look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Next to no head, and when it did occur it disappeared almost immediately. The body is a slightly lighter then average blonde that has some steady carbonation.
Smell: Slight skunking but for the most part, bland and boring. Small notes of corn and straw. It's run of the mill in the worst way.
Taste: Starts with a mild rice and sweet corn taste that turns to fairly mild and generic hops. It's a bit watered down, but I sort of expect that from a mexican beer.
Mouthfeel: At the very end of the beer, the carbonation kicks in weird and a bit too soon. That and the lack of head doesn't do any favours. Apart from that, it's not bad.
Drinkability: Well it is refreshing, but the odd carbonation hurts it a bit, as it also leave you belching. Apart from that, no issues getting it down.
Final Thoughts: So, apparently the most interesting man in the world likes one of the world's least interesting beers. Maybe that's why he doesn't always drink beer. This beer is pretty generic, but I will give it that I would certainly choose it over Corona. You'll want a squirt a lime with this one.
