Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Light hops and malt aroma. Taste was quenching and was one that you would get from a lager in Mexico. Nice easy drinking beer. Great for the hot day.

Draft at Jerry’s. Brewed with Mexican yeasts and rice - Pale yellow with big, flotsam, white head / Light floral nose of violets and grain / Light to medium body, hint of sweetness, fat with low carbonation, creamy and smooth with good balance and finish / Delicate, elegant flavors of grain, honey, violets, and lemon / A genuinely good pale lager.

On tap. Pours with a completely clear yellow body with a somewhat large and surprisingly long lasting white head. Aromas are decently hoppy, lightly herbal, lemon, soap, grainy and clean. Lasting floral notes. Absolutely no DMS. Flavors are bready, quite malty (very nice), floral and slightly hoppy. Light minerality. Medium bitterness with a pretty neutral balance. Very clean. Fizzy, dry, malty and tasty. Really well put together. A very nice lager!

Tap @ Bittercreek: Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. The nose is light and grainy with a light biscuit and toast note, some thin husky notes and a light crisp hop quality. Fresh mouthfeel and a clean flavor with a refreshing light toasty finish. Light body. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery. Reviewed from notes. Pours a light yellow with a nice, billowing who’re head and a decent dose of lace. Nose brigs some nice grain characteristics and doesn’t have any sort of cardboard or other off flavors, which is slays a plus with this style. Taste is quite plain with a bit of bread, which is enhanced by some prickly carbonation. Light body and really smooth overall. A nice offering and something I wouldn’t mind seeing more craft breweries experimenting with. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-14-2010

Can (sample):   Very pale yellow, absolutely clear, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing, little to no carbonation.   Big straw aroma.   Seems a little macro as well, corn?   Ugh, amazingly corny on the tongue.   Holy cow this tastes like a friggen corn tortilla.   This is harder to drink than most macros.   I am fighting this next sip...   Yeah, only in small doses can I do this.   The colder the better.   Decent malt base, but feels as if its so full of other adjuncts that its difficult to enjoy.   Happy to have tried it, out of a can even, but this one just isn’t for me.

At brewpub, called ’Dark Mexican Lager:’ Golden color with a modest white head. Not sure about dark, but not sure about Mexican either. Malty and lager tastes with a light floral presence. Just a slightly more intense pale lager from what I can tell. This has been on the site for a while, yet no one has rated it... odd. Just like the name.
