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.

I am going to review this beer and be constructive, but let the record show that this is perhaps the worst beer I have ever had in my entire life. On to the constructive critiques:

A: Very pale yellow with a one-finger head. Died quickly with no retention.

S: Musky, skunky smell of stale grains.

T: The smell translated to the flavor; LOTS of stale grain and very watery.

M: Extremely light, silky smooth.

O: I got this in a "Build your own six-pack" special, and even with low expectations I did not enjoy this one bit. It was like a mexican pissed into a glass bottle, filled the rest with water, froze it, and shipped it to my liquor store. If given this beer for free, I would actually refuse. It tasted as bad as it smelled with its musk and watery smell, and nothing set this beer apart from other adjuncts. I apologize if this was a slammer, but I honestly have nothing positive to say about this beer and felt my review should show my honesty.
