Pours a straw from the tap, little head. Sweet, adjunct-y aroma and flavor, but beats a Corona.

Drank on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Dickson City, PA. Pours golden clear with plenty of carbonation. Pretty regular beer.

sonotono (231) - torino, ITALY - OCT 17, 2015
Bottiglia 35.5 cc. Odore cereali, sapore tenue dolce, amaro inesistente. Non il mio genere preferito, ma sicuramente ci sono birre pari tipologia migliori.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2015
I had to rerate this due to a mistaken bottle: Pours a see-through yellow and has a grassy, metallic smell with maybe a dash of lemon. Similar taste and had a light fluffiness with a small quickly vanishing head. Not my go-to cheapy beer, but better than a corona and I often refer to it as a "Mexican Budweiser".

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.
