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...

ElCapitan22 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Pours a pale yellow color with minimal lacing and no head retention. Smells of corn and malt. Nothing special at all. A decent beer for the beach, but nothing I’d rave about.

Cerveja pilsen, mas não é das melhores pilsen, pois não tem nada demais. Não vale tomar novamente não. Tomei no MSC Lírica. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
A corona knockoff that tastes just slightly dirtier. Pours a clear yellow. Fizzy and thin. Corn. Decent on a hot day.

Aroma fraco e com cereal tipo milho. Sabor fraco, com bem pouco lúpulo e gosto metálico.

wedgie9 (2100) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Tasted on 11/30/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased in a mixed sixer at the grocery store. Pours clear pale golden with a thick white head that quickly recedes to average lace. The nose is corny malt, pretty typical mass produced pale lager, with a touch of creamy wheat and just a bit of grassy green. The flavor is maybe a touch more green grass, but even less malt, really not giving me much. The body is light with fizzy soda carbonation and not much of a finish to speak of.

Multiple bottles at Cori and Greg’s. Clear yellow pour with a big white head. Bready, grainy, limey, slightly doughy aroma. Taste is much the same - cereal, twangy, slightly grassy and lime. Light body with high carbonation. Not terrible.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Draft at Mad Mex. Pale gold pour, thin white head, mild hops, corn in the nose and taste. Nothing going on here. A Mexican Coors.

GreatDane1632 (609) - USA - NOV 23, 2014
Typical Mexican lager with about three extra kernels of crystal malt to give it a tad more flavor. I would still prefer this over BMC.

Tastes like a carbonated water. Poor quality beer. Absolutely no aroma. Do not be foolish by the tv commercials

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 If you’re not drinking this beer ice cold with a lime and with spicy food you’re doing it wrong. Spicy hot links on a bun with fried egg and this beer, yum all around.
