A golden refreshing beer which represents the classic Mexican Lager tradition.

Notes of corn, biscuit, pils yeast and stale malt. Light German hop presence. Not the worst.

Bottle, 12oz. A clear, slightly pale golden beer with a small, white head. Some lacings. The aroma is weak, with a little fruity touch and pale malts, and some hints of both yellow and green apples. Rather sweetish flavor with some corn-like hints, apples, a generic fruityness and some malty hints. Maybe a touch of bitterness too. Thin on the palate, feeling quite dry, and a bit too carbonated. Short fruity and corn-sweetish finish. It went down easily at the tex-mex restaurant, but I didn’t feel a need to have another one. 130830

Bottle. Straw beer with a whitish head. Light malt and light mineral aroma. Light malt and light corn flavor. Medium bodied. Light malt and light corn lingers.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of grains and pale malt with minimal skunk at the end. Taste is light bitter. Pretty plain and boring. Meh.

Bottle. Dank corn aroma and taste. Some hard water mineral flavors too. As far as pale Mexican lagers go, just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer seemed to be the one that would take off in the US back in the 70’s, but it didn’t grow much. It is very similar to the other Mexican beers and is lacking in color and taste. It isn’t very special and you would not be bad off missing it.

Pours yellow with quick dissipating white head. No lacing. Nose is slight cereal. Palate is medium light with slight malty sweetness and light bitterness that lingers.

Drank from the bottle. Appreciate it for what it is; an innocuous light Mexican lager. A bit more malt and body than, say, Corona. Otherwise easy drinking, unremarkable, but good on a hot day and with good.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent gold with lively carbonation and fluffy white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes doughy and skunky, but not unpleasantly so. A bit of bitterness too. Average on the palate. An easy drinker that exceeded my expectations.

Bottle. Sweet barley corn aroma. Hazy gold with a small white head. Malt and mild hops flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Overall, actually pleasant, and would make a good lawnmower beer.
