This easy-drinking light lager has a nice mild character. Two-Row pale malt and the use of flaked oats and white wheat give the beer a clean, crisp character with a little sweetness, light body and smooth mouthfeel. Very low bitterness. Easy drinking and satisfying!

12oz can. Bottom stamp reads 'CANNED ON 09/06/23'. Purchased at a convenience store in Austin Nevada.
Mostly clear, pale gold colored body. One thick finger of white head, which stays around as a thin cap. Leaves behind some short strings of lacing.
Aroma of lightly toasted malts, adjunct grains, and floral hops.
Taste is sweet from the lightly toasted malts and adjunct grains (some sharpness from the wheat). Floral and herbal hops. Some sulfur. Malty aftertaste.
Medium mouth feel. Clean and crisp finish. Good carbonation.
Easy drinking lager with low bitterness.

Bright gold color, clear, with a moderate off-white head. Nose is very light, and slightly grainy. Quite clean flavor, with low bitterness, not too grainy, nor particularly malty. It is square on the style of "inoffensive drinking beer". Probably best drunk with food, instead of on its own like I'm doing now.

L: beautiful caramel color with thick super light brown sudsy head slow carbonation streams light retention very small cap. It’s called an American lager but she’s a little dark like they threw some roasted malts in instead of just 2 row oats and white wheat if that’s all they used it wouldn’t of made this so dark
S: super super deep caramel smell there’s absolutely no way they didn’t use a type of roasted barley but the smell is great very malty and sweet
T: light sour mash flavor also a light roast caramel at the back end low bitterness slight alcohol taste at the end
F: medium to thick bodied low on carbonation finishes dry
O: overall it’s an okay beer, the only problem is it’s labeled as an American lager and I feel like it’s more of a English brown ale

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades very fast, leaving a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall, consisting mainly of a light grainy and citrus smell. Mixed with these aromas comes notes of caramel and a touch of toast.
Taste – The taste begins with a grainy malt flavor mixed with some bready tastes and a little bit of a caramel sweetness. As the taste advances the graininess fades a bit all while a light citrus flavor develops, leaving on with a rather easy going and slightly grainy taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is medium in thickness with a carbonation level that is moderate as well. I would have liked to see a little thinner of a body and higher carbonation for the style and flavors, but overall the feel was alright.
Overall – A decent easy drinking Mexican lager, with a bit more flavor than the norm.

Look: Very hazy, yellow. Not at all what a Mexican style lager looks like.
Smell: Sour grain, mineral water.
Taste: Tastes like an AAL but then there’s a sour quality that hits you on the backend.
Mouthfeel: Heavy, feels thick and clings to your mouth. Weird.
Overall: Big waste of money. It’s a gimmick, like the tourist trap restaurants on the river walk in San Antonio. Avoid......

Gold with a medium white colored head.

Smells of noble hops from a distance. Smells of hay and a bit soapy. Scent of lager malt and a soda cracker scent. It is significantly malty from a distance.

Starts out very malty. Very yeasty and bready flavor. Hops are very grassy. Much more flavorful than any mass produced Lager.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall much more flavorful than pretty much anything from Mexico. Quite good.
