When in Mexico...this is better to drink than the water. Not by much though.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours golden with little head. Taste is fairly typical; lightly sweet malt with very little hops. Negra Modelo is much better.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the better South American beers I have had. Stronger flavor fuller body. Not a bad partner for a taco night.

12 oz bottle split with Jredmond. Body is Gold. Aroma is similair to a dogs butthole, but the taste is extremely smooth and very refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 12 oz bottle split with Pwn3d. Pours a pale golden body. Aroma is soft skunky character, pale malt, grains and corn. With no other options available, serve this with a lime, and it’s smooth and refreshing enough.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from the can at an outdoor concert. Little aroma, but pleasant. The flavor is respectable as Mexican beers go. Was definitely the best beer choice at the concert and I would choose it again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2009 Odd shaped clear stubby bottle. Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color. Hints of lemony or citrus aromas. Good level of carbonation. Taste is somewhat lemony or lime, just a bit. Comes across almost industrial and processed, mildly tart. Tho there is no bitterness on this short finish, it does have a metallic background. Odd watery creek like soda effect.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
More flavor than Corona, which (1) doesn’t say much about Corona and (2) doesn’t say much about this beer.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can, some gas station in Ferndale, WA
Golden colour. Thin line of head. The aroma shows green apples, high alcohols, some random fermentation byproducts that ought to have blown off...not lagered much I guess. On the palate, it’s still quite cidery and grainy but fades into watery oblivion just enough to allow me to choke back the can. Could they have spent less time and money making this?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Golden color. Aroma of malt and leather. Flavor has the pronounced leather and dull hop character of Mexican beers. The hops are noticeable, but have a rather dull oxidized taste. Finish is drinkable, but I prefer Bohemia in this type. A big step up from Corona though, with more full body and substance.
