If you cant buy Corona, Dos Equis or Victoria this will be the next best Mexican Cerveza. Drinkability by numbers good without killing you. Too pricey though, go with the others listed for the money.

While this is no fantastic beer it is very good for cooking and is fantastic in most beer cocktails particularly Micheladas

Not a huge fan of many Mexican brews at all... this seems to be the least offensive of the megas.

Mexican PBR basically. Ubiquitous here in Chicago. Perfectly suitable porch pounder. Orale, cabron!

Chalumeaux (681) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Poured from bottle golden pour with a one finger white head. Aromas of corn malt and bread. Taste is lackluster and would improve with lemon or lime slices.

(Can). Straight from the can on Bob’s deck during Labor Day weekend. Not bad but not a standout within the Pale Lager style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a remarkable brew, as it doesn’t even taste or smell like beer. The stuff just fizzes away before you know it. Really not worth you while, not even ice cold.

very light amber color, almost nonexistent head. very light aroma of lemons, a bit salty or grainy. light on the palate and easy finish. preferred over Corona.
