No freshness dating.
Bottle is stamped

A= Pours a translucent pale yellow color with a thin skin of head on the top and little lacing.

S= Smells like beer. Not much in the name of hops or malt really just a bready fermented beer smell.

T= The taste is of beer. A small amount of almost a sour punch to it without being sour. A nice light flavor. Reminds me of most adjunct lagers only with less taste making it more drinkable manybe?

M= Feels bright and carbonated.

O= This isn't a bad beer for being an AAL. It actually tastes very much like nothing which I assume is what they were going for. Mission accomplished.

Poured this 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy straw color, produced a thin white head, poor retention, and leaves little to no lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malted grain, cooked corn and fruit...grape?...Light in body, this brew featured a grain base, some grape or prune like fruitiness and finishes dry. Overall, its a lawnmower beer. Classic cheap Mexican version of an American Lager. Don't waste your time. Prost!

Part of a BEERS OF THE WORLD package. I had this one before during holidaying in Mexico, only from a can back then.
First things first, a long neck bottle of 355 ml, best before 2013, ABV at 4,5%, with only a front label. Ingredients are written in german on the label and except from the usual water, malts and hops, includes also rice and papain.
Once poured it gave me a golden yellow beer, with one finger of head, with an average retention. Head leaves a thin layer on top of the beer once gone, no lacing whatsoever though.Medium activity in the glass, in the form of bubbles.
The smell was quite sweet and mostly of malts. I can't really smell any rice grains, but at least it doesn't have the corn smell I had experienced when I drunk it from a can. Corn is also abscent from the taste, it's so much different from the one I had back there. This one has a sweet malty taste and is as easily drinkable as any other lager, with a very discreet bitter aftertaste.
Thin on the body with moderate carbonation. Dry on the palate.
To conlude, this was so much different from the one I had from a can, I would prefer it over Corona and Sol any given time.
