Ingredients: Water; Two-row Barley; Chinook, Mt. Hood Hops; Yeast.
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.

it is light, tasty going down, chrisp and has a very clean finish. it is the best mass produced beer Mexico has. I’m not comparing this with anything but mainstream. corona, Pacifico Dos x etc. It’s a really good beer for what it is. I’m very fortunate as our local brew master has out of this world beer in Rancho Mirage, ca my bros a rock star chief and makes some of my favorite stuff and we have the hanger brewery in Redlands a short drive away as stone brew as well etc. so again for the group it’s in its a must try. my go to beer since my high school days was Pacifico, new castle and Pabst.

degbert (1268) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can. Pours gold with a high, lacy white head. Nose is apple, stone fruit, and bread; no adjunct or skunk present. Sweet and a little malic on the tongue, but by Bes there’s a few hops there, and the finish is clean and yeasty. Pretty decent yellow fizzy stuff.

Campy877 (179) - Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium thick white head. Scent is heaven grain, typical of Mexican non-amber "cerveza". Think Corunna in flavor but with just a tad more hop bite. Passable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maddmatt639 (311) - Pacifica, California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
No retention and no lacing. Smells of very sweet malt. Almost like chocolate. Tastes like very sweet malt. Not the most pleasant taste. Not offensive, but not enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2505) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle from Liquor Mountain. Pretty stinky aroma (skunked?), pissy hops. Clear medium straw color. Rasty, rough grain initial / some bad hopping / light extract-like notes / little carbonated punches of sweet malt in final. Thin body/ Overall, fairly unpleasant. Might drink it on a sunny day in Baja with some tamales.

kevnic2008 (8987) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a clear, pale yellow beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt. The flavor is malt, sweetness. The palate is weak and the overall impression is weak.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2671) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle 198 yen from Liquor Mountain. 5% a clear glass bottle leads to a slightly skunky (lightstruck) aroma on opening. A clear gold pour with a foamy white head. The skunky aroma persists. The flavor is sweet sugary & hay/grass/corn/basically grains. A hint of bitterness from the hops but the aftertaste is sweet & sugary. It leaves my mouth feeling coated in sugar, the kind of feeling I get after drinking coca-cola... Blurgh...

Pyobon (1019) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2013
(Bottle - ABV 4.4% Superior Mexican Beer, rather than Original on label - maybe export variant). Clear orangey golden with little white head. Subtle aroma of somewhat grainy malt. Light to medium body with pleasant medium carbonation. Taste of light grainy malt with a citrusy tang. Overall, it’s drinkable.

New Beer Distributors, NY 11.2oz ($2.25): Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is corn. Taste is the same. Really sweet. Tastes like macro brew. I’ve had worse.
