look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A - No head or lacing, but it does have a rich gold color that some macro's seem to be weak at

S - Not much there, some sweet grains

T & M - Very smooth and finishes clean, but forgettable once you finish the bottle

O - It's nothing amazing but a decent brew to have with a meal that has a lot of flavors & spice (haha almost like Mexican!). Its not overwhelming but its definitely a macro that I'd choose again

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.

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.
