12 oz bottle Pourers shell with a white head. Aroma is light malt grain and a little bit of bread. Taste is the malt, just a hint of bitter hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Something to wet my whistle while waiting for Mexican takeout. Refreshing after a walk but otherwise, it is what it is: crisp, "German Pilsner" lacking in any real character, or depth. Given the alternatives in this category it at least doesn't require a lime!

How come all these shitty beers have Heineken at the end of their name? Oh, wait, I know. Cus’ Heineken makes it’s money off of marketing cheap shitty beers. Here’s one more.

rjplumer (464) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Mild rye-like floral aroma with a hint of a malt background. Pale amber color with a minimal head. Mild mannered caramel malt flavor with a rye-like tingle on taste buds which surprised me. More body than expected. Wet clean finish without anything negative. Lot more character than most big named pale lager I’ve tried. Better than that other Mexican beer that you need a lime for.

ajnepple (2553) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle from Brooks Place Tavern into a pint glass. Gold and clear appearance with a mostly diminishing white head. Light malty, floral, herbal and fruity aroma. Similar flavor, lightly malty sweetness with just a touch of hop bitterness. Light body with a crisp feel. Easy to drink and better than expected.

High_in_NM (7) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - NOV 8, 2014 does not count
4.7% ABV, bottle. Well balanced mild Pilsner, more bready and earthy, less grassy. Slightly oily and creamy texture. Not bad at all, but nothing terribly special either.

high_on_hops (673) - Burlingame, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a light gold with a white head. It has a light aroma of malt and bread, with a flavor of malt and light fruit with a mostly crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3493) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear golden color with a fairly large white head. The aroma is pretty interesting for a pale lager. A little dusty and malty with hints of yeast and corn. Light earthy, floral spicy hops hidden in the background. Definitely more malt aroma than most Pale Lagers. The flavor is pretty decent with a slick pale malt and corn profile and low amounts of spicy hops that come through a little stronger in the finish. The body is much fuller than expected. If you look for it, you can pick up some slight vegetable DMS and a little metal near the finish, but overall, this is a decent drinker.

Tca21 (51) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Appearance: it has a clear golden color with medium head. Aroma: smells like grass and it has citrus notes. Tastes same as aroma. Watery, but definitely the best Mexican lager.

"definitely less offensive than some of the other mexican lagers (ie-corona) but still nothing good enough to drink if there is real beer around. drinkable on a hot summer day."
