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.

De la macro cervecera Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma propiedad de Heineken México esta American Standard Lager o American Pale Lager de nombre “Carta Blanca” con 4.5% ABV. Una cerveza que en apariencia muestra una corona de espuma delgada, perlas pequeñas, baja retención y carbonatación media, color pajizo dentro de lo mas bajo en la escala del SRM, muy cristalina, prácticamente sin cuerpo ya que no deja marca en el cristal y tiene aspecto acuoso. El aroma es tímido, no refleja mucho carácter, es principalmente dulce, se perciben granos de cereal, quizás algo de maíz y es lo único que puedo detectar. El sabor es mas acercado a una Lager Light, apenas y propone dulzor, muy aguada, no hay amargor por lo tanto el lúpulo apenas esta presente, final efímero y un poco dulce, tenia bastante de no probar esta cerveza y la recordaba con mas carácter.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Cerveza color amarillo/dorado donde se observa moderada carbonatación y corona de espuma color blanco, de mediana retención y burbujas compactas. En el aroma destaca el dulzor de las maltas, también predomina el maíz como adjunto. En paladar nuevamente domina el dulzor de las maltas y las notas de maíz que puede llegar a empalagar. El retrogusto queda un amargor ligero, seco y no astringente. Cuerpo cuerpo, media a alta carbonatación. RESUMEN: Cerveza donde predominan los adjuntos.

As bad as you think it will be. Made slightly better with the addition of lime.

Pour is a clear still blonde, tiny head that leaves a little lacing. Smell is corny and salty, kinda smells like the ocean? Taste is like the ocean too, salt, funky, bitter, and weird salty after taste

Originally rated on 7/12/08. Standard mexican beer, in fact a little below average. Pours a decent looking yellow body with a thin white head and little carbonation. Aroma was of old corn mash. flavor was similar but also had a metallic twinge to it. not worth $8 bucks a sixer.

1/16/16 Chicago (32 oz. Bottle poured into standard pint glass). Golden pour, minimal white head and carbonation. Faint aroma of malt. Extremely light taste and texture, very smooth going down, like water. Corn and a hint of malt. Decent beer for those enjoying a lighter beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale gold color with a disappearing white head. Grainy metallic aroma. Insipid sweet corn flavor leaves much to be desired. Quite honestly one of the worst beers ever.

Was pretty underwhelming for a Mexican lager but then again most of them are. Perhaps I got a bad bottle. Purchased from Friar Tuck Beverage as part of a "create your own six pack" set. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Made from the finest barely and hops fed to Mexico’s best horse barn. 32oz bottle in Seattle. Thin, little head. Tastes of corn and bad decisions. Yuck.

Bottle. Pale yellow color with a thin white head. No aroma of note. Sweet corn flavor.
