Carta Blanca pours a clear, golden color with a decent fizzy white head.  It has very mild hops, in fact, barely detectable. As a typical American Adjunct Lager style, it has a slight corn or grassy nose to it.

Start to finish, it has a light mouth feel finishing clean and crisp.  Nothing super special about it, but certainly a drinkable beer. I'd give it a slight edge over Corona.

Honestly, you snobs just like to downvote anything that's commercial. For the style, this is a damn good beer. Malty, off sweetness, light body, crisp, dry, and crushable. The 32 oz (Caguama) is so much better than the single cans of 12oz bottles. I can't put my finger on it, but the tall boys are the best!

Decent beer to drink when just relaxing so try a six pack.

this beer is light and refreshing like cold water on a hot day when you are parched and dying of thirst. tastes like a light beer goers down easy without any flavor or special attributes.

From notes taken 07/24/17:

Mostly clear, fine-hazed pink-hued golden amber. Whitish fizzle head of lower moderate retention. Smells like black olives and cooked corn. Interesting, right? Taste is also corn-like, fairly sweet and grassy, as well a floral, with a mildly bitter finish. Grows on me a little. Light-bodied, with consistently active, fine suds.

Pours with a light malt and hop aroma and a golden amber color with a short head, which fades to a thin lace. Medium carbination compliments the bitter hop flavor. This is a light bodied beer, a bit thin, but not really watery. There is a touch of off-sweetness to the malt palate, but minimal for the style.

12oz bottled January 2018 & marked bb January 2019 poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temp 4.5% ABV. The beer pours bright light straw yellow in color with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is faint with light malt and a bit of yeast. The taste is more light malt with a little floral hops and a touch of corny aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a noticeable soapy/oily finish that suggests the lagering could have been cleaner, but it's far better than most AAL. Overall, very good AAL.

A smooth front with a yeast follow through. Grainy undertones. Doesn't stand out but it would be a good craft gateway beer.

Taste rating in words: The Cool breeze through a field of crop.

It has a best before date on the 32 ounce bottle. $2.99 for a 32 ounce bottle is not a bad thing in my opinion. The smell is not the best but it taste okay. Lively carbonated & refreshing. After about 20 minutes in the pilsner glass I notice this eggy soury artificial sweet poisonous type of taste oh no! there is cheap nasty adjunct filler like corn syrup or diacetyl in here. YUCK! I tasted this same poison in Genesee Cream Ale & Corona Extra. I don't recommend this beer. A good portion or this 32 oz bottle went down the kitchen sink. Cheers! D- (60-64) score range
