If you have to have a light adjunct lager, this ain't so bad. There's some slight malt flavor and lots of carbonation but it basically a nothing beer, no off flavors thought. If you want suds water, this could be for you.

Prevailing smell and taste of masa. On taste, like most other Mexican beers taste a lot like corn chips. Doesn't look terrible with a kind of nice golden glow, but shares it's problems with other beers of this brewery.

24 oz can. Aroma is as expected - lots of corn mash malt notes - no hops at all. Hey, it's an American Adjunct lager sooooo ya. Taste iiiiiis - better than a Bud so ya. This is my first time trying this beer so naturally I am underwhelmed. All I have to say is it tastes better than the usual suspects, i.e. Bud, Miller, Coors etc.

Pours an off-brown almond color. Head dissipates quickly. Smells skunky; slight hoppy aroma but more generic grains and rices. Tastes very bland; no hop presence and very slight variations on toasted bread. Not my favorite AAL, and at the price, you can definitely get better for cheaper.

Pretty decent, one of my go-to's. Very mild bite, but overall enjoyable taste. I would describe the smell as "skunky" but not entirely unpleasant. The after taste is very similar to a loaf of white bread. Not really a beer for tasting.
