i’v had Carta Blanca mucho times on various occasions through the years and have usually found it a tasty compliment w/mexican fare and sometimes, one will come across a skunked one or few; nevertheless, and overall, the beer has been good with the food and the friends and it’s usual taste has been invitingly good, consistant and assuring during enduring the hot days. no lime, no lemon, no salt, por favor; just Carta Blanca, please.

Carta Blanca is yellow water. It is so bland it is essentially neutral. There is the slightest hint of grain and a velvety smooth finish. Maybe it pairs well with spicy foods, but it is too thin to be a stand-alone drink.

a just passable pale lager...ok cold and/or with food, otherwise typical pee pee water. There’s worse out there, though.

Had some cans of this in Costa Rica. I think they were 12oz but perhaps 340ml. ANYWAY, nothing too exciting to report. Poured a clear yellow with thin head that disappears quickly. aroma of grass and hay. no hops. taste.... well it’s refreshing in hot weather and nothing more. not offensive and better than Imperial.

Not awful but certainly not good! Pours a hazy gold w/ a big white head. The aroma is bready, malty, & has nearly a weird sour note to it. The taste unfortunately isn’t nearly as complex. It’s pretty clean & uninteresting while being slightly thin on the palate. Pale lager ehh.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, into a pint glass. Not bad for a Mexican lager, easy drinking and pretty smooth. A bit bland. Light bodied. Crushed it.

Yes this is pretty bland and watery with some corn syrup. No head at all, which is pretty woeful. Guess it tastes good frozen on a hot day in Mexico.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden, minimal white head, no lacing. Aroma of grain and barley. Taste is bitter, of grain and straw, very watery. Not great, didn’t like it, if you are looking for a pale lager for a hot summer day there are quite better options out there.

Backlog. Bottle when in Mexico. Clear pale golden, small white fizzy head, recedes quickly; aroma grainy, corn, grass; moderate sweet, bit papery; crisp mouthfeel, watery texture, light body; dry finish.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of corns, grains, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not as bad as I was expecting it to be.
