2.58/5 rDev -5.5%
A - Pours golden, with a thin white foam. No lacing, and some cabonation.
S - Smells bland, and like a typical macro lager.
T - Not bad; it is refreshing. But it really adds nothing in terms of malt, grain, hops, or any flavors that make you feel like you are enjoying beer.
M - Crisp, light, and enjoyable. This is easy to drink, as expected.
O - Didn't expect much, and got a macro produced lager as expected. Don't expect the slick marketing to make it anything special.

1.98/5 rDev -27.5%
12 fl oz bottle served in a generic pint glass, reviewed from notes:
A - Pours a transparent, straw golden golden color with half a finger of thin, white head that was gone within 20 seconds. Generic and unappealing.
S - Stale cereal grains, heavy corn, light malt and maybe a touch of yeast (I'm stretching). Mild strength.
T - The taste is a bit maltier than the nose predicted, though it's still light. Heavy corn/adjunct taste and a bit of light cream. No yeast of hops notes are detectable. Simple and imbalanced.
M - Light bodied, smooth and wet. Completely wrong even for the style. Needs more carbonation.
D - Just another run of the mill adjunct lager with some Spanish branding on it. AVOID.

2.75/5 rDev +0.7%
Served at a bar in a 12 oz. bottle, but poured it into another AAL glass I was using. Notes typed hastily into my shitty old phone.
Appearance: Pours a pale, clear golden with a two-finger bone white head that quickly dissipates, leaving a surprising and impressive amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Corn, mild hops, metal, watery
Taste: Mild corn adjuncts and very mild hops, that's about it. Strange grassy/rubbery taste at the end.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light carbonation and body, easy drinker.
Overall: An above average American Adjunct Lager, worthy of a try in my opinion.
