Bottle. Not much of a taste in this one, but it was quite drinkable. One of the better Mexican beers.

I should have had a lime in it. I could have at least had some flavor then. (bottle)

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2002
Mild hop aroma with slight tang--not offensive, not attractive...Color is standard pale gold with slightly better-than-aveerage white macro head...Hops have decent bittering but no bloom...Slightly sweet malt bottom...Carbonation moderate...Balance acceptable...On the whole, quite drinkable but nothing out of the ordinary...However, it does carry an import price...Much better values out there than this...

This is my most favorite beer that comes south of USA. Maybe even better. This bitter beer is exquisite in showing a great ESB.

Pretty good beer... has what I thought was kind of a "limey" taste. In fact, the bartenders will put a lime in this one unless you ASK them not to, it really doesnt need one. Not that its hard to do, but this beer makes Corona look like ass.
