My brother left a couple of these in the fridge after my cookout, figured I'd pound one and put a review in.

Pours a pale gold with a fast fading head. Some crazy carbonation throughout. There's barely any aroma but what's there is very lager-like.

Very subtle, grainy flavor with a watery feel. Goes down easy with a crisp finish. Despite the lack of flavor, I find it to be fairly inoffensive - this is a good choice if you are eating something spicy (like Mexican) or anything with a strong flavor. I do not recommend drinking this on it's own, not enough taste to be had.

A: Pours a pale yellow color with a white head that fades quickly to bits of lacing.

S: aroma of grain, malt sweetness and not much else.

T: Taste of grain, malt sweetness. The is a decent bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Light body, bit crisp and somewhat refreshing.

O: Good beer for a hot summer day. That's about it.

12fl.oz. bottle. Dos XX Pint glass. (From my notes: Bought at “Mexican Week” in a mall. Enjoyed at home). Pale golden color. Crystal appearance. Brief, white in color, froth. Corn & sweet aromas. Crispy upfront followed by smooth sweet adjuncts. Light body. High & lively carbonation. Watery texture. Dry finish similar to many European lagers. Clean bitterness is missed even though.
