Alberta (Canada)

1.38/5  rDev -48.1%

A thin clear yellow in appearance, a splash of white head that quickly fizzles out. Grainy metallic on the nose, a little skunky, with a phantom of citrus that I thought I was imagining at first (no lemon in the glass). More grain/corn for the flavour up front, becomes a bit sweeter on the finish, but no real complexities to take note of. The mouthfeel is thin and watery, a beer to throw back when it's scorching outside, but I didn't take much pleasure in sampling this. I'll pass next time.

1.38/5  rDev -48.1%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with no head and no lace.

S: The aroma is very faint but contains light malts and a little bit of hops.

T: The taste doesn't have much too it, a mild adjunct sweetness, a very mild hops presence, a very thin malt character. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Not crisp with very little smoothness, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, the finish is clean at least.

D: Not flavorful at all, goes down ok, not filling at all, not much kick, this definitely not a good beer in any way.

1.4/5  rDev -47.4%

I had part of a 12-pack of this last time I was in Chicago. I thought it was horrible, much worse than I had remembered. This shit tastes like cheap, cheap malt liquor, and I know my malts. No one else drinking them thought they were so bad, but I could hardly swallow this astringent funk. Not recommended, I would much rather have Sol, Modelo Especial, or even Corona Extra over this pisswater.

1.4/5  rDev -47.4%

Served at between fridge and cellar temperature *on purpose*... I really want to get this beer's full expression and potential. That being said, I've never tried this before.

Appearance- OK... I am not one to slam a beer, especially for no reason. But "pisswater" is the only thing I see right now before my eyes. It poured a clear pale yellow, the color of Rolling Rock, but the head was a complete joke! Bubbly and loud, it completely died not ten seconds later. I swear to God this looks like a urine sample.

Smell- There's a sweetish malt thing going on here, but the vegetal, cereal grain notes add nothing beneficial to round out the aroma. Maybe I'm taking this tasting too seriously...

Taste- All we've got here is cheap filler, the taste is of corn syrup and a cloying sweetness. *Maybe* on a blazing hot day, straight from the bottle, I could understand this disaster. Horribly menacing aftertaste... I have found Corona's playmate in the sandbox.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Prickly and active at first, this beer explodes on impact and then fades away in seconds. It's thin and uninteresting, the blandest of macro lagers... I would never hit this again.

1.45/5  rDev -45.5%

Pours a poor looking yellowish straw color with a thick white head and no lacing. Smells of sweet corn and a little sweet malts. Tastes of sweet corn and a little sweetness and maybe a little bread. Mouthfeel is medium and it has a heavy carbonation. Drinkability is low.

1.48/5  rDev -44.4%

Full disclosure: this was free.

Bright, effervescent yellow with no head at all and one or two bubbles meandering up from the glass bottom.

Smells like Toastitos tortilla chips. Tastes like husky adjuncted sugar with a super dry finish.

This is a hate-filled, spite-riddled beer that wants to destroy you, your pallette and other beers who look like they're having a good time. Beware the Mexican assassin.

1.5/5  rDev -43.6%

This one is as about as clear and lifeless looking as you could imagine, plenty of carbonation is the only good attribute. A tiny, white, transparent head forms fast and is gone just as quick.

The "nose" (if you can call it that) has a sour, thin malt scent with slight aluminum and tin. You cannot detect any hops or anything else for that matter.

The flavor is a thin, semi-sweet malt with a strange metallic sourness in the finish. You cannot detect any hop flavor, I'm not even sure there are hops in this stuff! There's very little else to report...the lack of flavor says it all. The feel is refreshing and zippy and first but it quickly becomes totally flat and lifeless. This is a zombie beer!

Enough is enough, it's hard to finish one of these....christ! where's my slice of lime???
