COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
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.

A positive surprise to meet a Mexican lager that tastes like beer. Good hoppy and slightly floral with fullness and taste as a European pilsner can and should taste. I do not remember just where I bought it, but it was cheap. This lager tops everything I’ve tasted from Mexico and can be recommended as a nice, hoppy and rich thirst quencher. Surely also excellent for food, which need not necessarily be Mexican.

N3lson1 (533) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Drank from a nonic glass poured from a 330ml bottle, purchased as part of a random eight pack. Pours a golden, slight orange, hight carbonated, with decent amount of white head. Has malty aromas with a pilsner crispness and slight hops. Tastes refreshing in the begining with an decent middle matliness, which finishes with an odd creamy taste. Better than I expected!

Sdaniel90 (538) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Clear golden with a minimal offwhite head. Grainy aroma of corn, some fruits. Medium to light bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Not sweet with the faintest herbal bitterness. Cereal and carbonation finish. Not undrinkable but practically flavorless.

Percy0103 (297) - MEXICO - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A clear golden beer with a small white foamy head. Aroma is of canned corn, wheat and a faint hint of spices. Taste is very mild with a watery finish. Not the worst macro I have tasted, but one that I have already forgotten.

rondphoto (2938) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber, thin rim head, dots of lace. Taste is sweet malt that may have an adjunct along, turning a little bitter on the swallow. In the finish, carbonation, then some sweet malt bring things to a short finish. A typical hot climate beer: drinks like water and quenches thirst on a hot day.

12oz bottles - I’ve been to several Mexican parties and while many of them drink Corona or Modelo or even Bud, a select few had this on hand and I have to say it was rather enjoyable. Grainy aroma, light herbs, and just a touch buttery. Spicy hops on the palate, just a bit more butteryness, sweet corn and cinnamon (??). Not bad.

12 oz. can served in a shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, one finger head formed but quickly dissolved away within moments, low carbonation. Aroma of hard water and corn. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt has to be corn all the way, middle actually has a very small hop crest, finish is pure water though.

"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 :)"
