Mixed 12-pack of Mexican beer from a grocery. Pale yellow with lots of carbonation. Minimal head. Corn with a touch of citrus taste with a bit of "bite" in the after taste. An okay beer, a touch better than a Corona for comparison. I could drink these sitting on the beach in Mexico...

(Flasche) Es hat eine goldgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist leicht würzig und leicht oxidiert. Der Geschmack ist spelzig, leicht samtig, etwas bitter und ein klein bisschen harzig.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden color, some slight head, no lacing. The aroma is grassy, flavor is slightly malty. Basically it’s alcoholic water. It’s fine.

For the :Most Interesting Man in the World" to say this is his goto beer, then he is boring when it comes to his beer likes! Nothing really going on here with this adjunct lager. It’s not overly offensive but nothing memorable either. It does appear to have more light malt than Tecate or Corona where maize (corn) is the main player. Drink Real Cold if thirsty my friend!

KoRoBeNiKi (131) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
golden beer with no head. No aroma in the slightest, slight malt ending. Like the other lighter beers by Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma. Better than Corona but then again that is Corona. Worse than Modela.

Bottle: Straw gold with ample carbonation and a small white head. Aroma and flavor was grain/corn. Light bodied with a thin texture and a slightly bitter finish.
