A - Clear, and a pale straw colour. A few bubbles make up what I guess you could call a head. No lace.

S - Faint whiff of corn.

T - Hello? taste? I can't believe I used drink this stuff. It's my first one for a couple of years, and in that time I discovered craft beer. This stuff is just water.

M - Watery thin, medium carbonation.

O - I'm not sure if I would even call this beer. It's like a glass of water with a dash of corn syrup thrown in. Not gross or anything, but just the most unexciting, flavourless beer I can think of.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden color body. The white fizzy head disappears entirely leaving only a fizzy ring around the glass with no lacing.

Aroma: Corn or rice adjuncts, slight skunkiness, a sour note on the back end.

Taste: Some graininess up front, followed some corn husk through the body. A slightly sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, watery, carbonated.

Overall: In the realm of Mexican lagers, this one is below average for me.

Bought a 24 oz of this stuff because, honestly, I am gonna use the bottle for a batch of hard cider that I have fermenting in the basement at the moment. Of course, the reason clear bottles are perfect for cider is that THERES NO DAMN HOPS IN CIDER! Upon opening the bottle, I was immediately struck by the unmistakable smell of skunkiness. That smell is only reinforced by taking the first bitter, bitter swig. Ugh. Look, it's marginally better than Tecate, but way inferior to Dos XX, Modelo, or Negra Modelo. Steer clear.
