from a 32 oz bottle. i really have no problem withthis typical mexican lager. consider the source and where it is meant to be quaffed. it is a more than passable hot weather lager. beats the south and central american entries. I can taste barley malt over corn and hop flavor is noticeable. it is also a bargain. maybe not world class, but it puts a whoopin’ on corona. i would definately drink this in mexico. it doesn’t try to predend to be anything other than what it is.

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.

hfmejias (745) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUL 11, 2014
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.

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
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.
