Poured from bottle into glass in NYC at some random spanish bar...
Pours a clear golden with foamy head. Malty sweet aromas, but an actual hop smell...it almost smells like it was dry hopped. Taste is not bad. A definite malt flavor, but an almost sweet hop and crisp taste. Its way diferent than an American adjunct...its really unique in the "Adjunct" style. Worth a try just because its a bit diff than most of the style.

Another from the chronicles of Central American Lager fest this weekend. Thanks to Roswell the Dog for bringing this back and sharing. Pours a clear golden straw color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly in the July sun. Smells malty sweet and lightly grainy with the faintest of floral hops to provide a hint of balance. The flavor is what I expected, a bit sweet hints of honey almost no hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet grainy mouthfeel. Feels like a light lager, taste like a light lager but really went down easy on a sunny 85 degree day. Not something I'd ever seek out, but glad I got to try it.

A: Crystal clear, straw colored, 1 finger white head with immense lacing.

S: 2 row, slight caramel, corn and pilsner style hop bitterness. Slight skunk.

T: Corn, slight malt sweetness. Pretty close to water but quick to sip.

M: Thin but carbed.

O: Not horrible. It's simple an american adjunct lager. Better than most of the domestic premium categories.

I got this can of 355 ml from a megastore in Mexico, brought it all over home.One finger soapy head over a light golden yellow beer. Little activity in the glass. The head has good retention, it leaves no lacing. Some malt aroma but very faint.
Bitter, nice taste but nothing too fancy.
Refreshing,dry on the palate, high carbonation, medium thickness on the body.

A: Pours a crystal clear yellow with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall bright white fizzy head that reduces to thin patches and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate lacing is observed.

S: The overall aroma of this beer is lighter than others in the style and mostly one-dimensional. There is lots of sweetness from the adjunct malts with the predominant aroma being that of corn.

T: The flavor of this beer is quite sweet due to the high amount of adjunct malts - mostly corn with a little grain. There is an underlying more malty flavor but that is quite subtle and no detectable hops (no bitterness). Not as bold a flavor, on the lighter side.

M: Light bodied with high amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Very easy to drink and more enjoyable than many others in this style, easily a session beer and probably best served on a warm day when cooking out. Not one of my favorite styles but certainly a decent example.
