One of the more underrated Gas station Beers.

I sat there and sifted through the general selection of headache medicine. The Coors lites, the watered down imports, the O-G forties, and my mind wandered to something homely. I needed something homely.

"Familiar" it's called, gives it a homely feel when you grasp it in your palm. I was looking for something "Homely" to drink, and something that wouldn't give me a headache. I will tell you, this is a long cry from it's skunkier cousin, Corona Extra.

This was it. The taste? Pretty good. It's got a lager corn .. slight wheaty.. fruity..- Zero skunk. I would even say, slightly delicious.

Sometimes Microbrew nuts get crazy with hops and alcohol leaving you with a migraine, this is one brown bottle of brew that will leave your stomach settled and a nice buzz to wash down with any meaty concoction.

Me? Corndogs, ham and cheese. But I'm sure this would have done any Tacos or Burrito plate Justice.

Quite delightful.

A: Pours golden. Finger of head. Loud beer. Lots of carbonation rushing to the surface. Large bubbles. Retention is minimal, as is lacing.

S: Mildly metallic, not really adjunct-y, but more of that euro pale lager, only without all the noble hop extract. Getting some sweetness off it, almost like a candied green apple, but this is super mild.

T: Mild. Hit of grain up front, twinge of hoppiness. Same weird green fruit flavors in the mid palate. Finishes with a grainy sweetness. Not really getting much adjunct, but again, very similar in flavor to many trashy europales.

M: Very carbonated. Fizzy, seltzery. Virtually no body.

O: This is a step up from Corona, but that's not saying much. Not a bad beach beer, but definitely nothing to write hope about.
