Drinking this with some lime is the only way to do it, otherwise this is undrinkable, and even the lime barely saves it. Not worthy of a full review as there simply is nothing going on here. A typical piss beer.

Acceptable Lawnmower beer. If thirsty enough and need to operate machinery

A- Very fast dissapating head, intense carbonation. Clear yellow body. The head really doesn't even leave a lace at top. Not good looking.

S- Sweet ethanol, not too robust. Some skunky grains.

T- Watery, very watery. There's some bitterness at the end with a hint of hops. Ethanol is in the middle. Really the ethanol and corn flavors are dominant but they are somewhat masked by the watery, metalic, rotten veggies. The best thing it has going for it is the lack of aftertaste.

M- Clean, light boddied, strong carbonation.

D- easy to drink but not worth drinking in the first place.

Notes: Nasty

Another Mexican restuarant offering. I must always try to stop them. They try to stick a lime in my beer. I don't like that.

This comes in the clear bottle which almost guarantees skunk.

This pours rather flat looking with strong skunk. Taste is grainy and a hair malty. The skunk tastes too. Mouthfeel is overcarbonated. Drinkability suffers due to the skunk. I know we are not supposed to review skunk beer, but you think these people would figure it out. Everyone I have ever drank is the same and it does not appeal to me.

GLASS: Pilsener Glass

24oz Bottle (Purchased in Kansas/full-strength)

Now, this one actually looks like urine. From the piss-yellow color of the liquid, to the foamy, white, head that forms and rapidly dissipates. No lacing.
(This is pretty much what adjunct lagers are supposed to look like though...)

Not much to the smell. Light hint of skunk spray. Light trace of lime (although I did NOT add one). Mild grainy presence.

Light graininess. Mild sweetness. Light touch of corn.

Medium-bodied with a medium carbonation level. Very smooth, lightly clean, yet maintains a hint of substance.

It's cold, wet and lightly sweet. You could definitely do worse.

Clear straw color. Barely no head, lasting 30 seconds. Average legs and activity.

Faint sweet aromas and flavors of corn, syrup, citrus, slightly skunky and metallic.

Light body with prickly carbonation. Short and weak smoky finish.

Overall : Faint flavors but good freshness. The sugar is good and does not feel artificial like most macro brands.
