Poured from a clear bottle into a point glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a small head of fizzy white foam. The head fades very fast, leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall, with some notes of grain and bread and a bit of corn and caramel. Along with these smells are a touch of must and hay.
Taste – The taste is like what may have been anticipated form the nose with a light grain and caramel flavor matched with some light hay. There is a touch of caramel and corn and a bit of a paper and cardboard like taste. Light notes of earth are mixed in there as well, leaving one with a rather dry and somewhat bland (for a light lager) taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is very light and thin with a medium carbonation level. Great for the style and the drinkability.
Overall – It will work on a hot day under the sun. For a light brew its OK.

10 ounce cans poured into a tumbler style pint glass and from the can.

L: Clear, pale-golden, foamy white head has moderate retention, leaves a bit of lace.
S: Not a robust nose, grainy malt, some corn.
T: More flavor than expected, sweet and malty, corn, seems under attenuated for a Light Lager, some hop flavor underneath, mild bitterness.
M: Approaches medium-weight but light enough to still be refreshing, moderate carbonation gives crisp edges.
O: Decent enough beach brew and meal beer, better than expected for style.

Bottle pour into a taster glass.
Pale straw color appearance, with a foamy white head that recedes quickly and leaves sparse sporty lacing. Grain, scallion, tea notes. Light body and carbonation.

At the hotel bar drank straight out of a small bottle.
bready cereal maltiness with a very light body. Hints of earthy spicy hops, light green apple. Not horrible but thin and watery.

A light beer to beat the heat, not to twirl your mustache with. Not a whole lot to savor, but what it lacks in flavor, it makes up in refreshment. Unassuming, crisp and subtly malty. Keeps the humidity in check and your face smiling. It reminds me of home, beautiful for what it is and what it represents.

12 ounce cans - widely available in Miami - straight out the can.
Corny, wheaty, fizzy, but delivers a nice refreshing experience when enjoyed ice cold with some comida Latino.

This one pours a clear golden yellow color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like lemon, grain, and corn.

This is super clean and drinkable, but there’s really not a lot to it. It comes in a cute little can and it’s kinda cheap at bars, so that’s something.

This is light bodied, slightly sweet, and pretty crisp.

This is really refreshing and very drinkable, but it’s also pretty bland, too.
