2.93/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A pale gold body that boasts some lacing as a finger of head sticks around well enough.

Smell: There is a grainy smell to it that is for sure, and a touch a sandy hops. Warming didn't help it's case either way.

Taste: It's a pretty generic lager to be honest, as subdued malt gives way to a stronger straw and surprisingly unsweet corn, which is rounded off by sandy tasting hops.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation isn't pulling it's weight here, as the beer tastes a bit too watery for my liking. The sandy taste also accentuated itself more and more as the beer went on to my dismay.

Drinkability: Well, I will say this, if it was sweltering outside, I'd grab this stuff fairly quickly. It's incredibly light, and while I wouldn't say it's the easiest drinker, it certainly has more character then other adjuncts.

Final Thoughts: It might not be a fair comparison but this stuff to me is Corona done right. Make no mistake, an award winning beer it is not, and I'm honestly a bit perplexed at how they managed to give the hops that sandy accent, but all in all you could do worse.

Serving type: can

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.
