Pours an orangish-straw with a slight fog to it. Head is a finger in height and white in color and doesn't last long. Aroma smells dirty. Rice, corn and some earthiness behind. Imagine smelling a plate of refined beans and spanish rice with a clump of dry soil on the edge. Flavor profile is a slight improvement. Still has a Spanish rice and corn flavor, but it comes off a little more earthy and herbal. Pilsner malts are there, but lightly. Mouth feel is a little fizzy, but stays lightly crisp with a thin consistency. Overall, a light Mexican lager. Not much to expect and not much delivered. Decent for heavy consumption on sweaterly hot days.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 4/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A touch of fruitiness, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Minimal herbal/grassy hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Solid robustness and good balance of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Pretty watery, but not bland. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.9%. Overall this is a okay pale adjunct lager. All around solid robustness and good balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful for the low ABV, despite being watery. Nice clean pils malt/grain flavors and mild earthy hop balance. A fairly enjoyable and non offensive offering.

Pours a very pale yellow color with almost no head; what little is there dissipates quickly. Smells of almost nothing else besides cereal and light toasty malt. Drinks almost the same; very watery body to the beer. Overall, one of my favorite light lagers because it's VERY easy to drink. But not something I get all the time, as I don't tend to drink light beers all that often. Decent for after a long mowing.

Free palate washer. Smells and tastes like wet farts and metal. Oh well.
