Yellow-gold. White head that quickly dissipates. Shows some good carbonation. Corn and malt aroma with a bit of funk. It has some sourness, corn is present in the taste. Mouthfeel is light-medium. Semi-dry finish. Overall, there is nothing offensive about this beer, but it's not one I would seek out to purchase again. When Cinco de Mayo rolls around and the local place is running a special, then I might give this one another go.

2.24/5: This would actually be half-decent in (skunk-proof) cans!

I got this at my local Tex Mex joint as a change of pace, I guess. What I got, of course, was a fairly mediocre, slightly below average adjunct lager. It's not a horrible beer, but it's not good either. It ranks with Corona.
