3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.
