Our original formula. This brew is bright, deep golden yellow in color. The aroma is of sweet malt, lightly floral and hoppy. The flavor reflects its hop bitterness; slightly sweet, and just a perfect balance of two row barley malt, Chinook, Mt. Hood, and peerless hops that culminate to a very clean and semi-dry finish.

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Light lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is grain, herbal hops, and slight diacetyl. Flavor is a nice mix of sweet grain malt and lightly spiced hops. Medium body. This beer was a pleasant suprise. Worth a try.

Bottles-6.99 a sixer. First time. Taste is rich, hoppy and coats your mouth. For Mexican Pale Lager this might be the cream of the crop. It might replace my daily drinker of Modelo Especial in cans if I can find Mexicali cheap enough. Aroma almost nonexistent with familiar chemical and corn waft. But taste aspires to be a cut above Dos XX but cannot due to excess sweetness instead a true clean pale lager finish. Not bad. Says "since 1923" in tagline but I never heard of it. With a little tweaking by the manufacturer (Cerveceria Mexicana Molson-Coors?) this could be something special. Very refreshing, surprisingly tasty--but it’ll wear on you. The malt seems to give way, or compete with, the chemical brew with both making alternating appearances and that’s a little unseetling. If you are a Mexican beer nut like me, it’s worth a sixpack.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 12 oz clear bottle with a twist cap.
Born on date stamped on the neck ala Bud.

Pretty nondeScript aroma. A little malty a little corn.

Flavor is slightly sweet with a mild bitter bite.

It was not as bad as I thought it would be. Drinkable lawnmower beer.

Nice alternative to the usual south-of-the border suspects. Certainly Mexican, in a good way. Twist cap! Deeper in color than Corona and Pacifico. Nice bit of skunkyness on the nose. Medium head, drinks easy and very refreshing. A buck cheaper than Corona and I liked it better.

Pours bright pale yellow w/ a shortlived spritzy froth. Aroma is a tad skunky. Light necter w/ ample residual effers. A simple malty brew w/ a peristant mild bittering. The finish is quick w/ a lingering maltiness. Crisp and refreshing w/ no off flavors.

Better than I thought it would be. Available in Tijuana, just across the border. I compared it directly with Dos Equis and Bohemia. Hoppier and more buscuity than Dos X. Aroma and appearance are a bit weak, but the beer has more character than I’d expected.

A really nice beer. Malt aroma, smooth and great flavor, nice appearance. No lemon is neccesary to drink this great beer. Try it with fish tacos, carne asada or shrimp coctel and ceviche...as more cold as much great taste..

Wow, i cant believe some people prefer Tecate and Dos Equis over this. I am from the region and i cant stand Mexican Beer, but of all of the Pale Lagers this is pretty much one of the best ones weve got. Its true it has a funky skunky aroma to it, but a nice golden rich appearance and althogh a medium crisp head (but better than none like the others). The flavor has some wheat, corn with some sour malt mixed into it. Goes down pretty smooth. I recommend having it ice cold with some fish tacos or carnitas (NO LIME) and get it fresh in Mexico not in the US. I had some in San Diego once, it was a completly diffrent beer, tasted old and stale... skunky even. Overall i like it as one of the best pale lagers in Mexico. (not much competition though)

Pours a mellow golden yellow color. Aromas of grains, light hops, and a funky musty smell. Flavor is bland with a weird funk, add a lime to it to kill the funky taste and it is almost drinkable. Why drink this when you can get Pacifico, Modelo, Tecate, or Dos Equis.
