24oz can into imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a clear light golden color with a thin quarter inch of fizzy bright white head that faded into a foamy film and collar. A couple patches of wispy lace was left down the glass.
S: I get corn, peppery hops, and an off putting cheap grainy quality. Smells very light and watery.
T: Light malt backbone, grain, corn, and mild spice. Slight yeasty quality, mild sulfer, mild vegetal. Not much flavor, but nothing overly offensive. Very plain and watery. There’s a synthetic sweetness in the aftertaste, and maybe a light metallic quality that I’m not loving.
M: Light body, light and watery mouthfeel, crisp and clean. Carbonation is low, soft, and smooth.
O: A flavorless pilsner. Not offensive, but there are much better examples, even among the light macro swill, that I’d rather drink.

I haven't had one of these light El Cheapo beers for a while. So I was surprised that it's sort of drinkable as a watery gulp. But then the corn and club soda taste take over. There is something like hops, I am thinking, but then it turns soapy.

This stuff even looks cheap in the glass. The coarse bubbles peter out quickly. Sort of sweet and grainy. Not even refreshing, though if you were seriously sweating and gasping from thirst it would be welcome enough. But rated as a Czech Pilsener it's laughable. From the 12 oz bottle with the longest neck I have ever seen.

Pours a clear light golden yellow. A burst of carbonation and one finger of white head quickly give way, leaving a lethargic yellow liquid. Looks like ginger ale, but with less fizz.

Smell is lager yeast, some light hops, and a strong background hit of adjuncts.

Tastes slightly wheaty, slightly corny, with an odd chalky bitterness that comes in for the finish. Thin and meh.

Light body, almost flat. Not good, in my opinion. Watery, but with a lingering chalky feel on the tongue that I really don't like.

Not impressed. Whatever this beer is, I don't think it's very good. Minimal flavor, and what's there isn't great.

Clear yellow colored beer with a tiny white head.

Smells lightly of toasted grain. Mildly sweet smelling and that is about it..

Starts out mildly sweet and mild noble hop. No real bitterness just clean beer flavor. Very mild taste.

Mouthfeel is seltzer water.

Overall it isn't offensive at all. The downside though is that it is not very flavorful. A suitable substitute for water if you ever need it in Mexico.

Just picked up a case for $10. Yes, a case. Don't know why it was so cheap, but obviously...I couldn't say no.

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it because it wasn't awful.
