Had the pleasure (?) to crack a can on a recent trip south of the border. Pale yellow, very clear with streams of carbonation bubbles. Thin white head on foam that is there, then not there. Light grain/lager smell. Very light bodied, lots of carbonation, really no discrenable flavors. Yes, it is crisp, clean, and easy drinking, but only because there is not much to it. I am glad some one else paid.

Just had the family bring back one of the fancy new 16 oz alumi-bottles. Neat packaging, taste is the same.

Poured from 120z can into pint glass

A - Clear straw in color, about a 1.5" head which goes away almost immediately

S - smell is a little sweet, smells of watered down hops with some malt

T - taste starts with some sweet malty flavor, then aftertaste is 'stale hops.' ugh.

M - Very light, but good amount of carb for a light beer, some can be over carbonated

Overall - it's a light beer, they're all about the same
