Yellow color with an almost inexistent fluffy head that vanishes quickly.
Initial weird aroma like a concentrated adjunct lager with fusel alcohols, corn and some lemon. Hello? Should I sip this? Later improves a bit.
Predominant flavor of acid lemon and a mild corn syrup.
Light body with good carbonation.
I hated, but it does deliver the promise, a Mexican lager, which is not necessarily a good thing... Anyway I gave some extra points given the strong lemon hint mimicking a Sol/Corona with a slice of it.

Backlog of reviews from the last week in CO, KS and KY. This was reviewed fully to my phone at time of consumption in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.

A- Golden bodied ale is poured from the 12oz bottle with a clear appearance to a goblet. The white head rises to one finger with a foamy texture. Pretty good head retention as the cap dies to a puffy ring and some clouds.

S- Saaz hops come to mind first with the lager yeast being a close second. Spicy, herbal and floral Noble hop character with pale fruit esters and fresh bread beyond that. Slight malts.

T- Pale fruit notes from the lager yeast pick it up more here as well a definite cracked pale malt and cereal grain sweetness. Deep bready quality. Saaz remains the focus but not by a ton bringing spicy, grassy and herbal qualities.

MF- Light bodied overall with a crisp fizzy and lightly frothy texture. Carbonation comes in on the high side with a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Saaz and lager yeast atop a pale cereal grain malt base. Spicy, grassy and bready with a crisp refreshing feel.

Best by 11/2/14.

Pours a clear light golden-yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
