2.38/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Straw yellow, very little internal carbonation, small foamy head, nothing special

S: Not much to note in reference to smell than a moderately strong corn/grain odor with traces of wheat

T: Very much the same as the smell, quite uninspired, it is what it though, I suppose

M: Incredibly smooth and drinkable but definitely suffering from a lack of character, also a rather unpleasant aftertaste

O: Would have been much better with a lime, grab a few to drink on the beach, certainly not something unique or worth discussing further

A small bottle of 190 ml poured into a glass. Colour as I see it from the transparent bottle ispale yellow. Aroma is of corn and lime, with the lime smell trying hard to overcome the corn, with little to no success. Taste follows the aroma, only the corn taste is stronger. Maybe it would taste nicer with a slice of lemon or lime in it. Very thin in body and average carbonation.
I had this in bars before and it wasn't that bad, provided you drink it from the bottle. Maybe pouring it into a glass wasn't a good choice.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: I'll be damned, but this looked pretty good. Great carbonation and very sexy with the lime. Decent foam, even in the bottle.

Smell: Mostly sweetened corn malt and lime.

Taste/Mouthfeel: This must have been a fairly fresh bottle. A bit salty, and tangy with the lime. A great beach beer. Nice and crisp as well.

Overall Drinkability: Just came back from the paradise that is Ciudad Juárez, México, and I just had to have this at a bar in El Paso. This really isn't a bad beer.
