Golden color with precious little head.
Grassy and husky smell present here actually works quite well for the style.
Taste has a innocently goodish amount of grassy bitterness. Tastes akin to the kid brother of Pilsner, looking up to him and hoping to one day assert himself in the same image. One thing about mild hop and husk flavors here is that once you swallow, it's gone, that's it.
This is exceedingly thin in the mouth, with nothing at all to stick to your teeth. However thin, there is adequate CO2 present to make this one drink pretty nicely. I give it good marks on drinkability for the style. Great session/lawnmower beer, and I'll revisit it in just such an occasion.

(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
Serving type: bottle
