A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a half finger tall bright white head that dissipates quickly. There is also fairly significant amounts of visible carbonation.

S: Little smell of any kind with this beer - maybe the faintest hint of adjunct malts - corn and grain.

T: The adjunct malts dominate the taste with grain and corn also present. Slight bitterness from the hops.

M: Light with significant amounts of carbonation. Maybe a little watery. Dry in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and would be good on a real hot day with some food.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Having been out in garage in February, it is very cold.
Honey colored and clear. Small white pillowy head that immediately disappeeared with no lacing.
Picked up little on the smell of any note.
Taste is wet hay and wet bread but not offensive. Bitter to swallow and finishes quickly.
Feel is watery and carbonation sizzles on the tongue.
I would not go out to buy this beer but would drink it when choices are limited. I would like to try a couple when its 90 out and humid and see if that if an influence. I don't have a lot of experience with the Mexican lager beers and think there will be better to experience.

This is my at home beer, living in southern california it gets pretty hot here, this is great for that.

I grew up in europe(almost 30 years) and was very much used to all the fine pilsners over there.

Coming to the US, I started the regular budweiser coors etc

This is a much better brew. Just a great every day beer.

Drink it in a can(not bottle), if you like put a lime in it and enjoy.

It goes down smooth and no hangovers.

Give it a try on a warm day.
