Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones durante 2013. Para acompañar comida mejicana, aunque parece tener cierto sabor maltoso a cereal algo dulce que destaca sobre la planitud que presenta en todo lo demás. Para tomar como algo diferente si no hay otra opción.

This beer is smooth and tasty. The alcohol is hard to detect so watch out when you drink Modelo... Several beers can rapidly disappear. You will enjoy the hint of vanilla.

Very sweet flavor and slightly above average as far as Mexican beers go. Interesting bottle at least.

Why do mexican beers taste like this? Urine-like appearance, unremarkable aroma, weak taste with a bit of a bite as it goes down. There must be something decent South of the border!

Typical beer with nothing special about it. Well - bottle is nice. Little bit too sweet as well.

poured from can into a shaker. A typical mexiacn beer. Not the greatest but not the worst just average.

Pack of 3-tallboys at a 7-Eleven, on Sunset Blvd. in L.A. on my first trip there. Getting ready to head out to the Whiskey-a-Go-Go on this Mexican swill. Sweet malty nose and very light corn. Tasted decent for a cheap lager at first (malty) but with time, the rusty water from the hop kind of turned me off. Gets kind of too sweet as well. Or maybe too thick for a swill. I’ve tried it, now I am good. Heading to the Rainbow as well. Come and join me."

Bottle. Schiuma alta e grossolana, di veloce discesa, colore giallo oro scuro e limpido, aroma maltato e con nota di miele, al palato corpo leggero e acquoso, media carbonazione, in evidenza le note maltate, il finale lieve e amaro finisce per renderla appena bevibile in una giornata afosa ma non certo invernale.

cool bottle is about the only thing going for this beer, syrupy sweet with corn in the finish. not good
