It's water with corn and a touch of alcohol. Nothing to it. One can easily tear through 18 of these and binge on delicious fried foods next to the beach..not saying I did...but one could...

From a small bottle, pours crystal clear, very bright. It reminds of semi-hydrated urine.

The flavor is all canned corn. Lots of grains, but musty like a basement. The flavor isn't much better, thin, watery. Besides the corn, there isn't really much going on.

Always fun to try lagers from around the world...

Puerto Rico, huh? Thanks for the sample, Kevin.

Exceptionally bright and clear as well as being exceptionally pale, the white head struggles to hold up and manages not much but some as it extends its greatest effort. What head there is ends up capable of some spotting, too.
Malts are mostly grainy, little substance but some husky must, though it's fairly clean. It's very light, in the end, though the faintest hint of grass comes out. That a note of wet cardboard is restrained is saying something when even a little could completely dominate; with any more character, it would likely be completely unnoticeable.
This is a fairly standard light lager, no adjuncts to speak of but lacking much of anything. There's a little leaf to it, and a slightly astringent, almost medicinal quality builds on the tongue with time. Pale malts do contribute, but little.
Light? Absolutely. It shouldn't, however, feel like soda with nothing to the body whatsoever.
