Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a pint glass at Dos Amigos in Torrington, Conn.
A: Poured a pale, golden yellow color with a fizzy head of bubbly carbonation which settled to a soda-like ring. Moderate to fierce carbonation and good clarity, at least.
S: Smells of corn husk and some sugary sweet grain. A little bit of gritty malt grains and cooked rice.
T: Flavor is pretty spot on with the aroma; a sweet, quick flash of corn, rice and adjunct malt grains. There's a thin, watery wash of dry hops towards a sweetened veggie finish which vanishes almost completely after a moment. Pretty much swill macro, but better than Corona and equal to most BMC, IMO.
M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied, super crisp, clean and drying in the finish.
D: Given its status as a cheap-ass macro swill brew by Mexicans and its "what's that?" factor amongst your friends at a Mexican joint, you can;t be faulted for going there. I've seen it cheap enough for sixers in stores where I'd get it over Corona to bring to a Mexican-theme party or something, but the buck stops there. Fine for what it is, the Mexican High Life.

From a can. I bought a suitcase at AM/PM as an emergency step when the kegerator ran dry of Mirror Pond.
Not as bad as you have been led to believe. This is the definitive Mexican macrobrew, and it's better than any American macro. Still, a little too much corn and maybe rice.
