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.

Clear light blond beer, creamy white head, unstable, non adhesive, some small sediment floating around in the glass. Aroma: some citrus, grains, bit grassy, very faint in all. MF: soft carbon, light body. Taste: pretty sweet, corn syrup, citrus. Aftertaste: bitter hops, if only a little, grains, sweet, corn syrup. A pretty plain and boring lager, which is a waste of your alcohol calories.

Classic pee-yellow pale laga appearance. Head sort of surprised me - pretty large and fluffy. Aroma of almost nothing except some vaguely sweet popcorn malts. Watery, weak flavors of the same; fades within a few seconds. Some metallic crap at the end. Better than Bud, I guess, but still not much here. Heck, Tecate is much better than this. I do not know why Tecate is rated lower overall. I did not drink this whole thing. I am glad I got only one bottle.
