Draft at El Cholo Los Angeles, consumed 02/21/08. Medium amber color with almost no head. Active though modest carbonation throughout. Aromas: sweet grain, some metallic tang. Flavor is sweet light malt with a tiny bit of citrus tang, followed by a lightly bitter finish. Crisp, easy to drink. You could do a lot worse.

Yeah I have not had this is well over a decade... I could wait a few more years. It is malty, has a slight metallic and corn-y note with a fragrant herbal backing. It is what it is.

Only slightly better than its brother the light lager, only difference is the Amber color with some extra malts, but no much malts to speak of and no hops.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Distant hop nose. Bright copper beer with foamy white head. Light carbonation. Mineral water spritz in the mouth. Finish is short with notes of cardboard & bubblegum. Tiny sour touch right at the end. Refreshing, palatable.

AleRider78 (249) - - AUG 31, 2015
Poured a dark amber colour with an off-white/brownish colour. Aromas are of caramel, hops, and spices, although hops are well blended. Has a bit of a roasted malt/caramel flavour to it. Not too bad for a mass produced import.

MohaBeer (73) - Lima, PERU - AUG 18, 2015
Ambar intenso y transparente, espuma moderada a baja. Aroma malta maltoso moderado a alto, lúpulo cítrico-herbal bajo. Tibieza alcohólica, balance a malta maltoso, con final seco y amargor moderado de lúpulo propio. Buena carbonatación, con cuerpo pleno, muy buena cerveza industrial estilo Vienna.

jrodooo5 (1299) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Not horrible & actually almost decent on a warm summer’s night. Thin copper pour w/ a white head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is bready & malty but not off putting. The taste has a little bit of body & character. There’s a slight sweetness & not completely watered down Mexican crap. You could do worse!

Bottle. Malty, bit of caramel, some grassy hops. Light and crisp, well somewhat. Drinkable.
