Someone left a few of these at my house so I figured why not, I've been drinking IPAs so maybe being a little buzzed will help it go down. Poured from a green bottled 12 oz into a pint glass this pours a high foaming white head which leaves some type of lacing/left over foam with a light yellow color. The smells are pretty light and a little watery, maybe some adjuncts. The feel is light and watery. The taste is about the same, not really my thing but to each their own, thankfully I didn't pay for them.

Picked up a six pack right before a nice few hours cleaning the pool. Wonderful mouthfeel, And a great taste make this stuff what it is. If Mexico has this stuff, Why do they still make Corona? It's sad that most people think of Corona when they think of Mexican beer. Can't say much for the smell because...Well why in the hell would you be smelling a beer and not drinking it?. But this stuff is almost like a smoother, Slightly better tasting Labatt Blue. The color was pretty much that of a standard lager, With some carbonation. Definitely not disappointed with this, but it must be ice cold to be thoroughly enjoyed.
