Aroma is slightly hoppy. Appearance is medium with a slight head. Taste is lacking any depth but is better than many Mexican beers. Palate is somewhat refreshing.

This simple lager is surprisingly good in a market that has demoted pale lager to Z division beers. Nice golden pour with medium white head. Hoppy aroma and taste is rich and crisp with a full hoppy ending. Nice.

chinchill (3000) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 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.

Rated based on notes taken 21 June 2012 -- This is pretty decent for a darker cerveza.

Gold pour, quick head. Nose is light kilned grain. Middle is more sweet malt, brief hop assertiveness. Finish merges back to sweetish. OK.

Goeiewitte (3) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
Flavor of caramel, sweet malts, some mild hops with hints of bitterness. Malty finish with hints of bitterness in the end.

Pours pale yellowish with almost no head. Aroma is low: honey, corn flakes and lemon. Tasteless, just a bit metallic and watery. Darn close to water.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
Dorada clara, ligeramente turbia y con poca espuma. Aroma malteado. Típica lager sudamericana, algo menos aguada que la media, y con un carácter mas citrico y lupulado cercano a las pilseners. Bastante carbonatada.

Ferris (7691) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle - Light grains and a touch of skunk. Clear gold with a decent white head. Some citrus orange peel notes and a light bitterness. Not bad.

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.

Who knew Mexicans were brewing a Pilsner this good? This pours straw colored with medium carbonation and a thin white head. The nose is equal parts light grassy malt and aroma hops. The body is light and crisp with a refreshing bite of hops on the end. Overall, I doubt the average drinker could distinguish this from Staropramen, it is that similar to the lighter Czech pilsners.
