1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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)

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
