Bottle at a Mexican restaurant in Lombard: No Way Jose. Served with a frosted mug. Meh. But at least he asked first if I wanted a lime. Nice brown pour, leaving a thin layer of foam. Smell from the bottle carries a good dose of brown malt. Taste also has mellow brown malts. I think there’s some corn, but it’s not that obvious. The mug is causing icy bits of beer to form, so I’m doing most of the rating from the bottle. There I get a good impression of a smooth amber beer with a clean lager finish and no graininess. A good palate cleanser for the really spicy salsa this place serves. Filling, and leaves a good "burp," too.

One of the better Mexican lager beers this one is a little sweet and caramel flavored. Pours light yellow in color with a white head. Had out of a can in puerta Vallarta ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1323) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Brown pour with a white head. It has a malty, bread aroma. The medium body has a smooth body and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with an easy finish.

12 oz bottle. (White Cross Liquor) Las Vegas, NV.
Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, mild hops and metal in a blah aroma. The flavour is... metal, sweetness and malt. Useless.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
Light amber-brown. Thin, sweet, and bland, vague caramel. That said, this ends up being one of the more reliable Mexican swills.

nimbleprop (5787) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 20, 2014
A couple 12oz bottles at my holiday party. Pours a clear amber with some creamy head. Nose has mild caramel, cheap malt, some corn, a little yeast. Flavor follows, some dough, some soggy biscuit, some chewy toffee. Watery finish.

Bottle in tulum mexico. Pale. Very watery and kinda off flavor. Finishes with pale malt and skunkiness. Generic and pretty bad.
