COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, refreshing, light-bodied malt-flavored beer with a well-balanced finish. A Lager that drinks like a Pilsner. A liquid embodiment of living life to the fullest. A beverage made from pure spring water and the choicest hops. A beer with such good taste, it’s chosen you to drink it.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 Golden yellow. No head. Smells sweet and tangy. A little saltiness while sweet. Tastes like bad mineral water as well. Better than most other Mexican beers I have tried. Luckily this one wasn't skunked.

Whenever I go out for Mexican food, they only seem to ever have Dos Equis and Corona. I'll take Dos Equis over Corona, but not by much. Puts out a jalapeno fire quite well, but so does a glass of water. No head, no depth, and only a hint of flavor. Smells horrid, though, worse than Corona.

Why does Mexican beer taste so much better in Mexico? Maybe its the heat. Almost no head but a light skiff around the edge and light lacing. Thin looking gold colour. Faint grassy hop aroma. Thin watery beer with a ghost of a hop taste that disappears as fast as ice on a hot day.

Decent Beer. I had heard very good things about XX but I came away somewhat disappointed. It's not offensive and with a lime it's actually pretty good. but I expected better

Green bottles are almost always bad, so just imagine mexican piss water in a green bottle. That's what you've got with this swill. Nasty watered down skunked swill.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Straw color with a pitiful head and exactly 3 streams of carbonation. Flattened out like apple juice. Pungent skunky aroma and some corny malt smell. Dilute flavor. This beer compliments spicy Mexican food well because it's cold, alcoholic, fizzy, and unobtrusive. Mexico is a great country, but beer is clearly not their forte. This is better than most Mexican beers.

unremarkable Mexican lager. Skunky lager aroma. Pours a pale yellow, almost flat. Not much going for it taste wise. Better than Corona, but unless you're in Mexico, why drink it at all?

This was horrific. Corn and adjcunts aplenty, watery mouthfeel, Typical Mexican yellow as piss lager. Had this watching the footy (Sydney v Brisbane) with Linc, motelpogo and betty. Thanks gos to motelpogo (or was it betty?) for allowing me to try one of Mexicos finest.
