Poured from 24oz tall can into a pint glass. I just wish that I reviewed this when I was in Mexico!
Appearance: light straw-yellow hue with a haze free body and a pretty strong effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy white foam which dissipated quickly with no lace. Par for the style, I suppose.
Smell: kind of a light, dusty-plastic aroma with perhaps a hint of wet grain. Not the worst thing in the world, but really not too good for even an adjunct lager.
Taste: sweet malt with perhaps a bit of corn to it. Not bad, but the aftertaste is a bit grimmer, with more of that plastic character. I gotta say, I've had worse macro lagers, but this still isn't too good.
Mouthfeel: light body with a strong carbonation and a light but surprising foaminess in the mouth. I don't want to call it creamy, but at least there's *something* going on here.
Overall: I don't love this beer, but I will admit I enjoyed a couple of them on the beach in Mexico. That's really about the only context in which you'll want to drink one of these.
Serving type: can
