Bottle at a tasting. Thanks mom for this bottle! Clear amber color. Aroma of toasted malt, a bit of caramel and biscuits and a grainy hint. Sweetish flavor with some slightly toasted malt and a dry finish. Light-bodied with strong carbonation.

Didn’t like this one. Very little in the way of flavor here--a hint of corn syrup, soapy head, not much else. On the up side, the lack of flavor means you can chug it will eating spicy tacos by the dozen.

Crisp with a slight bitterness and a tad heavier than the other pale lager imports it might compete with. Overall more flavorful than a typical Mexican macro lager. Modelo Especial is my preferred Mexican lager in the US, only because Indio and Victoria can’t be had here (at least where I live).

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottles in Tlachichuca, Mexico. Fairly typical light Mexican lager. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Bready, one-dimensional matls. Had an odd lactic-like sourness. Mild corn-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Drinkable, when fresh, but unexciting.
