1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12floz/355ml bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Very mild. Hardly anything going on. Some Wonder Bread-esque malt.
Appearance: A crystal clear, red-brown body with an incredibly fizzy, instantly-dissipating head.
Taste: Mild malt. Not bitter at all. Hardly any flavor.
Palate: Very light bodied. Quite fizzy. Ends on malt.
Overall: People came in for weeks harassing us for this beer where I work. We eventually caved and bought cases of six packs and 12 packs. It’s not very good or flavorful. Negra Modelo is better.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice amber colour, with no head. High carbonation, refreshing, not astringent, not hoppy. Sweet malts and some caramel somewhere. Not a Corona nor Tecate, thats for sure.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Coba temple, Quintanna Roo. Barely discernible from the Pacifico lager I consumed with gusto moments prior to popping the top on this critter. Nothing is more refreshing after climbing a Mayan Temple in the scorching heat of the Yucatan. Again, most Mexican beers taste the same after the third one here....

Light Brown, Small Head, Minimal Lacing. Wow. Mexico has something else other than Corona style Lager... Sweet malt, Barely noticeable bitterness. Nothing special, but then again, easy to drink . Decent.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle. Very generic dark lager. Nothing really good or really bad sbput this one. Good alternative to cervesa style beers in Mexico if you find it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
