Pours a nice golden color but that's about all it has going for it. Smell and flavor are typical for an AAL with adjuncts dominating. The carbonation is weak and it flattens quickly. Only got it at a Tex-Mex restaurant because it was a "Happy Hour" Special. There are far better choices in Mexican beers.
