Copper, little carbonation, a half finger of white head.

Malts, cabbage, a little herbal quality.

Not sweet but like a near beer malty taste, some herbal notes.

Dry, soda like quality carbonation, strangely dry, light body that doesn't match the sweet malt notes on the tongue.

Drank while watching Independence Day Resurgence at the cinema in Chiang Mai. Seen this one around, decided to try it. June 27th, 2016.

Pretty much the same as Corona. Tastes like nothing, feels like drinking carbonated water. I liked the smell though.

Yet another wierd lager style beer being imported into the UK, this one is supposed to be Mexican, but is brewed in Germany by Krombacher, incredible when you consider it all really.

Anyway, the clear 275cl bottle was poured into a Veltins stemmed tulip glass. Exceedingly pale gold in colour, the white head soon fell away to a thin covering and collar.

Grass, wheat and corned beef aromas hit my nose, not a nice combination.

Tasteless to be honest, this beer is the base for flavoured, trendy, kids beers (Tequila, white rum, etc). I can see why the want to add some flavours.

Weak and watery, no hint of the 4.7%ABV it claims to have within.

Why do I buy these things? So I can review them on BA of course, plus one day I might find the perfect beer, not likely to be a lager/pilsner, but my quest goes on.
