Okay, this is a beer that I will have at one of my mexican hangouts. While I usually opt for Negro, this is the one I will pick over Corona. It arrives as a light copper color with a good head. It’s hard to judge a lace as it was served quite cold. A nice hops taste when compared to other mexican beers of this style. Light taste, but indicative of style. I would order this over Corona if you don’t want a Negro style.

I barely remember the first time I had one, I do remember spilling this on a hot girl in Matamoras, Mexico and her letting me lick it off her arm! So naturally when I got back home I tried another and have always had fond memories.

Typical Mexican beer flavor but a little better than most. Nothing exciting enough to buy on a regular basis... needs lemon, probably because the water used for brewing doesn’t taste so great.

Not a big fan of Mexican beers as they tend to have a weak flavor and body, but this was suprisingly flavorful not great but stood well enough that it didn’t need a lemon or lime to give it.

Best of the Mexican brews in my book. Nice dark color and refreshing in an iced mug accompanied by a mound of chips and salsa. Taste is a bit watery but overall a must have with your Mexican food fix.

The first couple of sips aren’t too bad, if it’s served ice-cold. Not really much of a head; dull taste.

One of the top mexican beers. Smooth flavor with a medium body. Not much aftertaste, but well balanced overall and worth a try.

Better than the really vile American mass-market beers, but not by much.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 I wouldn't buy this normally, but it is one of the palatable Mexican beers. Fuller body than what you might expect.
