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..

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.

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.

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.

Had with Dan at London grill. Pour is a clear bodied golden rob with bright white head. Aroma is typical of anpale lcger. Yeast and such. Flavor is distance d smooth with typical malts, yeast, and slight wheaty aftertaste.

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.

Strange cramy and a little sandy alike in the body. Nice diffrent taste. But not so much quality.

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.
