Well... I have mixed feelings about this one. In the context of a Mexican restaurant, it seemed alright. Poured into a glass, however, the weak head, dirty-wheat-sugar aftertaste, and pale complexion placed it squarely in the commercial mass-market schwill category. Is there such a thing? At least, it's floating somewhere at the top of that category. You could certainly do worse (I know I have).

Not bad for a dirty Mexican beer. I'd put it between Tecate and Negra Modelo. Pretty refreshing I suppose. It would be great for a hot summer's morn. Especially if I've been picking cotton up until that point.

I don't know why, but I like this beer when it comes to Mex beers. It has a crisp taste and a nice finish that goes really well with Chile Colorado. Clean profile with a slightly sweet note to it and finishes nicely with a hop bang...

Typical light golden color and white head start this one. The aroma is actually a bit nicer than expected, thankfully. The flavor is a bit strange, in my opinion. Leaves an odd aftertaste, though not similar to the dreaded Corona aftertaste. This is an alright Mexican, though others are preferable (Pacifico and Negra Modelo, to be specific).

Blah. Corny. More or less indistinguishable from other bad Mexican beers.

For some reason I don't seem to like any Mexican beer and this one is no exception.

rauchbier (3616) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2003
Bottled. Straw gold, poor head, low condition. Slight peppery start to the nose but then the solvent takes hold and ruins it. The soft finish long outstays its welcome.

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Quite good Mexican brew. Very thirst quenching. Not a lot of hops, but has flavor where others lack. Put the lime in the bottle and enjoy.

Better than many other mexican lagers and did a fine job of washing down my chimichanga.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Bottled. Very clear, light body, almost no head. Nearly non-existent corn nose. Sweet, refreshing flavor, some hops present surprisingly, and more body than the appearance would have suggested. Not bad, not good, not Corona thank God.
