look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Caramel color with a 1/4 inch head and no retention

Smell: Dirty mexican bath water with a toffee note

Taste: Again same as the nose. The beer does taste better than some of the other awful mexican beers out there but still not good

Mouthfeel: Thin and fairly carbonated

Overall: Again just an awful example of what a beer could be

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Clear reddish amber body with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. A surprising bit of lacing considering the head hardly ever existed. Not much aroma but the taste is okay.

This isn't the best Vienna lager out there, but I think it's probably the best beer I've had from this particular brewery.

One of the better choices among BMC-type lagers. Amber/copper color; modest head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is mostly generic maltiness but has a bit of bready toasted character. Very faint floral hops buried way underneath. Restrained sweetness.

Simple flavor offers no surprises, but it’s solid and drinkable without any “off” notes like many of the cheaper adjunct-filled macros. Basic toasted malt, caramel, light sweetness, muted hops, low bitterness, faint floral/grassy taste in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel and carbonation both right in the middle of the spectrum, short, fairly clean finish. Drinkable.

Again, better than most macro offerings. I was pleasantly surprised after not drinking this beer in years.
