fare.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades almost instantly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mostly of a bready and crackery smell with a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these smells are some light papery smells and a little bit of grass.

Taste – The taste begins with a very light bready flavor with a little bit of caramel and corny sweetness. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade, bringing a more cracker like flavor to the bready taste. All the while, a little bit of grass and earth as well as a papery taste all come to the tongue, leaving one with a rather dry and crisp, but slightly off, lager flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very thin with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the crisp and lighter flavors of the brew the feel is quite appropriate and makes for a more refreshing summer style beer.

Overall – Ah… Nothing all that spectacular here. It is pretty much a sub-standard lager, that while light and crisp, really does not have the most palatable flavor profile.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Stamped 03124. Sampled on December 5, 2014. No lime.

Golden to pale yellow pour and a quick lasting white fizzy head. Active carbonation.

Like most beers of its ilk I pick up a toasted barley and grainy malt character, maybe some corn, and clean crisps hops on the nose.

Light body but reasonably smooth.

The taste is pretty basic with its barley and grainy malt flavor and a refreshing hop finish. Just typical of the style like dozens of other beers in its class. Drink it with tacos.
