Poured from a 24 oz. can into a dimpled beer mug.
This is the 7th beer in my great American Adjunct lager hunt.
A-Deep gold, looks better than the typcial Adjunct piss yellow color. Poured a 1/2 finger soda water head that fizzled quickly and left a slight white ring around the edges of the beer. No lacing at all. Lower carbonation in the glass.
S-Grain, sweet corn, rice, and a slight skunky smell.
T-For a cheap Mexican-American Adjunct style lager, it actually had some sweet malt character. Of course the dominant tastes were corn and rice. The aftertaste was wet and didn't leave a strong aftertaste, which is what I like in a good brew.
M-Highly carbonated and it did quench my thirst. There was an element of crispness to this, but nothing too special. Quite watery, really.
Overall-I had no expectations when I bought this. It surprised me more than I thought it would. It wasn't spectacular, and in fact, it was quite average. It's just a good way to wash down spicy food.
