Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (no date) into a pint glass.
A steady pour yields a 1-finger white head that recedes after a few minutes to a thick, clumpy dusting and thin foam ring. The body is a clear straw gold with a great amount of energetic carbonation bubbles. Some light lacing can be seen clinging to the sides of the glass throughout carbonation.
Pale malt and corn adjunct give this beer a sweet, grainy aroma. Notes of wet hay, corn, and biscuit are all noticeable.
Sweet corn malts start each sip with notes of hay, dead grass, and light caramel. As the beer is swallowed, the corn flavor intensifies and is met by flavors of coarse grains. These flavors linger between sips as a sweet, grainy aftertaste.
Light bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer can be gulped as easily as it is sipped. The body is light and playful, allowing the flavors to come through while keeping good drinkability. The carbonation is a bit less fizzy than some other beers in this category, which actually adds to the experience.

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.
