Superior 4.6% has a thin, white head, a clear, straw appearance, with lots of fairly large white chunks, suspended, throughout. Lots of glass lacing left behind. The aroma is of a sharp spice note, of some sort and a strange green apple or grape skin smell. Taste is somewhat muted, but one will pick up that odd grape or apple thing. Mouthfeel is medium, and Superior Original finishes crisp and easy going. RJT

Serving Type: 355 mL Bottle

A- Pours a pale golden colour with a 2 finger white head. Surprisingly good head retention for an AAL. Nothing to speak of for lacing.

S- Light, Sweet malt and corn notes. Nothing in the way of bitterness. Doesn't seem to be well balanced going off of the aroma.

T- Sweet grain and corn notes from the aroma but well balanced with a slight spicy hop presence.

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy drinking without being watery (like a lot of AAL's tend to do).

O- No, Superior isn't the perfect AAL (is there one?) but it sure is tasty. If you're in Mexico (or anywhere else that it's sold), I recommend that you give it a try, especially over Budweiser, Corona, etc.
