Just had a Victoria while waiting for my take out; unfortunately, it was better. This was too sweet for me, while very representative of the style, the body was off and/or carbonation was too low. Corn, grainy, sweet.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale gold with a small white head. The aroma is AAL corn and grain, but a nice aroma. The taste is crisp and very smooth. Like a Miller Lite but with flavor. Overall, I believe this is the first adjunct lager I have had from a micro brewery. It was a good beer.

not a bad brew, I like when craft breweries do this kind of thing, taking a page out of the BMC book. I certainly like this a lot better than anything those big guys make, but its a pretty average beer even if it is a craft one. yellow and clear in color, but it looks flat, and there is no head on it at all. unimpressive for sure. it smells alright though, a little corny sweet maybe, but pretty standard. two row barley and just a slight bittering hop presence. the flavor is fresh, which I like a lot, mild cereals and a little sweetness like the nose suggests. grassy hop on the finish, something of the European persuasion there, and even though its woefully under carbonated, I find it refreshing because of how light it is. more bubbles would be ideal, but the light body and low alcohol make it real easy drinking, a good segue into or out of a session of heavier beers. good not great, which is my general consensus on 21st amendment overall so far in my experience. nothing has really floored me, but none of it has been bad...

Not sure what they're going for here. A blend of a Vienna-style lager with South-of-the-border cerveza, it's not bad, but is generally the type of beer craft lovers bypass. Found in a variety 12-pack, I'll save the rest for when the Corona fans in my life come by.

When I pulled this can out of the variety pack, I was afraid it was a Mexican lager. I was sadly disappointed. Smells corny. Taste is consistent. Weak, Bleh. Not my style. Regardless, to have DMS in the nose and mouth is Meh.

Love the brewer, dont love the style. Why?

A: into a pint glass, color is straw, transparent, head is white large bubbles that dissipates immediately to nada. behold a pale, limp glass.

S: Aroma is corn and grass, with a wheat/biscuit/bread whiff.

T: Taste is fairly crisp, and the best part, traditional adjunct lager with a corn flavor, lots of cracker. OK I'd drink this over Corona, but why?

F: mouthfeel is a crisp and drying but too thin.

O: Easy drinking cerveza with a bit more biscuit than most.

pours light gold with a thin head.

smells like sweet corn, very simple and straightforward.

taste is clean and simple. slight bitterness but otherwise plain. goes down smooth, but nothing special about it. would pound this the same as natty light.

overall not bad but nothing special. decent for an adjunct

Clear, straw color with absolutely no head after a few seconds, doesn't look good at all. Aroma is sweet and grainy, you can tell it has adjuncts in it. Taste starts also sweet and grainy, a slight tartness and gets balanced with some hop bitterness in the finish. Body is quite light and fizzy. Overall it's pretty clean but the sweetness makes it a bit hard to swallow.

Poured into a pint glass, color is straw, transparent, head is off white large bubbles that dissipates nearly immediately to nothing.

Aroma is heavy towards adjuncts, but with a prominent wheat/biscuit/bread component.

Taste is crisp, carbonated, traditional adjunct lager with a corny flavor, less wheat/biscuit than aroma.

mouthfeel is a bit crisp and drying from the carbonation, but not a detractor.

Overall, a solid easy drinking cerveza with a bit more biscuit like presence. After reviewing the description on 21st amendment the bready-like component seems to becoming from the vienna/corn combo
