No head, actually looks like my piss, and smells like Mexican tap water. The only thing nice I can say about this beer is it is better than Corona(if that’s a compliment.)

One of the better, thicker Mexican beers. This is the one to order at authentic Mexican restaurants with a nice plate of enchiladas!

Hey Sean, I have an international brew in the beer fridge! Really? Pour it for me ... hmm - looks like a macro, not much of a nose - you sure this is international? Yup - taste it! Well, there was a little hop leaf used at some point and it’s not so grainy or adjuncty you can’t enjoy it with food. A fair beer if someone else buys.

It is one of the more richer, ’thicker’ Mexican beers- and more flavorful than most.

a good all around beer.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Sure, it’s flimsy and unattractive, but it’s one of the best mainstream Mexican brews there is...interesting nose and nicely balanced.

O.K. lager with short taste.

Probably somewhere on the upper end of the Mexican beers. But a car accident is on the upper end of ways Id prefer dying. This is not very good beer. I always heard it was the best Mex, but I still go XX Amber over this. Nothing distinctive about it. I hate going to chinese and Mexican restaurants because I am usually forced to drink something that tastes very similar to this crap.

For my money, the best Mexican pilsener. Hoppy, malty, good palate. Bottle has good feel. Don’t waste money on Corona, get a Bohemia.
