I typically enjoy this beer when dinning out for Mexican food. I remember usually enjoying the beer.

Pours a clear straw color with a white foamy head that dissipates very, very quickly to no-foam at all. Perhaps a sign this beer is old? No lacing to be found.

Smells of corn and bread. Hints of grass, maybe some malt in the background.

Taste is uninspiring, somewhat bland. Reminds me of Miller High Life, not good.
No hops, maybe some sweet bread in the finish, it is clean, and somewhat crisp.

Mouthfeel is clean, a little watery, and thin. Some carbonation in the end.

I was very disappointed with this beer. I recall enjoying this one at restaurants, but this 6-pack is almost worthy of a drain pour. I may try another review if I get one while dinning out in the future.
