2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours a 1" white head that recedes quickly with some mild lacing. Color is a clear light gold with plenty of carbonation present.
Aroma: mild aroma of lightly toasted barley and some corn sweetness.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp, slightly papery with a dry finish.
Flavor: corn and sweet barley dominate the flavor, maybe a hint of hop spice in the finish.
Overall: a pleasant, drinkable light lager that pairs well with spicy Mexican food.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a Quart bottle poured in a glass. Clear urine appearance. Flavor is crisp and watery. Light grain malt. At least it’s not disgusting and doesn’t have any weird adjunct or metallic flavors like a lot of cheap beer. Acceptable lawnmower beer, but there’s better ones out there for the money.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yet another light Mexican lager. Pours dark yellow with a head that evaporates rather quickly. Light on the mouth. Tastes has a hint of grain and toast, some sweetness, and a hint of hops in the finish. Malt and a hint of fruit in the nose.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
In my opinion Mexico brews the best beer in the world. This is an excellent example of a great pilsner.

This beer is flat, watery, metallic. It sucks. That’s really what it comes down to.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - fair size foamy head, light gold color, sweet corn aroma and flavor, pretty typical Mexican beer but certainly not bad by any means

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.
