My usual in a Mexican resturant. Light lager taste, sweet malt and light hops. Everything is watery, but the flavors are there ...your taste buds just have to pay attention to find them. YOU, in the back.....WAKE UP!

Some hop aroma. light yellow. standard cheap beer taste. Thin but refreshing, and nice that it comes in a brown bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 Decent for a Mexican lager. Malt aroma followed by a malty, slightly sweat taste. Smooth, little hop bite or bitterness to it. Very drinkable if unremarkable. Up there with Dos XX in my book for best of the Mexican.

Pours a very light straw color with a thin white head. Smooth and malty. Nice full mouthful...kind of syrupy with little carbonation. Very good with mexican food.

Had one of these at the bar while waiting for my table at El Palomar in Santa Cruz - Get the fish taco's (don't ask me the name...I don't speak spanish...just look for the one with Red Snapper in the description. This pours from the bottle a light straw yellow. The average fizzy white head is crap. The nose hints at sweet rolls. The flavor is sweet and floral. No someone at the bar must have offended the finish because he didn't show. Light watery and soft. This was the worst beer I had while in Cali. If this is a Pilsener, I'm John C. Holmes. This is garbage, and should be listed as an American Standard.

(bottle) It was beer, I drank it. It is another lightish beer of the mass produce kind, though I tended to like it more than most of the macro swill.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is golden yellow and a bit pale with a white head that went out fast leaving some patchy lace. Smells of lightly done malt with faint hop. Taste is mostly sweet malt, very clean with barely a hop noticed. Feel is medium bodied and easy, smooth and refreshing. This is a better Mexican lager then most.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Straw color with a centimeter of tiny white bubbles forming a lid. Very floral and pale malt aroma. Light sweet maltiness coupled with a powdered sugar-sweet floral hops flavor. I dislike this one the least of the sixer of lagers sampled this evening. A little salty in the finish. Otherwise drinkable and refreshing in a south of the border kind of way. There is actually a light malt linger that I've missed in this night session.

I picked up one of these mistaking it for "Negra Modelo" (don't ask). Not bad. But not good either.

Anything is better than Corona. This is maltier than typical lagers. Tastes like it could be a vienna style, but isn't quite as sweet, dark, or malted as many of those brews. Similar to Negra Modelo, only with more hops. This is well balanced and quite drinkable.
