This beer is yellow like the rest of the mexican beers, except for M Negro. It doesn't taste much different than Corona.

(Bottle) Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. This beer must be icy cold to be drinkable. Typical overall to most Mexican brews.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 Pours with a light yellow body and a thin white head. The aroma is light grass along with some faint flowery hops. The taste is light with some interesting bite of grass. The body is thin and light. Pretty good for the style.

I forgot I had this in Brissy. This sux arse and I really felt like a beer too with temp at about 40C. It's suprising how highly most Americans are rating this below...

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
