I would not choose to rate a mainstream beer like this if people would not be so unFair with it, so here I am. To begin with, lets consider to major facts. This beer was conceived for a country where wheater conditions are predominantly hot all year around, and where its people have therefore develop a palate for refreshing beverages. That being said, and knowing the processes and recipes behind this beer, I have to say that this is by far the best mainstream beer available in Mexico. I mean, for that price and considering the circunstamces, it is a ver decent Munich style beer, with bock notes and a dark colour. The bitterness is adequate and gets a not so bad balance of light caramel notes. Carbonation is high but again the beer is marketed in a place where thirst matters more than taste. I wont go as far as saying that this beer is good for high standars, of course, but to declare that this is "not at all a good beer" is just snob. There is beer for every situation, palate and place, and a lot of thinsg to be consider far beyond taste or purity. So when thinking about this beer, compare it with beers of its like and avoid shallow comparisons with Mikeller or Abbey beers.

Drank straight out of the 12 ounce bottle on my honeymoon, aromas of grass, light toast, and some raisins. Flavors follow suit, nothing too special about this beer, but still enjoyable on the beach in Mexico.

can, 355 ml.
It poured a light amber colour with head that disappeared straight away.
Nothing special on the aroma, almost non existent.
Taste, the same. Nothing traceable, nothing distinguishable.
Medium on the body and light carbonation.
This one is like your usual mexican beer with some drops of a colour agent, just to change its colour,nothing else. Really disappointed with this one, I was expecting much more taste.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma prácticamente nulo. Ligero a maltas, sin embargo el poco aroma es a consecuencia de los adjuntos.
A la vista es una cerveza color ambar y a la luz practicamente traslucida. Alta carbonataciony nula espuma.
Sabor altamente picoso debido a su alta carbonatacion. Esta cerveza no es para nada de las mejores, más bien apta para quitar la sed.
Al paladar se deja sentir su malta un poco amarga con un final sencillo, confirmando su alta carbonatacion.
