( 12oz bottle no thanks to swalden28, wow you got that twice in one night Stephen!) This bottle is slightly different than the one in the picture. The newer bottles read in all caps NO RETORNABLE. I cleverly deciphered this cryptic message shortly after smelling and ingesting this awful "beverage". Absolutely no retailer, wholesaler, and I think even FEMSA knows now they don’t want this shit back. It’s that bad. Pours clear amber with a head that runs away like a soda’s might. Nose of hairspray, dirty/old underwear. Taste of water, dirty, and kind of grainy. Watery finish.

Cavie (3754) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle......provided by Swalden28. Clear brown orange color. Smells of hot honey and grain. Taste is dirty. Sort of sweet but some sort of unpleasantness also. It has an old tea flavor.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2010
bottle, thanks to swalden28, hadnt seen this in a long time, reminds me of an old Carta Blanca, flavors of fizzy spoiled grain and nuts

BMan1113VR (7835) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle thanks...no, from... Swalden28. Pours with an amber body and a white head. Aroma of sugar, corn, apple and dryer sheets. Taste is sugar, ass, and apple. Fizzy, dry and altogether undrinkable.

After living in Mexico, I have had this beer so many times but dont know why I havent rated it yet. It pours a clear dark amber color, definitely more appealing than a pale looking sol or corona. Aroma is yeasty but with a slight hint of maltiness and caramel. No real hop aroma noted. Taste is bitter but balanced somewhat by the sweet maltiness. Palate is average, not as bitter of an aftertaste as other mexican pale lagers. Its a shame they dont export it to the US.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2010
pours a slightly darker yellow than most mexican beer, small white head, touch of lace. a touch of grain in the nose. light grainy flavor. light bodied, clean finish. perhaps one of the better mexican light lagers. sampled in the lobby bar of the barcelo premium in huatulco.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nice looking amber with decent off-white head. Aroma is very light malt and light caramel, faint hop. Flavor is exactly the same. Mouth feel is light with high carbonation, a bit watery. Overall, a small lightly tasting beer...not bad.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Geiserich (3311) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 8, 2009
Bottled: Brown color, small, foamy brownish head. Sweet malty aroma, some fruity notes. Flavor is malty, grainy, bit watery. Astringent finish, nearly no hops remarkable. Not bad.

Well , i waited so long to sample this beer since its Mexican but it wasnt being sold here in my region which its the northwest, until recently months at selected restaurants and Bars, i consumed this one at the ¨¨Red British PUB ¨¨, at draft, i heard a lot of good things also. ITS GOOD , Hasnt too much aroma, a bit varamel palate, a bit lager-like palate hasnt too much carbonation, a descent fading, semi-grey head, and a dark-brown color, a bit watery light-body some raisins maybe there, has a Light beer aftertaste, which its a bit like when you brush your teeth an inmediately drink a soda. Not bad.!!
