A 355ml bottle with a BB of May 2012. ABV is stated as 4.5%. Picked up dirt cheap from an off-licence.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear yellow colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that dissipates rapidly. Aroma of ultra-light malt with stewed corn and an unpleasant metallic twang. A subtle harshness in the background.

Tastes of exceptionally watery malt with faint hints of corn. Slightly sweet, with a whisper of stewed hops and a mild yet harsh bitterness. Quite dry. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, with tingly carbonation. Somewhat astringent - dries the palate. Aftertaste of stewed corn/veg/leaves and a harsh note.

Bad. Bland and with nasty flavours; I'd have to be pretty desperate to consider drinking this again, even in Mexico. Pacifico - just say no!

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a very pale, watery, yellowish coloring with no head whatsoever. Aromas of roasted corn and must. Flavors are sharp and astringent, with a roasty grain and buttery blend that is minimal and underwhelming given the body and feel of the brew. The aftertaste is tangy and astringent, with a sharp, rough finish. Not pleasant at all.

bottle poured into pint glass 2/5/12

A clear straw yellow with giant bubbles but little for head or lace

S slightly skunky, corny with soggy rice cake

T some sour vegatal notes and a little lemon on top of what I smell, not so great

M thin with lots of bubbles, thankfully it has a pretty clean finish

O pretty basic stuff much like many Mexican lagers I've tried

one of those beers where you pretty much know how its going to be before cracking the bottle. I'd drink it before Mexican tap water but not in many other situations, don't bother

Tried at Old Chicago as part of the Cinco de Mayo mini tour

On tap in chilled mug

A-pale yellow with fizzy head that fades quickly

S-some kind of cross between metal and corn

T-maybe it is from the smell, but I cant get past the corn and metal here also

M-thin and watery with fizzy carbonation

O-Grainy and metallic not something that I like in beer but something that is unfortunately not limited to just this brew. Not the worst beer that I have ever had, just the worst in awhile

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pale yellow body and a short-lived head.

Smell: Grain along with a slight but distinct metallic skunky sulfur reminiscent of overcooked cabbage.

Taste: Boiled corn and slight sweetness with hop presence to balance. Clean finish due mostly to high carbonation and a bit of lingering hop.
