This was horrific. Corn and adjcunts aplenty, watery mouthfeel, Typical Mexican yellow as piss lager. Some plastic flavours pop up every now and then. Luckily i had the footy to watch to distract me from the weak as piss Mexican lager, this is easily just as bad as corona.

First had: bottle in a gift set

Basically, a better alternative to Corona. So still crap.
Poured like a typical macro: straw color, thin head that fizzled out, fizzy carbonation. Rancid aroma, mulched grass and stale hops, which carried through in the taste. Light, watered down mouthfeel with no real flavor at all. Sickeningly sweet aftertaste with lots of funk and skunk. Too be avoided.

This beer sucks. Horrible lingering after taste. Tried it twice thinking maybe I had a bad batch the first time. But nope, it's just nasty all the time. You want a cheap beer to party with?? Tecate it's cheaper then this shit and way better.

Horrible. I'm no beer geek but this is probably the worst beer I've ever tasted. No hops, no flavor at all. Watery bread and piss. Yuck.
