Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is pretty watery with aromas of grain and sugar. Taste is pretty much the same and like the smell is watery. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer with no real aromas or flavors.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours straw color with a white head that dissipates very quickly. Smells of slight lime, but has a general adjunct beer smell. Tastes of adjunct beer with a slight fruity taste, but not really anything. Goes down really smooth, good carbonation, and could be very sessionable. Overall, a below average beer.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a pale, crystal clear, yellow-gold color with a thin, sparse, white filmy coating on the surface. Aromas of toasted grains, roast corn, and a slight char character. Flavors are watery and light, with a roasty backbone of corn and grains, leading to a slightly filmy, toasty aftertaste. The finish is light and smooth, albeit slightly limp and watered down once again. This brew is nothing if not consistent.

I usually don't write reviews from beers that I try at a restaurant but this one I will because I don't think that I missed anything.

I tried this at Old Chicago as part of their Cinco de Mayo mini tour

A-bright yellow with a very fluffy white head that fades quickly with no lacing

S-not much smell at all except for a faint corn/grain presence

T-much like the smell, not much there except maybe a hint of corn

M-thin and watery

O-fizzy, yellow and wet not that good if you are looking for flavor. Mexican version of BMC just another macro brew
