UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Straw yellow with slight pure white fluffy head. Spicy hoppy nose. Clear and quenching with well blended spicy hop finish. Cascade?

I don't know exactly what it was about this but i dind't like it. one was ok, but after that it got difficult to have anymore. I am a hops fan, but this one just doesn't do it for me.

wow...pale golden, clear, nice white foamy head. crap there are actual real hops in the aroma...i'm blown away! only a slight cardboard quality to this one and i swear it has at least as many hops as half the pale ales out there. it's not true to the style at all, so i'm a bit perplexed on how to rate this..i think i'll just rate it on my preference.

Light gold in color. Alcohol and hop aroma. Bitter taste and then a dry palate.

Whoa, this was kind of hoppy. Not as dark as I was hoping, but not to bad for what it is.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 Bottle. This is what I drink in Mexico. It is a typical Mexican/American non beer but if you try real hard there is slightly more flavor and some increased hoppiness over the other widely available Mexican beers

Very light golden color. Fizzy head which dissipates. Smooth watery flavor with slight bit of bitterness in the end. Pilsener? No! But maybe it is safer than the water in Mexico.

Aroma is next to nothing! Which scores points over beers that smell like rotten garbage. Appearance is yellow. Flavor has a nice splash of malt with a slight bitterness. Better than I expected. I figured it would be in the same category as all the other crappy lagers that come out of Mexico. This may be your best choice at a Mexican Restaurant. Decent.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2003
I was almost fooled like TheDean was but read the label before purchasing.Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was mildly malty and lightly sweet with a hint of hops coming through.The taste was much the same,not real terrible tasting but finishable and i guess maybe even worth trying a few more.It has a flavor that seemed better then some macro's in this country anyway and was easy to drink and didn't need any additive to make it more pallatable like Corona.Decent brew and worth trying atleast once.

Not as good as most other Mexican beers, this one is rather bland when compared to Corona, Pacifico, etc. It is a light color with a head and aroma as weak as the flavor.
