(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.

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.

My goodness, another macro swill beer that actually turned out much better than expected. Very typical pilsneresque pour with a soapy white head and a clear, slightly carbonated light yellow appearance. The aroma lends hints of corn, wheat, plastic, skunked hops from the icky brown bottle, and lime. The flavor actually is mildly attractive in that there is no corny sweetness which in itself is pleasant. It consists of a mild wheaty, very slightly corny and limey flavor. Unfortunately it leads into its usual macro swill ending which is dry, cardboardy and wet maltiness. Overall i think i expected this to be much worse, but it really was acceptable for a readily available import. Carbonation levels are not crazy..they are held in check fairly well. Another beer down from Femsa....

Compared to most other Mexican brews, this is quite good. Although still on the light side, this tastes adjunctless and has decent malt and hop flavor.

Only slightly better than a typical macro pils. Aroma and flavor suggested some mild hops presence and some subtle lime flavor.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2003
The aroma is very sweet and hoppy. The color is yellow and it has a fast disappearing head. The flavor is pretty sweet of an OK malt - it seems that there has only been used aroma hops, since it totally lacks bitterness to balance the sweetness. A below average pilsener.

Braudog (5739) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Poured like a standard American lager ... light, fizzy and white-headed. Bit of a starchy grain nose, but actually a pleasantly surprising smooth and light malt-flavored beer. Not nearly as bad as I anticipated.
