This beer is what it is. A light, refreshing summer beer. Unlike most Mexican beers, it has absolutely no skunk smell and does not require a lime to make it drinkable. You can crush a case of these on a long lake weekend and wake up feeling human on Sunday morning. It has no funky aftertaste and the carbonation is mild compared to the Buds and Millers of the world, which lowers the chances of "beer reflux" when drinking large quantities. It also pairs well with summer snacks ala salsa, wings, pretzels, etc. The "Most Interesting Man In the World" got it right with this Mexican beer.

Nurmis (306) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2016
355ml bottle, 4.5 abv. Pours golden without head. Mild floral hops, notes of hay malts. Reminds me a little bit of Czech Pilsners.

Pours a very clear straw color. About half finger white head. Light head retention, like a film, very light lacing. Head replenishes itself as you drink. Good carbonation.

Aroma is light spicy hops. Sort of cooked vegetable smell. Has the typical Mexican beer smell.

Taste is pretty much Mexican beer. Roasted barley malt, some corn. I taste light spicy hops. No bitterness, lightly sweet. No skunk. Very clean.

Mouthfeel is light and watery. Very clean, very smooth and easy to drink. Crushable, very.

Overall, this is decent. It’s light, easy drinking, easy enjoyable beer. Goes well with food or friends. I’d recommend this for an alternative to Budweiser. I’d recommend it in general. I would absolutely buy this again if ever I wanted a Mexican brew.

rostetti (129) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle from local market. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is malty, has some hay and bread. Actually not that bad for a mass produced lager.

DraftDodger (1007) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2016
Copenhagen 18/6 2016. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. Two bug red X's leads the thoughts to porn flicks. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Settles as small islands of foam sailing around. Pretty bland aroma. A little malty sweetness and light bitterness. Strong fizzy carbonation and watery palate. The flavor is perfectly unexciting. Quite diluted and watery. Medium sweetness followed by very light bitterness and a little saltiness. Run of the mill.

12-ounce bottles in a pint glass. Typical mass-produced lager, although maybe a little better than some. Light on flavor, but refreshing.

At a bbq with the amber. I liked it less which is not saying much. It is just another plain old beer. Corn and malt and watery.

nilsas (3306) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2016

Lukt: Humle og malt.
Utseende: Gyllen.
Skum/kullsyre: Tynt skum.
Smak: Humle og malt.
Hvor: Kjøpt@Vaaland, Bryne, Nydt@Hjemme.
Medium: Flaske@330ml, ABV@4,5%, Når@27.05.2016
Kommentar: Dete er 30 år siden sist jeg smakte denne. Må innrømme den smakte bedre da. Men den gangen var ikke standarden som idag. At den dengangen var drukket i 30 varmegrader i Mexico gjorde nok også sitt til at det føltes bedre.

Panzassa Kuopiossa 4/2016. What can I say? Nothing interesting, nothing disturbing, beer for those who don’t like beer.
