I usually don't write reviews from beers that I try at a restaurant but this one I will because I don't think that I missed anything.

I tried this at Old Chicago as part of their Cinco de Mayo mini tour

A-bright yellow with a very fluffy white head that fades quickly with no lacing

S-not much smell at all except for a faint corn/grain presence

T-much like the smell, not much there except maybe a hint of corn

M-thin and watery

O-fizzy, yellow and wet not that good if you are looking for flavor. Mexican version of BMC just another macro brew

Served with a wedge of lime.

Appearance- Pours a clear golden yellow with a half a finger width of bubbly head that quickly recedes.

Smell- Corn, grains, skunkiness. Not much else to the smell.

Taste- Not really much to this one. You get the corn, grains, and water. The lime wedge helps to give this beer a boost.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A touch watery but not as watery as other macros.

Overall- A standard adjunct lager. Nothing special in terms of flavour. A patio or beach beer at best (this is what this beer is known for). Thank heaven for the creation of limes to make this brew a tad better.
