12oz can consumed while in Mexico, since this is literally everywhere

Pours a clear piss-yellow with a fizzy white head bubbling on top. Dissolves fairly quickly, leaving little behind.

Familiar Mexican adjunct nose with corn and steely grain. Faint sweetness and crackers.

Mmm...more corn and grain throughout the "profile." Watery and fairly limp as far as any sort of discernible flavor goes. Finishes with a lingering unpleasant steely bitterness.

Light body, high carbonation, watery and thin on the tongue. There's plenty of poor beer in Mexico (as well as some up and coming craft breweries), but this was one of the worst.

Tall boy can into a pint glass at my house on July 19, 2012. Two fingers of head. Clear honey color, a bit like dehydrated urine. Light frothy head with minimal retention. Looked a bit like spit.

Smelled corn, honey, strong alcohol bite, grain, bread and cereal.

Tasted similar to the smell. Corn, light honey, bread, grain, cereal with a minimal amount of alcohol.

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt watery finish.

Not a bad beer for the type. I’m trying to rate these more to the style and will probably go back and rate all the usual suspects.

12floz. bottle. Lager glass. (From my notes: Bought at “Mexican Week” in a mall. Enjoyed at home). Pale straw color. Clear appearance. With froth. Minimal & brief crown. Adjunct aromas –corn, rice, grain…- & subtle maltiness to the nose. Herbal touch, too. Sweet malty flavor, no hoppiness. Crisp sensation. Light body. High carbonation. Sweetness lingers into a brief bitter finish. Watery texture. Easy drinkability.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pale yellow with a small white head that disspates almost immediately leaving no lacing. The carbonation also sucks. PATHETIC.

Smell: Almost no smell, but a tinge of sweet malt.

Taste: Very little flavor. Sweet malt/corn.

Mouthfeel: Watery with O.K. carbonation. It's sad when the best part of the beer is mouthfeel, especially when mouthfeel is average at best.

Good session beer. Thirst quenching but very little taste. This is an excellent substitute for water.
