1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(drain pour and ticks’ night) pours clear straw with a very small white head, no retention. skunky and corny, lightly sugary pale but faint malts, almost absent hops if not some herbal bland notes.. average carbonation, light body. bad.

A different taste to it. not harsh but almost stale not skunky but stale. Not the worst thing I’ve have ever had but not something that I would buy as a regular pick up. Thanks to my dart buddy Steve for leaving another affordable beer for the tasting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweet with a mild hop bitterness. Easy to drink, but not especially good, even when ice cold.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale lager that is supposed to be in the style of popular drinks like Corona but missing the quality.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a minimal non-lasting white head. aroma of corn, malt and minimal hopping. Excellent imitation of other Mexican lagers but with a more off putting aroma and flavour. somewhat skunky. Poor.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale yellow with a white thin quick disappearing head. Sweet corn, straw and stale hops. Grainy palate, medium carbonation. Yeast straw, watery sugar. Little bit pf paper. But it is easy on the mouth and when cold it is enjoyable. But wouldn’t recommend it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated November 2005. Last of my 4 brews for this Tropical Beerfest night. So this one is the only non-Mexican one. Brewed in Canada by Lakeport as a premium Mexican style. Pours a pale yellow, same as Corona. The white head is creamier and the lacing is better than the other three beers tonight. Decent malt scent, much better smelling than the Sol (which had a barn thing to it). Same watery mouthfeel as the others. Good crisp taste of clean mild malt. Quite refreshing and better than all other Mexican brews, with a higher ABV % as well. Note: The recipe has changed since and now it is one of those cheap corn beers, but back in the day - this was pretty good for the price for those who like those refreshing cervezas.

Canadian industrial swill masquerading as Mexican industrial swill.
The weather has to be really hot, and the beer really cold for this to be enjoyable. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a light yellow with very fizzy head that fizzled out in 30 secs. Aroma is surprisingly good, but there is almost no taste. Mouthfeel is smooth and finishes very clean. This beer needs HOT weather to enjoy.
