look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

Aroma: Sweet corn-like aroma, slight skunk character, and saltine cracker-like character in the background. No hop or malt presence detected.

Appearance: Fizzy, pale yellow, crystal clear with no head retention.

Flavor: Very watery up front, a little bit of white bread character, some corn flavor, and a hint of skunk all dominate the palate. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, high carbonation. No warmth, creaminess, or astringency.

Overall impression: Meh. It is what it is. The skunk character is a little too much for me and I'm assuming it's a bottle characteristic because I've had the tap version and it's somewhat tolerable. If I wasn't in Cancun looking over the Gulf this would be a horrible way to spend a New Beer Sunday. Given the overall purpose, I'm willing to overlook this issue. Won't ever have again unless I'm stuck in a Mexican resort.
