The bottle is clear, the label looks like it was printed at home. And the beer? Well that's just a yellow urine no head kind of situation. Aroma was water and corn sweetener.

How old was this bottle? It was carbonated like a huge imperial stout, not a lager. Oxidized cardboard feels. The notion of hops and barley is lost on this beer.

I mean seriously, this is worse than Corona.

I remember this beer was decent as a teenager because it was largely water and was relatively 'rare' so you looked unique drinking it. Well, once the palate got accustomed to Sierra Nevada, it was all over for this beer.

Pours out of a clear bottle. That will knock your appearance score down right away. But the bland appearance and turgid pour didn't save this beer from developing no head. Truly did lack carbonation. Aroma was slightly, mildly corny, I suspect the high quotient of water here kept the offensiveness to a minimum.

No discernable hop or malt character. Lame carbonation keeps it from even being somewhat light or spritzy, tastes like oxidized old beer whose character has left this realm. Really, this is probably best to drink in Mexico, as its just water, and since its went through some kind of brewing process, it is debateable how quick this would give you Montezuma's revenge. Water, water everywhere, and not a drop of good beer to drink.

The only real quality this has, is that water is better than something totally offputting and offensive that actually tastes like shit. This is just a shitty example of a beer. A 1 oz beer that someone spilled 11 oz. of water in.
