Smells like wort with no hops and tastes malty with not much flavor

12 oz bottle from World Market, dated BB 7 May 2014, so presumably plenty fresh. Served in a lager glass.

Pours light golden-amber color with excellent clarity and a proportionate off-white head that leaves plenty of soapy lacing on the glass.
Aroma: light APA.
The flavor opens with caramel and light malts, with herbal hops coming out in the finish and aftertaste.

Medium-light bodied with medium, coarse carbonation.

Overall: a fine looking Mexican blonde with a slightly ramped up hop/malt ratio.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass via a friend at work---Thanks Kevin!

Pours a lightly hazy blondish amber with a moderate head of white foam that settles to a thin ring, thin layer, and light lacing. Nose of honey, subtle light grains, and subtle herbal hops. Flavors surpass the nose with sweet caramel and honey on the front to middle of the taste with a zest hop on the back melding nicely with mild grain notes and a touch of lemon. Crisp and crushable with a clean finish. Solid for the style and a good session brew.

The head is abundant tan and creamy and sticks around for several minutes before becoming a thin layer of bubbles; it leaves a thin lacing around the glass. The body is a light burnt golden color and is mildly hazy and contains some trifling carbonation.
Light malts and fruity aromas fill your nose there is a slight metallic smell as well, but it does smell pretty good overall.
Malts and fruits start of the tasting process, hops and some mild earthy flavors finish off as you swallow. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and leaves you with a mild lemon taste.
Light bodied and smooth, but not crisp, you can feel the carbonation act up as it flows across your tongue.
Pretty smooth and it makes for a great beer during a hot day, not the most impressive but it is well worth a try.

Death Rides a Pale Horse Blonde Ale has a thin, white head, a clear, deep golden, bubbly appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, candy-like malt, a slight caramel, and a background "beer" aroma. Taste is of sweet, candied malt, caramel, butter glaze, and a pleasant, low-profile bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Death Rides a Pale Horse Blonde Ale finishes dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a nice one.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has some hints of amber hues along with faint bits of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that rapidly dissipated, leaving only a few bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of biscuit malts are present in the nose along with notes of grain and weak amounts of fruity yeast.
T: The taste has flavors of biscuit and pale malts along with hints of fruity yeast. There are faint amounts of noticeable bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and seems to have just enough underlying hops to prevent this from being too malty.

Aroma: Toasted and biscuit malts dominate the aroma.

Taste: AS with the aroma, toasted and biscuit malts dominate throughout the taste. There is a bit of wet grain flavor midway through the taste. Towards the close, some earthy hop flavors present.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant and drinkable example, it is well to see craft brewing take hold in Mexico.
