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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall a pretty good Mexican brew. Crisp golden color, nice white head (even some lace left in the glass), refreshing taste (even some mid-palate action), lip-smacking finish. I don’t usually go on about south of the border beer, but this is one of my favorites.

Light, but pleasing.
Aroma is nothing special. Deep amber in color. Flavor has a bit of nuttiness, with a smooth, but not long-lasting finish. Better than most brews which originate from south of the border...and it makes a nice compliment to a plate full of tacos.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of my favorite Mexican brews. This is a medium-bodied lager with a dark yellow, almost honey color. This is a finely balanced beer. The beer has a light amount of carbonation and has a good head.

Skunky beer! very nasty, one of the few beers I never finished because of taste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smelled and tasted just a little bit skunky. Fairly clean taste, not much flavor. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s drinkable - but it lacks character.

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.
