Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Poured from bottle as a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast leaving only a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of corn and some fruity smells. Mixed with these was a skunky smell with a light vegetal aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with flavors of a bread and corn mixed with hints of a caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances further the caramel fades giving rise to more sweet corn flavors. Some citrus flavors and a grassy flavor come to the tongue more at the end, leaving a rather unpleasant mix of flavors on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that is a little above average. The thinner body and higher carbonation are quite fitting for the style, making it a rather easy drinking brew.
Overall – I think I would leave this one alone on most occasions.

I'm into darker beers now.. But I remember when I liked this beer a lot... But only in bottles (I don't drink cans). There isn't a lot of flavor or even anything really special about this beer, but some people don't like a strong tasting beer, this is good for them. I noticed it has lower ratings here which I can understand if you don't like this type of beer, but for a lot of people this is a perfectly good beer, with plenty of flavor and is better than corona or a lot of the other Mexican beers... But like I said... Drink the bottles, not the cans. If you drink from cans you probably shouldn't be reviewing beers lol...
