glassware: Warsteiner pokal...occasion: uncertain at this point...appearance: frothy foam that leavees a trace but thinly so; another clear body, with sparce effervescence.... aroma: thin, pingy scent--as expected...palate: effervescent, thin body that skips the teeth and heads straight for the throat...taste: empty pilsner that doesn't have Tecate's strength or Corona's charm--and that's not saying much...overall: fulfills its duty of quenching and complimenting Mexican food--little other reason to soak up this sun!

Had this a a great Mexican restaurant, but they didn't not give me a glass. clear bottle showed me bright yellow with some fizz and after a big swig, a white foamy head. What I expected.

Stuck my nose to the bottle - corny grain and some light vegetal bitter notes. Adjunct all the way baby! But, I didn't hate the nose on this either, which is a plus.

Ok, time to get back down to earth. Food washer 101 here. Corny, light grain, light bitterness, but no sour palate clearing aftertaste (see bud light). SO -- for what it is, it was lacking much, but lacked that element which makes most of us gag.

Fizzy and lighter bodied. What I expected and needed from this beer. Why do other reviews screw these guys on feel? It is exactly what it needs to be.

Considering how downhill this could have gone, not the worst. Uh, NOTHING you'd want a six of, but a single with some decent food, or lawnmower beer -- then ok.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the brew pours a clear straw gold color with about a half inch white head that doesn't stay around for too long. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready malt, and some corn. Taste is the same as the aroma, it's mostly sweet and grainy/bready malt along with some corn/adjuncts. Surprisingly with the clear bottle it's not skunky at all, so I assume this bottle hasn't been sitting around for too long. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's easy to drink and is well carbonated. Picked this up as a single at Andersons, might as well tick it. And this really wasn't too bad at all, worth a try at least once!

Into a pint glass (also had in a pilsener, nothing changed):

A: clear straw yellow body with super light carbonation rising and a half finger white head that quickly dies, no lacing is around the sides of the glass.

S: faint corn and rice, not much else.

T: basically the same.

M: light, watery and great drinkability.

O: too drinkable for me, however, it is an AAL, so, whaddaya say - something I probably won't seek out again, but if I wanted to get wasted quickly after mowing the lawn, gimme some sol.

A:The look of the beer is a dark gold almost amberish color. Nice to look at.

S: Skunky wet grass.

T: Tastes like a Corona without being so watered down. Sweet almost citrousy. I do however get a lot more skunk flavor which makes this beer taste pretty gross.

M: Average carbonation with a light watery body. Crisp and clean.

O: It is not too bad, compared to beers in the same style like Corona or Bud, but the only reason to buy this is if you want to look different from the person drinking the Corona or Bud. Much better beers in this style and price range.
