UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: I quite like this. Served with a good hot curry, it really comes alive. One of the best beers for a hot chili course

One of the better crap beers to come out of Mexico. Not horrible but doesn’t offer much in body or taste. It is similar to Negro Modelo, but seems to fall a bit short. A good beer to drink while eating, as you don’t have to concentrate on the negatives while you’re washing it down with food. I do have to point out that bluemeow76’s comment on bottle theory does seem to hold true with Mexican beverages - nice call.

Much better in a bottle. Smooth and good with Mexican food.

Not nearly as bad as I was expecting. As far as the Mexican beers I have tried so far, it is not quite as good as Negro Modelo, but is mucho better than Corona, Tecate, etc. Light malt flavor. Aroma is hard to comment on because all I could smell was the lime. All in all I would probably try this again as it went with my enchiladas fairly well.

wow, i can’t believe that i’m going to say this - ’this ain’t horrible’ (and you can quote me on that!). Things didn’t start off well - the pale gold color had me expecting something thin and krappy. the taste - light prickly with a nice medium malt, some middle of the tongue hops, finishes dry.

Golden coloured. Pretty nice maltiness, which is highly suruprising in a Mexican lager. Crisp with rather low bitterness.

Just like its written, A top-quality Mexican lager beer with full body and rich flavor. But nothing to write home about.

Good for a Mexican brew. Light and standard.

Pils, on the hoppier and tastier side of middle-of-the-road. Mexico was once ruled by a Hapsburg, and it shows in their solid Central European brewing.

This beer probably has more character than just about any other mainstream Mexican brew. A bit more upscale in appearance and flavor. Some notes of caramel malt and better than average hops character. Holds a steady head and flavor is balanced and pleasing. Not a bad beer at all but in a world of so many choices it could stand to be a bit more serious.
