Mexico’s famous Rio Bravo lager brewed only with water, two row barley malt, hops and yeast.

ALLOVATE (2408) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2013
Yellow gold with soda-pop carbonation and grossly lacking in the head department. Rice pudding, apple pulp and creamed corn nose with a subtle manky fruit peel note. Similar in taste. Very starchy with fruit esters that have run amok of what I’d imagine their goal ’beer’ was. Featherweight body with a sprightly effervescence. Dry, crisp and short in the finish (Thanks!!). Soapy lather upon the tongue seems harmful. No hops, a fleeting touch of sun-drenched grain seems a hidden reward for drinking, Nothing to like here. Can’t say the heat of Mexico would call for beers of such low-strung calibre. I just couldn’t continue. BAD! (12fl.Oz can, BB 07/05/14, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

12oz bottle in a footed pilsener. Pours light golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and light hops. Flavor the same, with a little tin in the finish. Average to light texture. Not bad but not great.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
The colour of this can is bronze, head is white. Plenty of malts on the nose, biscuits and light fruits as well. I like the flavour, it has a strong malt base and a good tantalizing finish were the hops come out, pretty good this one.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours light golden with a thin off-white head. Notes of sweet pale malt, biscuit, and light herbs. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2012
Bottle. Slightly sweet barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Slightly sweet barley malt and light hint of herbal hops. No bad flavors - a decent enough beer, just not much there.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle: Clean gold color with a sturdy white head. Solid toasty flavor with a light crisp bitterness and limey freshness. Nice clean finish, full flavored mouthfeel. Tasty!

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 22, 2011
Surprise, surprise. Not another awful mexican lager. I would had bet it was going to be disgusting. BUt it has very nice features: color, yeast, hops’ aroma. Very nice aftertaste and awesome shape.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Pale straw colored, as you’d expect. Initially poofy topped, this is somewhat musty with a lemon twist. Creamy mouthfeel. (#4093, 3/19/2011)

IndianaRed (2436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Brewforia Beer Market, Meridian, ID The anticipation is killing me, it’s been a long time since I rated a Mexican Lager. Hazy dark yellow pour with a fleeting white head, that quickly settles into a patchy skin covering about 2/3 of the surface. Sweet apple and corn aroma. More sweet weak vegetal flavors and barely enough fizz to call itself carbonated. I suppose this would wash down a few spicy enchiladas at a dive Tex-Mex resturaunt, but that is all.

monkeychugg55 (873) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Clear yellow-gold body with a few bubbles and a 3/4" white head that settles to a film rather quickly. Little lacing. The aroma is sweet and grainy, with a small amount of grassiness. The flavor is sweet also, with a bit of hops on the finish and a weird but inoffensive taste I can’t really describe. Bigger mouthfeel than you would expect, with prickly carbonation. Not bad, would be refreshing on a hot day.
