12oz can at fridge temp poured into a pint glass.

Clear light yellow golden color, the slightest bit of weird stringy sediment. White head settles to a thin retentive layer, no real lace.

Not much aroma. Sweet corny grain and just a hint of mineral water.

Buttery corny grain, just a hint of mineral water. Bland.

Smooth slightly bitey high carbonation. Watery light mouthfeel.

Pretty much like most adjunct lagers, nothing going on. AVOID!

Appearance : looks like a typical American adjunct lager

Smell: I only smell grains.

Taste: You can taste the healy adjuncty of corn , metallic. the aftertaste is long and horribly rotten. If you drank this quick it can be drankable.

Bottle purchased and drank at Mariachi's Grill in Henrietta, NY.

A Corona knockoff that's a little bit better than Corona, but still pretty offensive.

It's a clear golden yellow, with a one inch fizzy, ugly looking head. Not much lacing.

Smells like essentially nothing. A tiny bit of skunk.

Tastes like basically nothing, either. A little bit metallic and skunky, with some cooked grain taste as well, and a little bit of citrus. Just weak, bland, and offensive flavors all around.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel and carbonation.

This one was a stinker, there are better beers to drink with Mexican food for sure.

Poured this American Adjunct Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a pale yellow color, produced a decent white head, average retention and does leave a little lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of mostly corn- not very appealing. Light in body, the foundation is derived from corn and some husky grain. There is a slight bit of hop bitterness but overall, not very complex, not very flavorful.

bad, but not that that bad. its better than a corona, not better than a pacifico, in my humble opinion. the color is straight piss, it really looks pee from someone that's rather dehydrated. there is a decent head on it though, and with a lime wedge it can look appealing after a hot day of work. the flavor is obviously adjuncty, corn heavy, syrupy, metallic, and a little bit decomposing, but taken in a big gulp from the bottle, its passable in some ways. the aftertaste is long and rotten though, yikes. fine carbonation but a little thick for a beer that's supposed to be a summer slammer like this one is. I usually hold the fruit in all beers I drink, but this beer is really only tolerable in quantity with a lime wedge, otherwise its pretty foul. time and a place though, time and a place...
