This one was floating in the fridge for a while so in honor of my recent Mexico trip and NBS, thought it would be time.

A: Pale pee yellow with no head and/or lacing.

S: Smells like a macro, a little extra in terms of skunkiness here. maybe age didnt do it wonders.

T: Corn and a horrific light beer. This makes miller lite taste great.

M: Over carbonated and poppy like a soda.

D: Worst light beer Ive ever had. Strongly prefer Miller, Hein and esp Sam Adams. This was flat out bad.

¡Salud! (With something else, please, because last night was the first AND last time I had this one).

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a poor looking light golden straw color with a thick white head and a little bit of lacing. Smells of grain and a little sweet corn. Tastes of sweet corn and a little tad of hop extract (you know its not real) and was pretty nasty. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Drinkability is poor.

A classic mexican pilsner brewed by mexican macro giant Grupo Modelo.

Color: Yellow pale with very low head retention and low lace formation lace. Pours very bad out of the bottle.

Aroma: Faded aromas of dry malts and hops.

Taste: Semi-dry malts and some hops. Nothing much interesting. Average mexican macro lagger

Finish: Dry finish with bitter aftertaste, some metallic notes and aftertaste.

See pretty much any other light Mexican beer. Very easy to drink but lacking flavor. Very pale colored. Grainy, corn flavor with mild (sort of) hops but watered down and a little stale tasting. It is what it is. As far as light beers go however it really isn't that bad.

Pours a poor yellow color without head and no lace; Smell is malty but weak; Taste of corn, typical light lager flavor; Mouthfeel is watery, light body, medium carbonation; Refreshing; Drinkable but nothing special, Just for a hot day when you cant´ get any other beer.

¡Salud!
