Look: Pale straw in colour, light lacing, drank from the bottle so no head. To be honest, looks like piss.

Smell: Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. Slightly skunky, smells like a weak (in flavour) Euro Pale Lager.

Taste: Bland to start, difficult to pull apart any flavours. Perhaps a bit of grain or corn, with a lingering aftertaste that's just generally unpleasant.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation - fizzes up like a soft drink on the tongue, but feels quite thin and watery.

Overall: I felt that beers like Corona and Sol get a hard time on this site, but going from this session, it's fairly deserved. There really isn't much to taste from this beer. However, I do think that I'd enjoy this one ICE cold, on a hot day, with a wedge of lime in the neck. The beer itself has a refreshing quality already but that's more to do with the feel and coldness than anything else.

Pale yellow, almost clear, with a sudsy white head. Smell is skunky grain and a slight sweet malt, light smell that isn't very appealing. Taste is light corn and grain, finish is salty water with a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel starts out full but finishes like tap water.

Overall, this is a weak tasting beer that is very light. Tastes alright with some lime wedges on a hot day, but there are much better alternatives. Someone once described this to me as 'good beer'. I would disagree.

Pours a very pale gold yellow with a big white foamy head that lasts about a minute. There is absolutely no lacing on the glass. Aroma is of adjunct mainly corn and some skunk. taste is same with a very bitter after taste. Mouthfeel is very thin. The lime and salt really help cover up the taste.
