Bottle - fair size foamy head, light gold color, sweet corn aroma and flavor, pretty typical Mexican beer but certainly not bad by any means ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Among Mexican beers, Carta Blanca is the only one I liked the most so far. It has more taste, more aroma, malty and a bit alcoholic.

Radek Kliber (6681) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: frontal sweet raspberry hints. Overly sweet and fruity to be labeled as pale lager.
Apperance: clear golden with medium bright top. Average life span. No lace, rings.
Taste/Palate etc. thin, very thin. Watery wash out with slight grainy character. Not as sweet as aroma gave. Mineral watery backing. Plain is understatement.

ttoadee (973) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Clear gold, no head. Grain in the nose. Slightly sweet. Middle is soft grain. Finish shows a little hop bitterness. Refreshing, but not much else.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Notes of corn, biscuit, pils yeast and stale malt. Light German hop presence. Not the worst.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2013
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

bb (7510) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
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.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
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.

vikingguy (926) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2013
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

Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 7, 2013
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.
