Predominant corn aroma.
Refreshing taste of an adjunct lager without much off-flavors while cold. Very mild bitterness, with sweetness from adjunct and malt (also mild).
Watery body with good carbonation and a crisp feeling.
I was quite thirst and this beer hit the spot. Meaning, for this time it did fit its purpose, don't expect too many flavors.

This is water with an alcohol content IMO. Pours gold in color with little to no head. A hint of hops in the aroma, taste is about the same not much to it, I've had some sugar water with more flavor. Some carbonation and a descent mouthfeel nothing great about this just that you can drink a ton of it. This is more like the beer that you drink after 8 hours of hard labor in the sun something to refresh you before you move on to something better.

'05 Re-review:

Its just the Aguila throwing a sort of Corona spinoff. Bright pale straw coloured (transparent bottling too), bright white fizzy and thin head to match. Sour smell, skunked with some hops to it as well. The taste is quite tangy too, but just seems so watery you'll have a hard time finding anything interesting within. lots of gas for such a tasteless brew.

Second beer of Cinco De Mayo!!!! Aguila Light is what you would expect it to be...similar to the Miller Lites. The color is golden and clear. There is decent carbonation, but there is no head. There smell is non-existent and the taste is a solid light beer. Standard hints of grain. The beer is very light on the mouth and easy drinking. Crack one when its hot out and you will not be dissappointed.
