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

not as good as the amber xx...bout halfway between that (2.4) and the average macro swill being passed off as beer. good for the $$? maybe, but why bother."

I thought to myself, the only reason this isn’t Bud is because it is an import. It is markedly better than bud though, as there is no lingering nasty after taste, and there is a mild taste of wheat or barley or something that kind of lingers for a second, but that’s about it. I thought to myself ’ooh, ooh, ooh! Bubbley water!’

Some of these reviews are freakin awful hilarious! ! Clear pale fizzy yellow with minimal head. Watery. Corn. Grain. Its swill. Decent enough for when you don’t give a Damn.

One of my favorite mexican beers for the simple fact that the Green bottle helps prevent skunking. Light Crisp Taste, w/ twang salt & a lime tastes similar to 7up. Usually pack these for the beach. Can drink a 6 pack for breakfast easy and continue about my day no issues.

Did someone spill beer in my water? Wow does this lack flavor. Smooth and easy to drink, but awfully boring.

On tap at El Señor Sol. Gold and clear appearance with a diminishing white head. Crisp and lightly bitter with light sweetness from pale malts. Light bodied and pretty easy to drink.

Poured from a 12oz green bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a slight skunky aroma with a bit of hops Appearance- A very pale yellow, with a heavy dose of carbonation. Head is a thin white strip. Taste: On first sip the crisp light body is noticed. Has a malt / corn flavor also. Palate- as noted this beer has a light body with heavy carbonation, this beer goes well with food, especially spicy food. Overall- a food beer that does not disrupt the flavor of a meal and it can be consumed in masse!! Not a bad beer to have when one is not enough.

Watery, not good even for the style. One of the worst I have had for a while.
