Grumbo (1519) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle at a restaurant in London. Poured golden with a small white head. Light malty aroma with some floral and citrus notes. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Light body, slight creaminess to texture. Malty finish. It’s ok.

JorgeLee (1803) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle, consumed in the hotel room in Playa del Carmen with Don Sirloin takeaway. Deepish yellow hint of gold. This has a touch more backbone and less grim corn than most Mexican lagers. Some proper malt and an elusive waft of hop flavour, if still lacking bitterness. Not terrible.

caribou43 (657) - Chavannes-près-Renens, SWITZERLAND - DEC 8, 2015
When I was living in Mexico, it was one of my favourite beer "apart of some local beers". It is a typical light pils not too bad. The colour is clear yellow, light foam and regular carbonation. There is a nice mix of malt and some hops. It is a decent beer, unfortunately heineken bought it. In South America and in Mexico like in Switzerland are two or three big groups eating the business, fortunately that some new brewers make betters products but for Mexican and Peruvian people are too expensive.

tfontana (729) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle from Cafe Azteca, Lawrence MA. Appearance is clear light brown with small head and mild sparkle. Aroma is mild bready malts. Taste is as nose--straightforward pleasant mild malty sweetness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and average to lively carbonation. Overall, not bad in the context of mild beers you would have at a Mexican restaurant. On par with Dos Equis Amber and slightly below Negra Modelo but above others.

I like this brew on hot Mexican day fishing. Clear orange great carbonation. Pretty malty for light Mexican brew. Really flavorful for a light Mexican lager as well.

Ah Mexico. Home of the taco, burrito and Bohemia clasica. A fine golden pilsner. You don’t even need to jam the lime down the bottles throat to drink this stuff, it tastes pretty good! It also tastes good with the lime though, so just be prepared for a treat either way you drink it.

Bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Faint malt aroma. Taste is light bodied with a slight sweet corn flavor.
