A: Poured from the bottle into a pilsner glass. Body is coppery-amber with a smallish (half-finger) ecru-colored head on top. Some splotchy lace.
S: Caramel malt and cereal grains. Slightly minerally.
T: Inoffensive, though somewhat bland and a little bit too sweet. Modest toasted bread and some generic sweetness makes me wonder if corn is employed as an adjunct here. Slight minerally bitterness at the finish, but it doesn't cut through the overwhelming impression of sweetness.
M: Light in heft, carbonation is a bit too subdued, giving this a slightly oily feel.
O: This is decent for what it is. When you're at a Mexican restaurant eating spicy food, you could do far worse than to order this beer. I think it would do better with food than when drank on its own, as I'm doing now.

Had this at a local Mexican restaurant. Decent and comparable to Yuengling (my favorite mass-produced beer). Here goes:
A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours a dark brown with a one inch head that quickly dissipates. Very little lacing, too, but not bad.
S: Not that much going on here. Caramel malt is present but it's very light (hardly detectable). No hops or yeast.
T: Good. Presence of burnt caramel malt imparts toasty characteristics. It tastes like a watered-down Yuengling. As I was drinking it I was wishing it was Yuengling instead.
M: Light-bodied; lighter than Yuengling. Slight bready character makes up for the light body somewhat, though. Not bad.
O: OK beer. Would rather have a Yuengling, but not bad.
