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.

"Meh. Good enough with food and clearly cleaner and better than a standard Corona, but still nothing I’d really enjoy past the refreshment phase. Non-offensive is the key :)"

Bottle: Clear gold with a thick white head. Skunky, grainy..(clear bottle) aroma. Citrus, stale grain, corn malt flavour...sweet. Aside from the terrible aroma, it might not be a too bad a beach beer when fresh and served locally.... However, in this case....gaaahhh.

There’s no doubt that the sweet, overrioe danky dunk malt aroma of this beer means that it is made with the rinest ingridients. It pours golden with a lot of magically disappearing foam but who cares about that? It tastes like 5th grade before your friend’s dad switched to lite beer.

6 pack cans from local grocery store. Slight hoppy citrus aroma. Crystal clear golden in color with a thin head. Definitely a sweet malty cereal flavor followed by a dry citrus note. Overall, what can you say? Smooth & easy drinking; at least it’s not offensive. A good summer quencher.

The beer starts smooth and watery. No real aroma there. The mainpart is a bit dry, a bit malty. Hints of hop bitterness in the end, the rest is slightly grainy (if there is any aroma above the water level). Water, lots of water. I don’t know where the mentioned hops are, but I guess not in my bottle.
Watery, refreshing stuff. No aroma at all. --> 4/12/4/4

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.

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 (188) - 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

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
