1.2 Litre bottle drank off the coast of Mexico in my Cunard Stateroom on 31 Jan 2013. I really enjoyed this: it had a good amber body and was clean and clear looking, a thin off-white head sat on top of each pour. Maltier than I expected and overall a fine (for such a cheap brew) beer. Refreshing and tasty (the malts giving it some flavour and sweetness, the hops giving some bite).

A reddish copper beer with a thin off white head. In aroma, clasaic lager with mineral notes, and light sulfur. In mouth, a watery caramel with grassy german hops, soapy and mineral. Bottle from Oxxo, 10 pesos.

Tasted in 2010 (backlog). Brown with a small white head. Aroma is of corn and apple. Taste is of corn and malt.

This neat label (for a Mexican beer) really drew my attention when it first hit my grocery store’s shelf. And the fact that it’s offered in brown bottles is also alluring (for a Mexican beer). It pours a dark amber color with a short-lived white head and light carbonation. Lacing? None to speak of. The aroma is of every other Mexican lager known to man, but with a slight burn caramel character. It smells thin, light, and... well, of an amber lager. It’s light-bodied in the mouth, as a lager of this caliber should be, I suppose, but has a slightly malty mouth feel, decorated well with more of that burnt caramel flavor that was in the aroma. It feels a little weird in the mouth, though, and takes a turn for thew worse (pleasantry-wise, that is) the moment that you swallow. The thin, almost spicy, burnt caramel bitterness quickly evacuates from the mouth, leaving a strange sensation under the tongue. The rest of the experience, as the beer finishes, is mostly a slight caramel bitterness - and that’s it. Overall, it seems a little unbalanced, but still better than your average Mexican bear.

Pours a very pretty amber color. Aroma is primarily sweetness and not much else. The first sip is mostly sweet but that fades into wateryness. As it warmed I got a bit of an apple taste as well. But any flavor that does appear tends to disappear as quickly. Better than Corona but just not much other than water going on.

mzaar (1701) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2013
Ljusbrun öl, vitt bubbligt skum som håller sig länge. Maltsötma, vanilj, citrus i doften. Ljust bröd, smörkola, röda bär och fruktighet i smaken. Lite för tunn för ett högre betyg.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours ruddy dark amber with a very transient head. Moderate malty aroma. Little hop noticeable. Med + body. Flavor is malty in a lightly roasty way. Could pass for Oktoberfest. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s moderately bitter. Could do for a session beer.

Clear brown-amber with a slight red tint pour. Aromas of Brown bread and corn husks. Very drinkable malty flavor. One of my favorite Mexican beers. Is now available out side of Northern Mexico.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and caramel with metallic finish. A decent American dark lager.
