UPDATED: JUL 1, 2009 This was enjoyed in Cabo San Lucas Hilton. It is sold like Bud or Miller in the USA. I drank mostly from bottles and cans. It is very drinkable cold on a hot beach. There is nothing remarkable about this beer. This was enjoyed again at Four Wids in Holden Beach. It is a great beach beer. Cold and refreshing.

Bottle. Thin and light. I think the company dropped the ball on this one.

Bottle. Rather thin for a pale lager, and that says alot. Kinda skinky, but overall this is just boring and bland.

A can. ::::: This was a close encounter of the bland kind. I can’t believe I drank the whole thing.

Not a very impressive beer. Lacks flavour, even for a Mex. beer. Interesting bottle shape, but other than that pretty boring.

If you’re in Mexico and your aim is to get rip roarin’ drunk, you can usually get this stuff pretty cheap. Horse piss for pennies, it is.

Extremely watery. Thin flavour. Metallic finish. A horrible beer. I could imagine it would be great with some burittos or something??

Golden lager color. White head that dissipated almost instantly. Thin metallic flavor. Sweet note of cider in the middle of the flavor. Not enjoyable.

Preservative-laden, astringent, bubbley and acidic. The Mexican equivalent of Miller Lite.
