I refuse to go into detail about this beer. It smells better than Bud and tastes a little better.

12 oz. Bottle. Despite the clear bottle, it doesn’t smell skunked. A clean malt aroma, typical of Mexican cervesa. Medium body and smooth. While not too distinguishing, it beats the Corona, Tecate, Sol type.

Hmm... I actually liked this beer. It did not have all that much taste, but I think that it is far superior to Corona in almost every single way. Definately a very light beer, but a light beer can be a good beer if made right and I think that this one was. People should stop being biased against Mexican beers so much, even though most are pretty poor.

An average lager, but I preferred this to Corona, Dos Equis and Sol when in Mexico. Not sure why, but preferred withoot lime. The dark version is better.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I’ve consumed enough beer at Mexican restaurants to have had this beer before, but I’d never really thought about what it tasted like and actually thought to compare to...other beers.
Appearance is slightly darker than most mainstream American lagers. There is little to no head and no lacing of any kind. Nothing about this particular example of this beer indicates that anything special went into the manufacture (I hesitate to use the word brewing) of this beer (this is from a can). Smell is practically non-existent. Taste is very much of corn, and is rather sweet, like Coors Light, which I find slightly unpleasant. The next time I have Mexican food, I suspect I’ll save myself a few $$’s and drink something domestic instead...it won’t be missed.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz can: Pours a golden color with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is somewhat malty, corn, wet cardboard, and some spiceiness. Taste is lightly malty, corn, and a metallic note. Palate is watery and everso slightly bitter. Overall, It’s a not so good pale lager that is best served ice cold. It’s rather blah...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear dark golden color with a very thin layer of alabaster bubbles. Aroma and taste are of sweet malt, grass, hay, spice and lemon, with subtle hops bitterness well blended. Well carbonated, with a nice mouthfeel. Ending is of citrus and sweet malt. This is a nice lightly aromatic pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is bready with some sweet corn. Flavor is about the same plus lingering breadiness like other mexican lagers, which isnt too bad. More of a pervasive corn bread aftertaste than some regional competitors. Nothing great and not an exceptional value, but decent for what it is.
