look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours golden straw color with perfect clarity. Only a thin head of loose bubbles that fell pretty fast and left a very thin ring. No lace. Nose is clean. There is a brief hit of mild skunk that fades to reveal sweet grain and a bit of corn sweetness. No fruity esters at all. Taste is light and lively with carbonation. It bites the tongue a bit with bubbles and the grain is husky and lightly sweet. There are no off flavors. The body is thin and watery. The beer is crisp and refreshing. Thirst quenching. It finishes dry with a small touch of hop bitter and the faintest hint of spice in the very last moment of the swallow and it's dry.

This is not at all unpleasant. It is not sour, it is not offensive, The corn sweetness is not syrupy and the lager character is light. It's called a light lager. it's easy to drink and because it does not have any complex flavors it would compliment a variety of food, from Chinese, to Mexican to Italian or just a pastrami sandwich. You don't have to think about this beer it drinks as easily as water with a sessionable abv. There is a faint odor of sulfur that develops as it warms.

look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

drank 1 because it was in the bottom of the cooler where I was . nothing else left. tried it and vowed I would never have another. appearance- i've given better looking urine samples smell- smells like sugar pops taste- not enough fruit in the world to make this taste go away mouthfeel- carbonation and bubbles overall- this beer and the people from mexico should be sent packing back across the border
