Clear Amber with a thin beige head. Moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with a somewhat dry taste with good hop balance. Not sure why this beer is so expensive. Finishes clean and dry.

[backlog] 22-03-16 // bottle at Taco Grill, Cancun, Mexico. Amber colour. Malty base. One of the better maxican macros.

12oz bottle. Pours light brown/Amber. Aroma of bread, corn. Flavor is a sweet malt with hints of grain and caramel. Not that bad. An excellent choice when all that is available are horrible macro Mexican lagers and then this. I’ll take this every time.

I used to like this more than some of the other crappy Mexican lagers but I think I’d certainly rather have a Montejo or Leon these days. Good old reliably cheap can o junk. Some rusty copper aroma and mash malt.

Little on the nose. Maybe some caramel and malt, but not much aroma. Pours golden amber, light lacing. This is a macro-style amber lager; a touch of malt, a bit of caramelly roast, some light hopping, but an overall watery finish that leaves a hint of bitter. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I drank this at some oportunities at Mexico-City. It is a drinkable amber beer,,nothing special, grainy, few hop, caramel, a bit watery, perfect for hot days with mexican spicy snacks.

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)

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.
