look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours a 1" white head that recedes quickly with some mild lacing. Color is a clear light gold with plenty of carbonation present.
Aroma: mild aroma of lightly toasted barley and some corn sweetness.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp, slightly papery with a dry finish.
Flavor: corn and sweet barley dominate the flavor, maybe a hint of hop spice in the finish.
Overall: a pleasant, drinkable light lager that pairs well with spicy Mexican food.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

This pours as any adjunct would with a crystal clear pale yellow with a white fizzy head.

The aroma is a little grainy, with a touch of corn and grass.

The flavor is light adjunct grain, even wheat, with a crisp corn flake.

The feel is very crisp, very light and the carbonation, though prevalent, is not as sharp as expected.

Typical Mexican adjunct, served best with a lime, for hot sunny days.

Sampled back on 3/10/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a golden-yellow in color with a very thin white head. Some very light spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is really nothing special at all, some yeast. The taste is about the same with some grains with a hint of corn. A little on the 'watered-down' side and slightly stale even, though no date is found on the bottle and bought it just in the past 2 weeks. Average to above average carbonation. Really nothing special about this brew.
