It's amazing, even in Mexico the corner hamburguesa stand dishes out quality chow but you can only get one beer. Sure they change the label or add coloring or it might even be brewed by the competition but it is essentially the same beer. Gold under a paltry head. Nose of whatever you happened to eat previous clinging to your upper lip hairs. How can you describe the taste? Why describe the taste? Grease from a conveyor carrying mass produced aluminum apples. I'm left wondering why my mini bar is void of tequila.

It looks the part: crystal-clear pale to medium yellow-gold, maybe a little depth to it. It actually develops a reasonably-sized, fluffy pure white head. It doesn't drop a whole lot of lace, but there's some spotting around the glass.
There's some earth on the nose, and some grassy and herbal hops make a show. It's got more hops than most AALs, but it has an unfortunate skunkiness to it as well.
The skunk doesn't really translate to the flavor, which is nice. It's still got light notes of grass and herb with a bit of pale, dry malts.
The feel is better than what most of this style have to offer, light-bodied without being terribly watery, a bit thin but not as much as most. It's got plenty of crispness and it actually gets pretty smooth. That it's pretty clean is also a plus.
