Served in the bottle at Cabo Taco restaurant, consumed with spicey fish tacos.
A: Hay colored with a lot of fizz, not much lacing.
S: Smells like generic beer horse blanket, not much on aromatics.
T: It's half a step above a corona, or beer of similar ilk. The best thing I can say about the taste is that it's non-offensive. Completely neutral fizzy flavor with a one note hit of dirt from whatever hops they water it down with.
M: Fizz, watered down. Best served damn near frozen on a hot day.
O: It's alcoholic carbonated water! :)

(bottle code: D034A128 - poured into a pilsner glass)
A: rapidly sizzling-out head... crystal-clear, lion's mane gold colored liquid...
S: pancake batter?... dusty upholstery?...
T: typical N. American lager characteristics, overall... stale Ritz cracker, popcorn... mild dry grass, mist of proofing dough... hint of toasted husk in the aftertaste... pizza with green peppers(?!), very late
M: clean, soft... moderate tingle throughout... a bit medium-bodied for an adjunct lager, typical of the Mexican examples... dry, semi-flat finish
O: not terrible... about what I expected... not as nice as Bohemia, but still good enough to drink all night on its own or with spicy, greasy Mexican dishes

Pours a clear straw color with a nice head that dissipates quickly in a 16oz pub glass leaving some lacing.
Smell is almost absent. I get a slight hint of some malts and yeast but it is ever so slight and non existent at times.
Taste really isn't that bad. I get the malts and a slight skunkyness that is present in many of the Mexican style beers.
Mouthfeel is okay. Little bit of carbonation but not much going on.
Overall, it is an okay beer to drink on the beach. If the taste is what saves the beer in my opinion. Without it this beer is a flop.
