I drank this from a can into a glass in Cabo San lucas.

It pours a light clear gold with a white head, not much head or lacing.

The aroma is light hops and a lot of skunk. The taste is basically the same. The mouthfeel is less than water, is that possible? Drinkable is ok but what's the point with the abv.

This is like Tecate but worst, can you imagine?

Pours clear yellow with a super white head that has no retention, pours like a soda.

Seriously has no aroma, I can't smell a thing, when I poured it the head gave of some aroma but it was to fleeting for me to remember what it was

Can hardly taste a thing either, I can taste some malt so I know it's there, I can taste some bitterness and the alcohol bit it's still like nothing, its all so faint!

Mouthfeel is terrible, it's to watery and the crazy forced carbonation makes it worse for me.

Drinkability? No, the lack of anything makes this a totally undrinkable beer for me, no flavor, no anything.

Sigh I know people who swear by this beer and drink it all the time and I'm left wondering what's the point?

Went on a little family vacation to mexico and the mini fridge was stocked with these. Not normlly a fan of light beer on general but a ticker is gonna tick. Poured from the can to a glass...look was pale yellow with a big fizzy lager head and some visible carb, loos like a light beer and not all that appetizing but dont judge a book by its cover, right? Nose is corn and grain. Flavor is pretty much absent, but what is there is grainy and fairlt meh. Mouth is light and fizzy. I would say that this is the kind of beer you can drink all day but honestly i am nit going to make it through the can. Call me a beer snob but this just isnt good.

it's like drinking water with a slight beer taste (a very cheap beer taste).
