This stuff is typically overrated by a bunch of people who went to Cancun or Mazatlan and spent their time completely drunk from dawn to dusk. It does look like a real beer, aroma is not too bad, but nothing special about the flavor. Something about the feel to the mouth seems off to me. If I have to drink a Mexican beer, I’ll take Modelo over this stuff.

Ce n’est pas une bière. ça ressemble plutôt à un (mauvais) soda. A éviter.

This it not a beer. This is a drink for children, with some alcohol in it. Pure merchandising and marketing. Totally not innovating beer.

Barwa bardzo jasna, piana prawie żadna. W smaku nieco kukurydziane. Piwo praktycznie jałowe, szkoda pić.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2014 330ml bottle from Tesco supermarket. Pale gold colour with no head, as drunk from the bottle. The beer has very little aroma, and not much flavour, there is some corn, and and sweetness. May be should have served it with a wedge of lime.

Mexico’s best known and most exported standard pale lager. Often drunk directly from the iconic bottle with a slice of lime in the neck. I pour it into a lager glass without lime. Very thin, loose, off-white, quickly dissolving head leaving a rim around the edge of the glass. Colour very, very pale yellow with a faint greenish hue, cristal clear with low sparkling (which explains the lack of head). Very weak aroma - I’m beginning to see why the slice of lime is used - with primarily sweetish corn, some vague Pilsener malts, some iron and a faint hint of lightstruck hops - yet too faint to even be bothered by it. Taste of faint sweetish corn again, little bit metallic but otherwise very bland and watery, utterly neutral with a weak grassy hop presence in the finish, very late and brief and not nearly enough to create even a form of real bitterness. Almost like any bland standard pale lager diluted with medium-sparkling mineral water... One of the most tasteless beers I ever had, so tasteless it doesn’t even offend me. Just a waste of time.

Free coupon on SWA flight. Pale yellow, very small fizzy white head. A little wine in the aroma. Light, fizzy feel.

An excellent summer beverage, especially if served ice cold with a lime in. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very mild, weak, and slightly sweet beer. There is no reason to ever drink this beer, as there are better beers for the same cost at the same style of beer.
