Poured a yellow colour and made no head. Presented good carbonation though.
In the aroma corn and rice are predominant. Unfortunately, flavour follows aroma.
It has a rather metalic or oxidized ending which is not very pleaseant. It is a beer to drink very cold, or with some lemon to disguise its flaws.

330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass.

A: Pours a clear and bright yellow color forming a medium bubbled white head. Low retention and few lacing left

S: Sweet. Adjunct malts, mainly corn. Some flowery hops in the very end

T: Sweet upfront, again, lots of corn. Watery as hell. Really weak. Lager yeasts. Bitterness is nonexistent

M: Extremely light and watery body. Faint carbonation. Sweet corn aftertaste

O: Low drinkability. One of the worst "beers" that I've ever had

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

A: Pours a crystal clear light to medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger and a half tall bright white head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of small thicker patches and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Very light aromas of grainy adjunct malts with a hint of rice

T: There are light to moderate flavors of grainy and adjunct malts (rice) but without a lot of sweetness. There is a light flavor of grassy hops with impart a slight amount of non-lingering bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin and watery.

O: Very easy to drink and sessionable, would be a good beer for a cook out on a hot summer day or at the beach. Pairs well with just about any food style as it does not have competing flavors.

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

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of adjunct malts in the nose—rice seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but is a little more flavorful and also has a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and isn’t dominated by adjunct malts, although both the aromas and flavors are weak.

A small white head fades into nothing above a clear golden colored beer.

A light aroma of corn syrup and light sweet grain malts.

The taste is more of the light sweet malts with a slight hops coming through.

A slight dry aftertaste with some hops tastes lingering on this watery light bodied beer.

This seems to be a watered down version or other Mexican light lager style beers.
