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.

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.

My pops told me i could go grab a 6 pack of beer from his store’s crappy selection, so i choose this because it was the only beer i hadn’t drank yet. Was i regretting it after my fourth bottle. Yuckkk, it’s worser than Sol or Corona. Actually maybe it’s not because it doesn’t even try to be something it just is little malt/ hops, yeast and whole lot of water. I should of just drank water or maybe got a free 6 pack of Sam Adams

(Bottle) Pours a clear yellow with a descent sized white head. Kind of a skunky flavor. Corn and malt aroma....

Pours gold with a light white head that is lasting quite some time. Lace is fair. Some lemony hops, a slight wet malt or corn aroma. Hmm. Sour hops, slightly old or stale. There is a distinct flavor of corn and sour malts. Not so great. Looked ok, but then I had to go and try it.

This is a terrible Mexican beer. No substance whatsoever. Lots of adjuncts present here, lots of hay and grass, with some wet cardboard as well. Damp, watery malt.

Looks nice, decent head, although I drank the second one from a bottle with a slice of lime, hoping that would help the overall experience. Sweet up front, but not from malt. Rather bland finish, little or no hops. "Felt" a little heavier than Corona. Unique bottle, for that’s worth.

this is probably one of the worst mexican beers I have had the opportunity to try, and I've had many. Bright yellow.. adjuncty, old oatmeal and almost pukish aroma..Big adjuncty flavors overwelm the rest of the beer..so that drank neat, its quite gross. Even with a squirt of lime, the harsh adjunctiness makes it less than enjoyable.

I really don't like Mexican beer, but if I had to choose this and Modelo Negro would be my favorites. It's slightly darker than most mexican piss beers. But it's still watery and nasty. It's ok if you are baking in the parking lot and trying to get wasted at a Jimmy Buffett concert.
