poured from the 12 oz can into my new belgium goblet:

A pours a thin light yello with a blanch white head, settles to a thin film
ultra clarity

S no much to the nose a bit metallic (honetly I am thinking macro)

T not bad! light on the palate -

M thin and easy to drink

D a real session beer - missing on quality taste - but if you can find em cheap, guzzle away! at least its better than bud!

Served from a can. Glad to see they got rid of the slightly racist "sweepy Mexican" on the label.

Super clear beer, very pale goldenrod color. Ridiculous clarity, lively bubbles, but a great soapy head with some of the best lacing I've ever seen on an APL. Aroma is equally transparent; slightly spicy, a faint noble hops aroma, nothing too distinct, is that a hint of lime? Taste is very light and inoffensive, bordering on bland. Hops are muted, malt is faint, but the overall impression is crisp and refreshing. I guess I can sense the Saaz hops, but they are quite far away and a shadow of their potential.

This is a craft cervaza, I guess. Pair this ice-cold with some spicy taco truck food on a blisteringly hot day, and this beer is a winner; crisp, refreshing. Easy drinking. Don't look for too much in this one, just drink it and remember not all beer needs to be complex to be pretty damn good.
