3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated 3/16/13. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a lighter straw color with a good bit of translucence to its body. The head is a two finger white shade. Bubbly as can be, it fades away quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing on the glass, either.
S: Grains and light maltiness, about what I expect from a Mexican lager. Oh, and some noble hops. Gee, imagine that, noble hops in a lager! Whodathunkit? I also notice some tart lemon/lime qualities.
T: The lime tone in the aroma moves down to the tongue, supporting a sweet malt base and faint yet zesty hop bite. Adjunct notes are thankfully kept in check. Simple as can be, but it just works so well with what it has.
M: Light and crisp. Carbonation isn’t overbearing, and it’s superbly drinkable.
O: This isn’t just good for a Mexican lager - it’s a legitimately good beer, period. Merely drinking this makes me think about 78F sunny days laying on the patio without a care in the world. This beer has just given me A) a go-to in Mexican restaurants, B) something to buy for non-beer-drinking guests when hosting a party, and C) something to actually enjoy besides margaritas should I ever end up vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cafe Azteca, Lawrence MA. Appearance is clear light brown with small head and mild sparkle. Aroma is mild bready malts. Taste is as nose--straightforward pleasant mild malty sweetness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and average to lively carbonation. Overall, not bad in the context of mild beers you would have at a Mexican restaurant. On par with Dos Equis Amber and slightly below Negra Modelo but above others.

I like this brew on hot Mexican day fishing. Clear orange great carbonation. Pretty malty for light Mexican brew. Really flavorful for a light Mexican lager as well.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ah Mexico. Home of the taco, burrito and Bohemia clasica. A fine golden pilsner. You don’t even need to jam the lime down the bottles throat to drink this stuff, it tastes pretty good! It also tastes good with the lime though, so just be prepared for a treat either way you drink it.

(Flasche) Es hat eine goldgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, mit Honig und Getreide. Der Geschmack ist dünn, etwas getreidig, etwas bitter mit viel Kohlensäure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ambar con claridad, buena espuma y adherencia. Lúpulo cítrico y malta en aroma en balance. Tibieza alcohólica, balance en boca al lúpulo sin ser amargo invasivo ni astringente, buena carbonatación, con cuerpo. Final lupulado, de las mejores cervezas mexicanas industriales y buena representante del estilo Pale Lager.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This Mexican beer is sold in a small plump bottle which I actually think is a nice shape, nice label and a dainty gold collar.
Unfortunately foaming is not available and the smell is very limited, smells only of little citrus and hops. The taste is initially marked by citrus and in the beginning it taste really quite good. Later, the taste is a little watery with hop flavor. It has virtually no fullness and no special traits. I can not think of anything as it could be recommended for. Boring, boring, boring. Unfortunately!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Very sweet and hoppy aroma. Yellow color with some light brown tinge possibly due to malt. Not enough hops but the sweetness is not overpowering, probably since it’s not super strong.
Slightly better than the other beers by Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma. Better than Corona but then again that is Corona. Worse than Modela Negro.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 12 oz fancy botlle.
Not fancy beer. Instead, what we have here is a below average pilsner style beer with mild aroma and flavor.
Certainly more interesting and flavorful than, say, Corona Light, but the blend of earthy hops, light malts (and corn?), is not the best combo.
Medium-light body with medium carbonation.
