Yellow color with an almost inexistent fluffy head that vanishes quickly.
Initial weird aroma like a concentrated adjunct lager with fusel alcohols, corn and some lemon. Hello? Should I sip this? Later improves a bit.
Predominant flavor of acid lemon and a mild corn syrup.
Light body with good carbonation.
I hated, but it does deliver the promise, a Mexican lager, which is not necessarily a good thing... Anyway I gave some extra points given the strong lemon hint mimicking a Sol/Corona with a slice of it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pils glass.

3.5 A: Clear light yellow color. Three fingers of frothy white head with average retention and some spotty lacing.

2.5 S: Lightly grainy with nearly no hop contribution (maybe a touch grassy). Despite pretty much nothing going on, this is not quite clean with some soft muddling aroma in there.

2.0 T: Incredibly boring and on the border of tasteless. Just a light white rice-iness to it.

2.5 M: Light body. Too light even for what it is. Good moderate carbonation. Not completely smooth due to the not quite clean flavor.

2.5 D: Not impressed. I'm drink this over a lot of AALs, but not because it's good. Rather, because it's slightly less bad.

I had this on tap at Local Option...Pours a pissy clear light gold with some watery carbonation...Not much aroma a little hops mostly light skunk...The taste is the same, light watery, boring, tasteless, just plain old garbage from SKA...The feel is lighter than water.

A-Pours a pretty clear and effervescent straw color with a finger of white head.

S-Spicy Saaz hop notes with some light malt character to back it up with a bit of balsamic vinegar.

T-Some green apple notes with slightly spicy hops presence; thankfully the vinegar notes didn't come through here.

M-Thin bodied with low carbonation and a very slick feel.

D-This one is alright, but I don't think I'd seek it out again. I;m just not digging the taste on this one.

12 oz can pours a crystal clear gold color with a small white head. Looks the part, just like any other AAL.

Nose is sweet and grainy. Light, floral saaz hops are much less prevalent as I thought they would be...and prefer. Smells like a honeyed blonde ale. More yeast presence than most lagers.

Taste shows some grainy malt, but it really lacks the cleanliness of a well-brewed lager. The yeast is biscuity and even has some light fruit. Hops provide a snappy bitterness on the finish, but I wouldnt mind a little hop flavor here. Not really all that impressed with this one, and waaay too expensive at $10 a sixer to compete in a mundane style category. Id rather buy Michelob at less than 7 bucks if I want a crisp all-malt pale lager.
