3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle. Hey, it is what it is -- if you’re expecting anything other than a starch-heavy, corn-tinged, mass-produced run-of-the-mill American lager, don’t be a hater. Slightly colored, but not in the realm of Vienna-style beers. I’d called it a ’tweener. (#6170, 4/18/2016)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, in Mexico, a couple of weeks ago. Served with lime. Asked for a glass, and barkeep didn’t quite understand, had to crank out a little rusty espanol to help him understand.
Poured a medium caramel color, because it was such a small glass, not a lot of head. It was slightly amber color. Little retention, almost no lacing.
Aroma was slightly caramel sweet, and brready. Not a lot to write about here.
Taste was okay, it was similar to Corona and other Mexican beers, but perhaps a little better. The lime doesn’t really help this one out that much, but I did it anyway because the barkeep kept insisting on it. Slightly sweet, caramel and a touch of hops, but only a touch.
Mouthfeel was light, and it had a slightly grainy texture to it.
Overall, it was okay. I wasn’t super impressed. I only got it because I had never heard of it before. But it was better than Corona. Would I recommend it, no...but I would buy it again to remember the fun times I had.

Another small 1.2l bottle in Playa del Carmen. Caramel brown colour. Some inviting hop spiciness in the aroma, which sadly vanished by the time came to taste. High carbonation. Not quite bitter enough, a bit flabby and corny, some caramel malt sweetness. Not too bad.

16 oz can at Panic en la Playa cinco. Deep amber appearance with a small head. Mild malt aroma with hints of caramel and corny grains. Similar flavor, nutty malts and husky grains. Smooth and fairly clean for a Mexican domestic beer. Light to medium body. Better than expected overall.
