In my opinion Mexico brews the best beer in the world. This is an excellent example of a great pilsner.

Had two cold bottles of this at a border town across from Big Bend National park along with a big plate of tacos. In January the temperature was in the 80s and the first drink was heavenly. The rest was pretty good. It might have had a head, but it was inside the bottle and didn’t last very long because I drank it, too. I was too busy wrapping my lips around the bottle to stick my nose in it to give it a smell but I do recall smelling beer so it gets a 7.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 I found this beer quite robust and flavorful. Full character and tasted like beer should.

This beer tasted good, but not as good as Bohemia. Bought this at Friar Tuck in a make your own six pack. I’d have it again.

Carta Blanca has a medium, white head, and a clear golden color. Barley is the only smell that I could pick up in this beer’s faint aroma. The taste is mild, and again, barley is the main, if not only, feature here. There is a slight hop presence in the background, but it seems appropriate for this product. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Carta Blanca has a refreshing finish. It is not as dry as American lagers. Although mild, for sure, the beer is not bland. I liked this and would certainly like to enjoy another one. RJT

The best Mexican beer ever. It's a little better than Dos Equis. Very crisp taste (common for a Mexican lager).

After a poor pour leaving a head the texture of old bath water, I was surprised at the intense grainy aroma and full bodied flavor of this beer. At 6 percent alcohol, this is quite strongly hopped and has the pleasant zingy bitter qualities often found in lighter beers around 3.5 or 4 percent. It also has a pleasant, grainy-citrus aftertaste. This is the kind of beer that would taste good down to the last of a 6-pack; I got mine in a quart bottle at $2.59 which is quite a bargain in my opinion.
