Pours a clear yellow with less than 1 finger head. Almost no aroma, flavor of corn and maybe just a bit of citrus.

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!

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.

Can - Light grain, green apple and corn. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet .light grains and some corn. Light and refreshing, but doesn’t taste or smell great.

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.

0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Drank directly from the bottle. Nothing special, Mexican lager good for a hot summer day. Probably contains corn. EU labels don’t have to state any ingredients except barley malt. Taste is maybe a bit more malty than usually in pale lagers. Or maybe it’s just my imagination.

Can on a American Airlines flight. Pale gold with a thin head. Aron’s is malt and grain. Flavour is grain and corn, a little bitter metal.

ttoadee (971) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pale gold pour, absent head. Nose is sweet malted corn. More sweet than not. Middle is, what? The sweet corn from the aroma is the main flavor profile with a slight floral presence. Finish is vapid. I cannot figure this one out.

Típica mexicana. Para tomar fría, porque si no mejor no tomarla. Sin aroma, sin cuerpo, sabor cereal, maíz. Aun sí mejor que Tecate.
