3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 I had this at a mexican restaurant on tap. I thought it was pretty good. There was no head at all when it was brought to me, so I can't say how fast it dissapated. The flavor was quite enjoyable and went well with my king size plate of mexican food.
Knock of points on the bottled. Dissappointed in that. Seemed a bit watery.

The first time I tried this it was really bitter. The second time wasn't much better. I usually like dark beers but this is the exception to the rule.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2006 Dark amber colour with a mostly diminishing frothy off-white head. Lihgt caramel aroma plus corn and fusel adjunct notes. Flavours mirror the aroma. Light bodied, thin and dry. Perhaps a hint of a real dark lager in there, but the adjuncts are too noticable to let it out.

Looks better than it tastes. Watered down version of a real amber. That's the only real comment I've got. Just rambling to meet the minimum comment length requirement.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Had it on tap. Best thing about it is the nice amber color. Mild flavor of hops, but not much taste at all. Seemed very thin. A lime might have made it better.

Could be a lot worse. Could be Corona. One of the better Mexicans I've tried, but then I haven't tried many. Still didn't care for it much.

Copper color. OK head. Mild malt flavor. An ok beer for Tex-Mex is they don't have Negra Modelo.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
OK but there are much better Mexican beers. Light copper coloring with a light aroma. At least they didn't push a lime with this one.

Never really liked this one, and there are many better mexicans out there, including the original XX.

Not great, but much better than a Corona. Clear copper color with an ok head. Light malty aroma that equalled the flavor. Kind of watery.
